It requires a great amount of skill and knowledge to add terpenes to your products, and it’s difficult to get the hang of it even with a trial-and-error method. You need to learn the basics to understand how to mix terpenes to maximize their effect. Here’s how you can do that.
How To Mix Terpenes?
Top-quality terpenes come in the form of oil. It depends on the kind of product that you want, and if you want an effective product, terpene mixing can be a complicated task.
It’s more difficult to mix terpenes with edibles that already have various ingredients, because the terpenes will have to take up a certain percentage in the product. In order to make terpenes soluble, they need to be mixed with an emulsifier, such as propylene glycol.
How Many Drops Of Terpenes Should Be Mixed?
It highly depends on the strength of the terpenes and the thickness of the oil. When you weigh one gram of water, it contains 20 drops. However, when you weigh terpenes, some could have 20 drops in 1gram, and some could have 20 drops in 2 grams. So, it’s essential to avoid measuring terpenes based on droplets. Terpenes should only be measured by weight or by volume.
What Is A Terpene Diluent?
A terpene diluent is used to dilute a solution. These can help in liquefying isolates and winterized extracts. Terpenes that need diluents are known as low-quality terpenes.
Terpene Mixing Calculator
You can mix terpenes in your food or beverage easily with only a few calculations.
You need to keep in check:
- The initial weight of your solution in grams
- The amount of terpenes you want to mix into the solution
- The amount of diluents you want to mix into the solution
Then you can add the terpenes via the following calculation.
- Assume that your solution’s weight (W) is 100 grams
- The percentage of terpenes (T) you want to mix is 2.5%
- You can plug in the values in the following equation to find out the weight of the terpenes you need to add.
- T (W) + 0.1 T (0.01 W) = an estimated number of grams of terpenes
So, your end product will be the initial weight plus the weight of the estimated number of grams of terpenes.
Some terpenes are measured in terms of volume when you get them in bulk quantities. You can measure them in milliliters. So, you can weigh the terpenes on a weighing scale for a more accurate measure because converting milliliters into grams doesn’t take into account the densities of the substance.
Your end product can contain percentages between 2 to 5% to have the right amount of flavor and smell.
