Terpenes are volatile aromatic molecules that evaporate easily and readily announce themselves to the nose. Various researchers have emphasized the pharmacological importance of terpenes, or terpenoids, which form the basis of aromatherapy, a popular holistic healing modality. Cannabis compelling fragrance and particular psychoactive flavor are determined by the predominant terpenes in a strain.

One other method of cannabis extraction is using a tetrafluoroethane (TFE) R134a as a solvent. R134a by itself is often used in aerosol products for drug delivery. Products that are extracted using this method are called post winterized full spectrum oils as the amount of waxes in the extract right off the machine is usually less than 5% or even less than 2% in most of the cases. The process is very similar to CO2 extraction due to the fact that both are utilizing a gas for extraction and liquefying it when it is in contact with the material.

Did you know that in addition to the above-mentioned systems, there is also an endocannabinoid system (ECS)? Of course not, because if you are not a doctor or do not work with medical cannabis, it is unlikely that you will read about it. And still some scientists call the ECS system "the most important physiological system that participates in the establishing and maintaining of human health."

Most botanically sourced terpenes are extremely concentrated however almost always suspended in an Alcohol/Methanol/Ethanol solvent. These solvents must be employed in your formulations regardless of the solvents present. PBXTM delivers all the components of the flower we want and none of the by-products that CO2 or ethanol will create. Our Terpene fraction captures the entire terpene profile from the plant highly concentrated in original non water-soluble oils from the plant. PBXTM Terpenes are the perfect companion to our Full Spectrum Hemp oils, which is the follow-on fractionation concentrating the entire cannabinoid profile over 65% with a lower concentration of terpene oil. No other technology can deliver the natural hydrocarbons from hemp like PBXTM.
