Terpenes are compounds naturally produced by some plants such as cannabis and hops that are often precursors of larger biomolecules such as cannabinoids and essential oils. Most importantly in the cannabis industry, many terpenes carry a characteristic aroma that some customers use to make purchasing decisions. Experts at Smithers are continually developing and refining methods using techniques like gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) to test for 21 terpenes to meet the needs of a diverse client-base. From cannabis flower to pure terpene concentrates and mentholated topicals, it is becoming increasingly necessary to accurately detect and quantify a wide array of terpenes.
