For many, cannabis concentrates represent the elite of cannabis products. One of the primary cannabis extracts that adhere to that reputation is none other than terp sauce.
In many circles, when it comes to extracts, terp sauce is known as the creme of the crop, or the very best of the best.
It possesses a full spectrum of compounds you would naturally find in the cannabis plant and accentuates the good aspects of them.
Today, we are breaking down the beautiful benefits of terp sauce, what it is, and how it’s made.

What is Terp Sauce?
Terp Sauce is a type of High Terpene Full Spectrum Extract or HTFSE for short.
The reason why it is considered a High Terpene Full Spectrum Extract is because it carries a full range of cannabinoids and terpenes that you find naturally in the cannabis plant.
The only difference here is that Terp Sauce removes many unwanted bulk and lipids, resulting in a much more refined and pure product that offers users an enhanced high along with the natural flavours and aroma of your favourite strain of bodacious bud.
By nature, any product classified as a High Terpene Full Spectrum Extract (HTFSE) is by default considered a premium product, mainly due to the complicated extraction process as well as the specialized equipment and training needed to make HTFSEs.
That said, terp sauce will cost a decent amount of cash if you’re looking to try it out. It’s priced higher than other cannabis extracts but offers a complete package with little to no downside, you know, minus the potentially higher price tag.
Terp sauce also comes in various consistencies and textures depending on the purity and concentration of the terpenes and cannabinoids.
This gives the cannabis concentrate a balanced portfolio of flavour, aroma, and potency, setting the stage for an all-around righteous experience.
Alternatively, you can also purchase terp sauce alongside THCA crystals for an increase in THC content.
What Makes Terp Sauce so Special?
As you could guess by its name, terp sauce is a cannabis extract that is enhanced thanks to the inclusion of terpenes.
Terpenes are compounds found in a variety of different living organisms and plants found throughout nature. They also can be found in cannabis trichomes.
Terpenes are commonly known to give plants and animals their signature scents and flavours.
For example, pinene, a common terpene found in cannabis, is also an aromatic compound found in pine trees, giving them their fresh and earthy pine scent. Similarly, limonene, the citrus terpene also found in certain strains of cannabis, is named due to its lemony scent to many of the citrus fruits we all love like lemon and lime.
Despite all of the wonderful benefits that terpenes bring to the table, scent and flavour are not the only things they lend to terp sauce.
One of the great benefits of smoking raw weed is that you get to experience the synergy of the naturally occurring compounds in the plant. This feature is something that extracts like THCA Diamonds lack due to their focus on strictly preserving THC rather than a full-spectrum of compounds.
With a full-spectrum extract like terp sauce, users can experience the benefits of the Entourage effect, the additional advantage of consuming cannabinoids alongside terpenes, allowing them to work synergistically with one another to produce unique effects.
The addition of terpenes won’t necessarily override THC’s effects in your weed, but having a high terpene content will allow your high to be enhanced and manipulated in different ways.
Terpenes can basically modify and improve different aspects of the high, which is partially why different strains of cannabis tend to produce various effects.
All in all, terp sauce is one of the most unique cannabis extracts due to its high terpene and cannabinoid content. It gives users the full essence of the cannabis plant without any additional unnecessary compounds or lipids.
Unlike many other extracts, terp sauce maintains the full integrity of the natural chemical composition of the cannabis plant while removing the bad stuff, leaving behind an incredibly pure yet natural concentrate.
How is it Made?
Terp sauce is made through Butane Hash Oil (BHO) extraction methods and by actively ageing live resin.
One of the critical features of terp sauce is its inclusion of a full spectrum of cannabinoids and terpenes. In this way, the input ingredients used in creating it have a large role in determining its quality.
This feature is also what sets it apart from other concentrates, such as shatter. It is also why live resin is used to create terp sauce rather than cured bud.
Live resin is made using flash-frozen fresh cannabis, resulting in capturing the plant’s exact chemical balance before it was frozen. This process allows producers to create a product closest to its original form.
From here comes an incredibly important step where producers separate the liquid from the crystals. This stage is incredibly important and requires concentration and expertise to ensure no remaining butane in the final product.
The products are then aged to allow enough time for the cannabinoids to separate from the terpenes. This time is also when terp sauce separates from THCA, typically used to create THC Diamonds.
The process results in the creation of two concentrates, THCA diamonds and terp sauce.
Terp Sauce – Where Flavour and Potency Meet
As the de facto king of cannabis concentrates, terp sauce gives cannabis enthusiasts a refined version of the best aspects of their favourite herb.
Terp sauce is ideal for those looking to enjoy the righteous benefits, potency, and convenience of a cannabis concentrate without missing out on the diverse and complex delicious flavours that other products lack.
That said, terp sauce is a potent cannabis concentrate, providing users with a cannabinoid content that can double the potency of some of the best harvests of weed.
For the novice smokers reading, we advise you to either approach terp sauce with caution or gain some experience before experimenting with it.
As always, we recommend purchasing your products from a trusted dispensary to minimize the risk of faulty products.
As always, enjoy!
