Marijuana concentrates are an integral part of cannabis culture. Even so, one type of concentrate that’s gaining immense popularity in the sector is terp sauce. Terp sauce is famed for its superior flavor, aroma, and potency. But what is terp sauce? And how is it used? Let’s break it down.
What Is Terp Sauce?
Terp sauce, also known as THC sauce, dab sauce, or simply ‘sauce,’ is a form of cannabis concentrate teeming with flavorful terpenes. Named after the term terpenes, the organic compounds responsible for the unique aroma and flavor profiles in various weed strains, terp sauce stands out for its high terpene content. Terpenes are also believed to play a role in influencing the overall effects of a cannabis strain, contributing to what’s known as the entourage effect.
How To Use Terp Sauce
Using terp sauce isn’t too dissimilar from other types of concentrates. It’s commonly consumed via a method known as ‘dabbing,’ where it is heated on a hot surface and then inhaled. Tools like glass dab rigs, carb caps, and dabber tools come in handy here.
To dab terp sauce, you first need to scoop a small amount with a dabber tool. Then, heat the nail of your glass dab rig with a butane torch until it’s hot. Apply the cannabis sauce to the hot nail, use a carb cap to cover it, and inhale through the mouthpiece.
Sauce Vs Distillate
While both terp sauce and distillates are cannabis concentrates, they differ significantly in their production methods and characteristics. Distillates are produced by refining and purifying cannabis to isolate specific compounds, often resulting in a final product with up to 99% purity of THC or CBD. This high level of purity often leaves distillates without the aromatic terpenes.
On the other hand, terp sauce is made by extracting the whole plant, preserving a high concentration of terpenes alongside the cannabinoids. As a result, terp sauce has a richer flavor and aroma compared to distillates.
As the name suggests, sauce dabs refers to dabbing with terp sauce. What makes sauce dabs particularly appealing is their flavor and aroma. The high terpene content in terp sauce makes for an experience that is intensely flavorful and aromatic. It’s the ideal choice for cannabis connoisseurs seeking a more holistic and enhanced dabbing experience.
Live Sauce Vs Live Resin
Live sauce and live resin are both forms of cannabis concentrates derived from fresh cannabis plants, as opposed to those that have been dried and cured. However, there’s a significant difference between these two.
Essentially, live resin and rosin are extracted using butane or pressure and heat, respectively, and capture a full spectrum of cannabinoids and terpenes from the plant, often resulting in a waxy or buttery consistency. On the other hand, live sauce undergoes a longer, more complex process that separates and then recombines the cannabinoids and terpenes, resulting in a saucy consistency and a high terpene content.
Terp sauce is a cannabis concentrate that’s sure to tantalize the senses. Its high terpene content offers a superior flavor and aroma, while still delivering the potent effects of cannabinoids. Just remember, Like RSO and other potent cannabis concentrates, the effects of terp sauce can be powerful. So, start slow and use the right tools to enjoy the unique experience that terp sauce offers.
