I really can’t stress enough how important “terps” are to all things Cannabis. Here’s an article from the folks over at URSA which builds on the information offered on the previous article that we shared…
If you’ve reached the point in your relationship with cannabis where you find yourself researching which live resin or live rosin cartridges you should buy, chances are you know a bit about terpenes. But, if you want to really dive into the science behind cannabis terpenes and how they affect your experience, read on.
WHAT ARE CANNABIS TERPENES?
Terpenes are not unique to cannabis and occur naturally in almost every aromatic plant on earth. Botanical terpenes are responsible for much of the aroma and flavor you experience in weed, but they also have unique therapeutic and medicinal properties. Cannabis terpenes – of which there are more than 200 – develop in response to their growing environment in combination with their genetic makeup.
There are two types of terpenes: monoterpenes and sesquiterpenes. In relation to cannabis, monoterpenes are much more volatile and are among the first compounds lost once a plant is harvested. However, you can stop this from happening by freezing the plants right after harvest… (read the whole article here, including a handy guid to help identify which terps are right for you)
Folks, you may remember we had a brand on the menu until very recently called ZIPZ. You probably gave their flower a try, and if you did I’m positive you were impressed by both the quality generally and the value. You just really don’t get AAA indoor bud at that price point. Sadly they went away for a bit. Well, they’re back bigger and better with a new look, but the same great flower and the same wallet friendly pricing.
We currently have three strains of theirs on the menu, Coconut Horchatta, Zurple Gas (both of which we had as ZIPZ) and for the first time anywhere Zapphire Skunk. You will absolutely be hearing more about GEMZ as the brand blows up. Give them a try, I guarantee that you’ll be blown away.
Sometimes the menu on WeedMaps doesn’t sync properly with our inventory and that’s annoying (to both you and me), but they also occasionally drop some useful knowledge. Here’s one of the more informative articles I’ve seen on their site recently. And stay tuned! We’re in the process of bulking back up our preroll selection right now – both infused and non.

Fam! Did you know that we put individual items on sale? Well, we do. Usually when we’re getting towards the end of a batch or are just trying to clear up some shelf space we’ll drop the price on things. One such item is Runtz from LitHouse. It’s a great strain from top notch band for just $45/eighth! But act fast, there’s only a few available at that price and once they’re gone, they’re gone.
To find sale items simply click on the “sale” tag on the menu. The site’s still a little wonky (I know, I know… we’re working on it) so if there’s a specific product category you’re interested in it’s better to go into that category first and then click Sale. That way you’ll see all of the items as opposed to just the top 3 or 4.
