Highest Terpene Concentrates at the 2015 US Cannabis Cup in Denver

Without belittling THC or CBD, many growers and extract artists alike have set their sights on terpenes. THC alone has little to no flavor, while CBD can taste like cherries on its own. The real flavor in a good concentrate comes from the terpenoid content.

Terpenes affect the consistency of an extract; shatters, waxes and saps all have different terpenoid content. The types of starting material (dried or fresh buds) can affect the terpenoid content as well. Superfluid extraction (SFE) using liquid carbon dioxide is an emerging technique that allows an extract artist to reintroduce native terpenoids from the bud back into the extract. This re-enrichment gives a higher than average terpenoid content than a typical butane extract.

Gorilla Jihad by Evolab: 10% terpenoids of total mass

This indica concentrate, with a lineage of Gorilla Glue #4 (Sour Dub x Chem Sis) x Lemon Jihad, was grown indoors in soil using organic based nutrients with Botanicare.

Star Tonic by LightSky Farms: 8.5% terpenoids of total mass

This extract took 5th Place in the CBD Concentrates category. With a Sativa lineage of Deathstar x Cannatonic, the starting material was grown indoors using a CO2 injection in a Promix soilless medium feed with organic nutrients, Pura Vida and Vegamatrix.

Blueberry Muffin by Evolab: 7.3% terpenoids of total mass

This sativa concentrate, with a lineage of Girl Scout Cookies x Blueberry, was grown indoors in soil using organic based nutrients with Botanicare.

Blue Star Muffin Killer by Evolab with Champions Cannabis: 6.5% terpenoids of total mass

This hybrid concentrate, with a lineage of Blue Star Killer x Blueberry Muffin, was grown indoors in soil using organic based nutrients with Botanicare.

The graph below shows the terpenoid content of all the concentrate entries in the Denver 2015 Cannabis Cup. The four labeled entries stand out amongst the rest with up to four times the amount of terpenes compared to the average sample.
