Our Product Line
Strain Profile Blends
True Terpene Strain Profile Blends are designed to replicate the ratio of terpenes found in the world’s most famous strains. They enable you to customize the flavor, experience, and viscosity of your extracts and other natural products. True Terpene Strain Profile Blends are created by combining the highest quality botanical terpenes available. These terpenes are True Grade™ and not derived from cannabis. They do not contain THC or CBD.
If you would like to match the terpenes found in a certain cannabis strain and do not want anything but terpenes to be added to your product, look no further. No one uses more terpenes in their blends or comes closer to identically matching a cannabis strain than True Terpenes.
If you are looking for a strong, sweet flavor, check out our TERP Flavors line. TERP Flavors are a line of terpene-based flavors with added flavor molecules that are specifically designed to be as flavorful as possible.
Simply put, our strain profiles taste fantastic, but they will not taste or smell like cannabis without combining them with cannabis. This is because the diverse flavors and aromas of cannabis are produced by a complex mixture of phytochemicals which includes aldehydes, esters, phenols, AND terpenes.
A blend of just terpenes alone cannot replicate the flavor and aroma of cannabis. Just as a single spice does not make all of the flavor in a recipe. Think of terpene profiles as salt. You add a small amount and it enhances the combined qualities of all of the ingredients, and by adding too much can ruin the entire experience.
We do not offer cannabis or hemp derived terpenes. Hemp and cannabis-derived terpenes are not currently legal for sale as a food grade or GRAS ingredient.
This is because until there is a legislative change at the federal level, all extractions of hemp and cannabis which do not come from the seed or stalk are schedule 1 substances, including terpenes.
Licensed cannabis companies are permitted to extract terpenes and use them in regulated products, but the purchase or sale of hemp and cannabis-derived terpenes is classified as a transaction of a schedule 1 substance.
To make True Terpene Strain Profile Blends we search high and low for the best chemovars across the world. After our lab identifies the chemovars dominate terpenes, our development team creates a concentrated terpene blend which mimics the ratio of terpenes and other aromatic compounds found in the sample.
True Terpenes is recognized as offering the highest quality, purest terpenes and the best customer experience service in the industry.

TERP Flavors are enhanced blends of terpenes with the taste of the most in demand flavors. They enable you to customize the flavor and viscosity of your extracts and other natural products. These one-of-a-kind profiles are created by combining a base of terpenes with flavonoids, esters, and other flavorful phytochemicals, enabling you to add a whole new dimension of flavor to your products.
Yes. Our TERP Flavors line was designed strictly for flavor. This line of products was developed to taste fantastic without sacrificing the True Grade™ promise.
To make a TERP Flavor, we first start with an idea in mind of a flavor we would like to develop, a specific fruit for example. Next, we create a complementary terpene profile to act as the base for the flavor. Then, we formulate the body and top notes of the flavor and combine this with the base terpene profile to round out the blend. Finally, we homogenize the profile and sample the batch for quality.
We suggest a maximum of 10% total added terpenes in any product, this includes any combination of Pure Isolated Terpenes, Profile Blends, TERP Flavors, and VISCOSITY Extract Liquifier.

Pure Isolated terpenes are responsible for some of the most identifiable aromas and flavors in nature. Using terpene isolates in your products will enable you to create a unique flavor and aroma profile that is your very own. True Terpenes offers a wide variety of isolated terpenes so that you can craft the perfect mixture for your needs.
Pure Isolated Terpenes should be used as an additive for aroma and flavor. With Isolated terpenes it is suggested that you start with less than 1% by volume of any single terpene in a blend and work your way up until you reach your desired strength. Isolated terpenes are considered active at levels above 0.05%. As with all of our terpene products, we suggest you never add more than 10% by volume.
Isolated terpenes can be added to your products individually or as part of a custom blend. They are oils and will not mix with water-based products. View our How-To guide for more examples.
It is difficult to say what effect each terpene has on its own. In an attempt to gain a greater understanding, we have completed a meta-analysis of the research available and found mention of the qualities used as headings in the table below associated with the presence of the following terpenes and terpene combinations.
This should in no way be viewed as a definitive guide on how to use terpenes for an effect. The following table is based on studies which make suggestions and hypothesize based on various forms of data collection and experiment, many times without involving human studies.

Viscosity is the only extract modifier comprised of terpenes found natively in cannabis. The ingredients are Phytol, Beta-Caryophyllene, D-Limonene, Farnesol and Nerolidol. Viscosity Extract Modifier enables you to turn your extracts into the perfect flowing oil. It combines smoothly without separation, and will stay blended without additional additives or emulsifiers.
It does not contain PG, VG, PEG, MCT, Coconut oil, Vitamin E Acetate or any other non-organic ingredients.
High-purity cannabis extract has a consistency similar to honey. Adding terpenes can “thin” cannabis extracts to decrease viscosity and encourage flow. However, adding too great an amount of terpenes can result in negative and unpleasant side effects, especially when the ratio of cannabinoids to terpenes diverges from that expressed by the cannabis plant itself.
True Terpenes partnered with Dr. Jeff Raber, Ph.D. and The Werc Shop to formulate the all-new Viscosity. The Werc Shop’s team includes Ph.D.’s and scientists with over 100 years of combined experience studying cannabis and formulating products. Dr. Jeff Raber earned his Ph.D. in chemistry in 2002 from University of Southern California where he was a Harold and Lillian Moulton Fellow. He holds multiple patents, has published several peer-reviewed articles and is widely considered a leading expert on the chemistry of cannabis. Viscosity is formulated to True Terpenes’ True Grade™ standards. We use the highest quality raw materials and manufacture our products to GMP, ISO-2015:9001 & FSSC 22000 requirements.
The all-new Viscosity is comprised of ONLY terpenes found natively occurring in cannabis. The original Viscosity is a great extract modifier for THC products, but over the years our customers have asked a transparent ingredient list as well as Ingredients only found naturally in cannabis.
No. Viscosity uses synthetic phytol due to its greater purity and stability. Generally, synthetics can be more stable, pure and consistent than their natural counterparts.
Viscosity has a very mild color and odor that minimally contributes to the aroma and flavor of the product in recommended solution.
We suggest that you add 1-5% by volume and never suggest you use more than 10% total added terpenes in any product, this includes any combination of Viscosity, Strain Profile Blends, TERP Flavors, or pure isolated terpenes. Many clients use 5% strain profile and 5% Viscosity and are very happy with their results.
Yes, you can use Viscosity instead of MCT, PG, and VG with extracts.
Viscosity has optimal miscibility with cannabinoids and other terpenes. It’s formula is comprised of ONLY terpenes found natively in cannabis.
Research indicates that PG, VG, and PEG form toxic byproducts through pyrolysis. Studies found that heating to just 150°C yielded degradation products including carcinogenic formaldehyde, vinyl ethers, and a variety of smaller PEG oligomers. Considering the toxicity of the ethylene glycol monomer (a primary ingredient in automobile antifreeze) data describing the degradation of PEG at relatively low temperatures should raise serious concerns about the safety of the polymer, as well as PG and VG, as an additive.
MCTs are derivatives of glycerol so despite natural origins they are expected to suffer similar toxic pyrolysis. Indeed, studies on the pyrolysis of closely related food oils have indicated the generation of many different decomposition products, including the carcinogenic acrolein. While it remains unclear what risk is posed by its inclusion, the use of MCT oil as a carrier should be treated with some caution.
Viscosity should not be used to dilute strain profiles blends or pure isolates. Viscosity is a carrier-free mixture and should be diluted before use. If you mix Viscosity with isolated terpenes or strain profiles that mixture will need to be diluted before use. We never advise adding more than 10% total terpenes by weight or volume to any mixture. This includes any combination of isolated terpenes, Strain Profile Blends, TERP Flavors, and Viscosity.
You do not have to use Viscosity. Viscosity is a tool to be used if you need to thin your oil and do not wish to add terpenes with a potent flavor. You can use isolated terpenes or strain profiles without Viscosity.
Cutting agents are additives used in higher volumes that reduce product performance in lieu of profitability. A common example of cutting agent would be adding water to alcohol to increase profit margins and shelf life. Recently, it has been found that Vitamin E Acetate has been used as a cutting agent to reduce the amount of THC oil used in cannabis vape products.
No, Viscosity is not formulated to thicken oil, cut costs, or heavily dilute plant-based oils. It is not an adulterant.
No, the opposite actually! Viscosity is comprised of terpenes which help to thin the extract while keeping the ratio of cannabinoids to terpenes closer to what we find in nature.
People with Refsum Disease may encounter negative effects from phytol.
Heredopathia atactica polyneuritiformis or Refsum Disease (RD) is a hereditary, neurological condition thought to affect fewer than 1 in 250,000 in the general population, though exact figures are unknown. RD is caused by inherited mutations that reduce the ability of the body to metabolize phytanic acid, a type of branched fatty acid found in certain foods. Over time, toxic levels of phytanic acid can accumulate in tissues such as the blood/brain in those with RD, causing deleterious effects such as night blindness from retinal degeneration (retinitis pigmentosa), loss of smell (anosmia), weakness or numbness of extremities (peripheral neuropathy), deafness, loss of balance or coordination (ataxia), dermatological symptoms and irregular heartbeat (cardiac arrhythmia). While RD frequently begins in adolescence, sporadic diagnoses in adults 40 years old or older have been reported. Patients suffering from RD can effectively control their symptoms by avoiding foods containing phytanic acid, such as meat and dairy.
While humans absorb nearly all of their phytanic acid directly from their diet, phytol is converted by enzymes in the body to phytanic acid, so patients with RD must limit their intake of phytol as well.
Phytol does not cause deleterious effects in patients without RD. However, patients suffering from RD or those with a family history of the condition should not consume products containing Viscosity. If you experience any of the symptoms of RD while using a product containing Viscosity, please discontinue use and contact a physician immediately.
While allergies to phytol have not been identified, patients with Refsum Disease should not use products containing Viscosity to avoid potentially serious complications.
