What Are Terpenes?

Introduction to Terpenes

What are terpenes?

This question continues to gain prominence across wellness circles, kitchens, dispensaries, and hazy living rooms worldwide.

In short, terpenes are the organic compounds responsible for the distinct aroma produced by plants. Their rich, varied scents form the basis of the essential oil industry and can be found in all of our favorite foods and beverages.

Beyond the pleasant fragrances, terpenes have been associated with various potential benefits and are integral to understanding the holistic experience of using various plants and botanical extracts.

Below, you’ll discover everything you need to know about terpenes, their potential benefits, and how to maximize their potential with AUXO vaporizers.

Terpenes in the Natural World and Society

Botanical terpenes are ubiquitous in the natural world, playing critical roles in plant health and human society.

Terpenes are incredibly diverse, with over 20,000 types having been identified in nature and at least 100 typically found in various botanical species. They serve various functions, such as deterring herbivores from eating them or attracting pollinators, and they contribute immensely to a plant's survival and propagation.

In society, terpenes are used for their aromas and potential wellness effects. For instance, lavender tea, rich in a terpene called linalool, is popularly consumed for relaxation, and the calming scent of a rosemary sprig, with its high camphene content, is a well-loved essential in many kitchens.

In another example, limonene in citrus fruits contributes to the refreshing sensation we associate with a freshly peeled orange. In the same vein, the aroma of a pine forest on a cool morning elevates our alertness thanks to the pinene found in pine needles.

Ultimately, terpenes are an integral aspect that play a significant role across the natural world and society at large.

Understanding the Entourage Effect

The 'entourage effect' is a fascinating concept in the world of plant compounds.

This theory proposes that the diverse compounds within a plant—namely terpenes and cannabinoids—can synergize to enhance each other's effects. This complex interplay may not only boost overall potency but could also modify the duration and quality of the experience.

For example, certain terpenes might modulate how quickly cannabinoids are metabolized, influencing their onset and duration. This intricate dance between plant compounds paints a compelling picture of the potential holistic benefits of terpenes and cannabinoids working in concert.

Before the entourage effect theory, cannabinoid enthusiasts only focused on cannabinoid-rich products. Now, enthusiasts search for lab-tested cannabinoid products with certain percentages or amounts of specific terpenes for their needs.

Terpenes and Health: A Natural Synergy

Another question that arises frequently is what are terpenes used for?

Terpenes have widely been associated with potential wellness benefits and are being increasingly explored for their possible therapeutic effects. For instance, linalool has been studied for its potential anxiolytic properties. This could explain why some people report feeling relaxed after inhaling linalool-rich aromas or why it may be good for anxiety.

Similarly, myrcene with its earthy aroma, and caryophyllene, with its characteristic spicy scent, have both been researched for their potential analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects, suggesting they may be good for pain. Pinene, with its fresh, piney smell, and limonene, with its citrusy fragrance, have both been associated with potential mood-enhancing effects.

The Art and Science of Choosing the Best Terpenes

Choosing the best terpenes is a personal journey, and one that involves understanding the nuances of these intricate compounds. It's about aligning the specific characteristics of terpenes with your desired effects and experiences.

To do this effectively, it's crucial to consider the source of your cannabinoid products. It's always recommended to buy lab-tested products to ensure you get the terpenes in the percentages that you want. This important step guarantees quality and contributes to a safer and more informed experience.

When choosing cannabinoid products high in specific terpenes, such as linalool, for a more profound sense of relaxation, you open up possibilities for a more personalized and enriched experience. For example, a product high in pinene might be ideal for those seeking increased alertness.

Essentially, terpenes empower users to personalize their consumption, allowing them to curate their favorite flavors, aromas, and desired effects, culminating in a uniquely tailored experience.

Discovering Terpenes with AUXO

Even if you have the best product filled with the terpenes you love, it won't matter much if you don't have the right way to consume it.

Terpenes are volatile compounds that decompose and diminish in potency when subjected to temperatures beyond a specific threshold. Adding to the complexity, each terpene exhibits its own unique vaporization point.

For instance, limonene has a vaporization point of about 176°C (349°F), whereas pinene vaporizes at a slightly lower temperature of around 155°C (311°F). Thus, having a vaporizer with a wide range of custom settings can make a serious difference.

Even though many consumers have encountered terpenes before, using an AUXO vaporizer can be reminiscent of experiencing these aromatic compounds for the first time. With a wide array of temperature controls and superior quality, AUXO allows users to rediscover terpenes in a way they've never experienced before.

Embarking on a journey into the realm of terpenes becomes an exhilarating adventure with AUXO's advanced technology. The brand's flagship devices — the Calent and the Cenote — are engineered with an exacting emphasis on amplifying the interaction of cannabinoids and terpenes, transcending the limitations of traditional vaporizers.

The Calent: Flower Power in a Flash

The AUXO Calent is the pinnacle in vapor production and flavor availability when it comes to flower vaporizers. The Calent is built with dual-heating technology, offering both conduction and infrared sytems working in tandem, and a heating range of 356-428°F across 4 different preset settings.

This level of customization ensures that the delicate terpenes aren't degraded by excessive heat but are instead gently coaxed to release their unique aromas and flavors. Furthermore, the rapid heat-up time of 20-30 seconds ensures that you can savor the rich tapestry of terpenes almost instantaneously.

With its AUXO App compatibility, the Calent also offers the opportunity to change its settings remotely to pass to a friend, providing your sesh partners with an instant harmonious blend of potency and flavor.

The Calent’s impressive power is backed by a 2900mAh battery, supporting over 20 sessions when fully charged, making it a reliable companion for your terpene exploration on the go. The design of the Calent’s zirconia mouthpiece is also tailored to allow you to hit it from any angle, and is fully rotatable for ultimate portability.

The Cenote: Immersive Experience at Your Fingertips

The AUXO Cenote, referred to as the "Ultimate Smart Concentrate Vaporizer," elevates your sensory experience with its 360° all-around immersive lighting effects, customizable to match your mood or the terpenes you're exploring. Its easy-swap disposable ceramic nail design ensures the purity of all flavors, allowing the individual notes of different terpenes to shine through.

The Cenote comes with three preset temperature settings, providing a range of choices for different terpenes. However, the true magic lies in its Pro Mode, accessible via the AUXO App, which offers a wider range of temperature control, allowing you to fine-tune your session to the specific terpenes in your concentrates.

Moreover, the hand-blown borosilicate glass recycler attachment and the streamlined cylindrical body make the Cenote a joy to hold and behold. Supported by a 2000mAh/7.4v battery, it provides 12+ sessions per charge, offering an extended exploration of the terpene landscape.
