Terpene* Tasting Kit
A tool that tangibly demonstrates, for the average person, what makes craft cannabis unique – the nuances of the nose and the nuances of the craft experience. A tool for the cannabis enthusiast to understand what it takes farmers years to learn – how to ‘smell’ cannabis.
You’ve used a wine-tasting kit, and you’ve used a coffee-tasting kit. This is a tasting kit that teaches you how to smell cannabis.
The Terpene Tasting Kit is a tool that helps you develop your sense of smell, expand your palate, and hone your ability to uniquely identify the six dominant terpene categories of a cannabis flower.
Like great craft beer, great craft cannabis can come from anywhere a skilled craftsperson is applying their knowledge.
You may not realize it yet, but you have been exposed to terpenes your whole life through flowers, plants, and trees. Terpenes are to smell what colors are to sight; they are the language for describing what you are experiencing. They are exceedingly abundant in cannabis and guide not only the flavor and scent; but they also tell us how that flower is going to affect you – what kind of ‘high’ you can expect. Learning to identify the eight most common terpenes and the Terpene Category that the flower corresponds to provides you with the framework for building your cannabis palate.
