Hemp Strain Specifics and Terpene Benefits

Bronze, gold, purple, maroon, green, and gray. These are the colors of the labels on Liquefy Cannabis’ CBD oil tinctures. They come in 30 milliliter bottles and have 700 milligrams of full-spectrum hemp extract. But what is the difference between them?

First, there’s some terminology you should know.

Full-spectrum – oil that contains all of the cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids that were present in the plant before extraction. Liquefy uses organic hemp flower, not biomass, which refers to stalks, leaves, and leftover plant parts.

Cannabinoids – these are the chemical compounds in cannabis that produce physiological effects. CBD and THC are the most popular ones.

Terpenes – another word for essential oils. They are responsible for smell, and are found in all kinds of flora. In nature, they are a plant’s natural defense system against pests.

Flavonoids – these are responsible for color, like the beautiful oranges or purples cannabis boasts.

For a more detailed explanation of cannabis terminology, see our article CBD 101.

Strain Specifics

Each cannabinoid has its own therapeutic benefits, and studies suggest terpenes have an effect on them by downplaying or intensifying their effects. We see this more intensely with marijuana, with some strains making people feel more energized or more relaxed.

Strains are the different types of cannabis, each with their own unique genetic blend of cannabinoids, terpenes, ect. These unique combinations can create slightly different effects, much like aromatherapy. Hemp also comes in strains, and has a naturally higher concentration of CBD compared to THC.

At Liquefy, we extract from six different hemp strains. If you were to smell them in flower form, your nose could clearly pick out the difference in smell. This translates to a difference in taste once it’s in oil form.

Liquefy strains Lifter and Suver Haze next to their flower source.

Therefore, the only difference is the heaviness or lightness of the terpene profile. “Stronger” would be misleading, since one strain won’t make you less prone to anxiety or inflammation compared to another. For more experienced cannabis users, I recommend our heavier strains like Cherry Wine or Cherry 17. For new CBD users, I’d recommend something lighter, like Baox or Elektra. Lifter and Suver Haze is a good middle ground.

You can’t go wrong with any of them. It really boils down to your taste preference. While we don’t test for terpene profiles, below you’ll find a convenient chart displaying some terpenes commonly found in these strains and what other plants they’re in to give you a better idea of what scents and tastes it resembles.

As you can see, terpenes offer many of their own therapeutic benefits. Combined with cannabinoids, it’s really no wonder why we love full-spectrum hemp extract.
