What do herbs, spices, wine and cannabis have in common?

Starts with a "T"...

You guessed right. Terpenes.

Terpenes are the organic compounds that give your favorite fruits, vegetables, herbs and spices their distinct aromas. Now if terpenes can be found in fruit and herbs then grapes must have terpenes and hemp and marijuana should too, yes?

Yes. Terpenes are found in the skin and juice of the grape, and the amount of terpenes can vary due to the varietal, soil conditions, etc. Terpenes are also among the parts that give cannabis strains their distinct aromas and can affect the intensity you experience from consumption.

What terpenes can be found in ginger? Zingiberene (try saying that 3x fast). Zingiberene alongside other amino acids, raw fiber, vitamins and minerals is what gives ginger its healing and comforting properties. Imagine the magic that happens when you pair the terpene profiles of say a bottle of your favorite SHOKi or wine with a hearty salad or a thoughtfully seasoned chicken dish? The possibilities are endless when it comes to harmonizing your herbs with cannabis infused-products.

Try Chicken Piccata with a SHOKi Kiss cocktail (maybe even a Lemon Haze pre-roll after dessert) for a lovely flavor-balanced treat your taste buds will thank you for.
