Spraying terpenes on cannabis is a great way to add an enhanced aroma and flavor to the flowers. It can also be used to create signature scents, such as those associated with specific strains, like Gelato, Gorilla Glue or Lemon Cookies. This can make the smoking experience more enjoyable, while providing users with a personalized recommendation on the best strain for their needs.

Enhancing Effects

In fact, studies have found that consuming CBD-rich terpene extracts can offer more benefits than consuming CBD isolate alone. This suggests that terpenes may facilitate cannabinoid absorption and offer therapeutic benefits. Some terpenes can even make you laugh more.

Fast and Even Spreading

Terpene spray is a product specifically designed for spraying terpenes onto cannabis products. It guarantees fast and even terpene spreading thanks to its specially designed valve designed for spraying products. It is also apt for food-grade use as all of the ingredients are authorized for food-grade use and have been packaged and labeled under the corresponding health regulations and rules.

The Entourage Effect

When terpenes are sprayed on cannabis, it allows users to experience the entourage effect, where cannabis substances work together to optimize the therapeutic and psychoactive benefits of the herb. This means that users can benefit from an enhanced experience when consuming cannabis, as they will be combining cannabinoids with terpenes that offer their own unique effects.

How Do You Spray Terpenes On Weed?

When spraying terpenes on weed, it is important to wear nitrile gloves, goggles, and a mask to protect from the spray droplets. Additionally, it is best to store terpene spray in a dry, dark, and cold place in order to preserve freshness for longer.

To begin spraying, first, ensure that the bud is evenly spread across a flat surface. Then spray both sides of the flowers from 12-16 inches away in order to evenly coat the top of the buds without spraying too much in one area. Finally, store in an airtight container for 24 hours for homogenization of the terps in the herb. The amount of pressure applied to the spray top will affect how much is sprayed onto the flower. It is not recommended to spray horizontally or upwards as this can be dangerous and waste product. 

Are There Risks Involved In Spraying Terpenes On Weed?

Yes, there are some risks involved in spraying terpenes on weed. If done incorrectly or without taking safety precautions such as wearing gloves and goggles when spraying terps onto cannabis flower this can lead to potential health risks due to inhaling droplets or contact with skin/eyes.

Additionally, if too much terpene is sprayed onto cannabis it can lead to an unpleasant taste experience which could be off-putting for some consumers. Finally, some people opt for synthesized terpenes which can be more intense than naturally occurring ones; this practice should be avoided due to potentially negative impacts on health.

Safety Instructions

It is important to follow safety instructions when using terpene sprays as they can create harsh smoking or vaping experiences if too much is used. Additionally, they should not be applied to the skin as a fragrance or deodorant since they may produce harmful side effects in high doses.

Conclusion

Terpenes are an essential part of the cannabis experience, and by spraying them onto weed, you can optimize the therapeutic benefits of cannabinoids like THC and CBD. Not only can you enhance the aroma and flavor of your cannabis flower, but you can also create signature scents associated with specific strains. When done safely, spraying terpenes on weed can be a great way to experience the entourage effect and get the most out of your cannabis. So if you’re looking to take your cannabis experience to the next level, give terpene spray a try!
