What is Terpe Sauce?
Terp sauce is a cannabis extract eaten, drank as a tea, or used in cooking. It can also be infused into a beverage like wine or beer.
Terpe Sauce Extraction
Terpenes and cannabinoids can be extracted using any extraction method; they are not exclusive to terp sauce. Terpenes can also be extracted using other methods like butane extraction, CO2 extraction, and others.
Making terp sauce is essentially the same for all alcohol-based extracts, regardless of the type of alcohol used. The cannabis plant is ground up into a fine powder, and the oil or wax is then extracted from the plant material. Then the oil is separated from the plant wax. The terpenes and the cannabinoids are then pressed out of the extracted oil or wax.

There are many reasons why people use terpenes and cannabinoids, like CBD & THC, as an ingredient in their recipes or infuse them into what they eat or drink.
