Terpenes are organic compounds responsible for the distinct smells and flavors found in various plant species, including cannabis. Analyzing the terpene profile allows researchers, growers, and manufacturers to understand the chemical composition of a particular strain or product, leading to better quality control and informed decision-making.

By examining the terpene profile, one can determine the presence and concentration of different terpenes within a sample. This information helps identify specific strains or cultivars based on their unique aroma profiles.

Our experts test for 23 terpene/terpenoid compounds using a liquid injection gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS).

Terpenes/terpenoids measured:

α-Pinene, Camphene, β-Myrcene, β-Pinene, 3-Carene, α-Terpinene, cis-Ocimene, Limonene, trans-Ocimene, Eucalyptol, gamma-Terpinene, Terpinolene, Linalool, Isopulegol, Geraniol, Caryophyllene, p-Cymene, α-Humulene, cis-Nerolidol, trans-Nerolidol, Guaiol, Caryophyllene oxide, and α-Bisabolol
