What Is A Cannabis Concentrate?
Cannabis concentrates are potent, refined forms of the parts of the marijuana plant that produce psychological or physical effects.
The solvent used to make concentrates in the BHO family is butane. This is the most common type of concentrate to come across, however PHO methods also produce similar results.
The resulting concentrates go by descriptive names like shatter, budder, or honey oil. The consistency of each varies from almost candy like to waxy to a viscous liquid. These are generally the concentrates people are talking about when they refer to dabs or dabbing.
What Is Terp Juice?
The ‘terp’ in terp juice stands for terpene. Terpenes are compounds in cannabis resin unique to each particular strain. Terpenes affect the smell and taste of the strain as well as the THC potency.
The way some terpenes interact with the brain helps the uptake of THC and therefore enhances the high. Science is still studying the synergistic effects of terpenes and THC but it’s intriguing.
The benefits may include medicinal effects that help us understand how cannabis heals.
Terp juice, by extension, is a concentrate with lots of terpenes. It is prized as flavorful cannabis experience that involves more of your senses.

How Is Terp Juice Made?
Terp juice itself is in the BHO family but with slightly different materials. Fresh cut or flash frozen flower is used to make terp juice in order to draw out those terps before they start degrading. This is a little similar to trying to drink fresh IPAs for the full hop flavor.
Both freezing and using fresh cuttings preserve the integrity of the valuable terpenes and create a flavor packed smoking or vaping experience.
What’s The Best Way To Use Terp Juice?
Consume terp juice the same way you would any BHO concentrate. You can dab some with a dab rig or use it in a compatible vaporizer.
Some people prefer to add a little to their bowl or joint to enhance the effect. You could call that cannabis two ways.
