Terpenes are aromatic and flavorful molecules that impart distinct qualities on cannabis (and other plants and plant-derived products). Consumers love to view cannabis terpene profiles because they help inform them about the quality, flavor, and effects of the cannabis product. You can help distinguish your cannabis products by getting terpenes tested. At Juniper Analytics, we offer cannabis terpene testing that is fast and affordable. We screen for 40 unique terpenes that will help your cannabis product stand out to consumers.
Cannabis terpene profile testing informs consumers about the flavor, aroma, and effects they can anticipate when they use a product. Consumer and connoisseurs are becoming more educated and look to terpene profiles to gain insight. This is part of why getting terpene testing done truly adds value and differentiates your product. Cannabis that has a high overall terpene content is a mark of quality that shows how much hard work you have put into producing it. Just like in wine, good soil and plant care creates rich terpene profiles!
