Cannabis Terpenes. As more and more research continues to be done on cannabis and its unique properties, many interesting discoveries have been made. One of the most exciting areas of cannabis research has been in regards to terpenes. Simply put, terpenes are what give cannabis its distinctive smell and taste. Not only are they responsible for aroma and flavour, but they have a direct influence on how other compounds within cannabis, such as THC the most well known psychoactive component, affect you and your body. This is known as the “entourage effect”.

Space Bear uses cannabis sourced from organic outdoor farms. The terpenes present within the cannabis are extracted using traditional steam distillation. This raw essential oil is then further purified and distilled using sophisticated laboratory equipment allowing us to create different terpene blends, each with unique and exciting properties.

It is very important to note that all of our terpenes are extracted from cannabis, not sourced from other botanical sources, such as citrus fruits. While these food grade terpenes are safe to use, we believe that they lack the distinct flavour and aroma of cannabis derived terpenes. Even when combined in exact ratios to attempt to recreate cannabis strains, these “cannabis derived profiles” just don’t have the smell and taste that is present only with terpenes extracted from cannabis.

Steam distillation isn’t the only way to extract cannabis terpenes. In fact, using more expensive and labor intensive high tech extraction methods, other companies are able to capture the lighter, more volatile terpenes that are lost during steam distillation. We set out to bridge the gap between inexpensive food grade terpenes and the higher priced cannabis terpenes currently on the market.

Space Bear products are available in 0.25ml bottles for $40 each, or for a limited time get all five Space Bear cannabis derived terpenes for $150. For larger quantities or wholesale inquires please contact us at info@thespacebearcompany.com and we will be happy to assist you.
