Copy of Defined- Terpenes

ter·pene

ˈtərpēn/

nounCHEMISTRY

plural noun: terpenes

any of a large group of volatile unsaturated hydrocarbons found in the essential oils of plants, especially conifers and citrus trees. They are based on a cyclic molecule having the formula C10H16. Terpenes are found commonly throughout the plant world and are often, as with marijuana, responsible for aroma. Terpenes act like serotonin receptors in the brain and increase dopamine activity- two of the primary reasons they are thought to enhance/alter the effects of marijuana on the system.

One of the advantages of CO2 processing is our ability to retain the full terpene profile from the original flower. 

Why Should Your Farm Use an Exclusively Toll Processor?

Quality of experience and customer service aside, there’s a big difference between working on the split with a mass-production company and hiring a craft-based contract processor to develop an oil just as unique as the flower you grow. When you work with Full Circle you know that only your flower goes into the machine and only your yield comes out. There’s no combining of flower in massive bins and enormous runs, no averaging of yields, and no two oils from different farms or flowers that look, taste, or feel the same. More than that, you won’t end up in direct competition with your own service provider. As a solely contract-basis processor Full Circle doesn’t sell our customer’s oils under our own name, doesn’t undercut them in production or packaging costs, doesn’t use them to reduce our own overhead or testing fees, and won’t saturate the very market we’re intended to be creating.
