Drew: Hey what's up everyone. This is Drew, owner of Connoisseur Concentrates, and I
am back for another fun Terpene Profile Breakdown Video. I’ve been looking forward to
this one. I am joined today as usual by my Chief Lab Technician; Professor Matsumoto (What What!), and my Media Director; Audrey (Hi guys). We're going to do one of my favorites today, our terpene profile: The Hippie Crippler. Now, we always do the well-known brands because everybody wants them, but once in a while I pick something that I personally like. I heard about this strain so I sought it out. It took me forever to find and I finally found it, so I made it. It's an interesting strain, and remember, it's called The Hippie Crippler. Its lineage is sativa, and since everybody asked me for sativas, it’s one of the reasons I made this blend. Its parent lineage is the Blue Satellite and an AK-47. First thing you'll notice about this is that it's a clear liquid and that’s because it’s in our Organic line of terpenes. Meaning that it’s created from all organic terpene profiles, or, excuse me, all organic terpenes. Nothing synthetic, nothing artificial. And the first thing you're going to want to do is smell it. So, I'm going to pop this open see what it smells like.
Oddly enough, it has a mild smell of pine, and honestly smells like a really clean Pine-Sol. Strict contrast to most hippies, you're going to get a lot of this clean pine throughout the whole hit. You’re gonna get a lot of this throughout so just sit back, relax, and enjoy it. What I tell everyone is never judge a book by its cover, and never buy terpenes based on what they smell like. This blend is made up of 20 or so different terpenes, and what you're going to smell is only the terpenes that evaporate off at room temperature. Those few terpenes that evaporate off at room temperature, form together, and create a smell different than the taste. So, don't buy things based on what they smell like. I'm going to let Audrey explain this a little bit better.
Audrey: Right, so when you're purchasing your terpenes, the most important thing to keep in mind, like Drew was saying, is that the pen almost never tastes exactly like what the bottle smells like. A great example of this is perfume. You spray it in the air, spritz it on yourself, smells great! Try spraying that in your mouth, it's going to be awful.
Drew: That's right.
Audrey: You need to know this when you're buying your terpenes, because at the end of the day your client and your customers are going to be tasting your pens, not smelling your bottle. This is what makes our product better. We spend hours formulating these terpenes and these lines for that end-user and the end-taste.
Drew: I don't create blends based on what the bottle smells like, it's just the wrong way to do it. We're not making perfumes and colognes. And even though this does smell bad, and it's probably something you would not purchase right off the shelf, it tastes good because that's how we created it. I'm going to let Cam explain to you how it actually tastes.
Cameron: I've been smoking on The Hippie Crippler throughout this video, so I'm just going to jump right into it. Just like a hippie, there’s a pungenty earth with a sweet floral aftertaste. Check out festivals if you don’t believe us! I would say The Hippie Crippler is in the category of a strong cannabis flavor. Meaning that that cannabis taste is going to be at the forefront of that palette, and at the end you're going to get that mix of piney flavor notes.
Drew: It is an excellent taste, it’s a good tasting pen, that's why we created it and it’s why we're excited about it. True to its form, it smells just like the strain. So, one of the ways that we break down the profile is by determining whether it is a blended profile or a separated profile. First thing you're going to notice about a blended profile is that all the flavors combine together. When you take an inhale and when you exhale it's the same thing throughout. Separated flavors are different, first you smell earth, and then you’ll smell gassy, after smelling floral. You smell different parts throughout the hit. Where do we fall in The Hippie Crippler?
Cameron: I would categorize The Hippie Crippler as a separated profile. Basically meaning that you're going to be tasting that earth, with a pungenty-ness in the middle, then that sweet floral at the end.
Drew: Definitely, so one of the other ways that we break the profiles down is, like Cam said, you've got a specific cannabis level. Just asking yourself, how much does this strain taste like weed? That's what determines this cannabis level, like is it a medium?
Drew: A heavy? Okay, so it tastes of heavy cannabis, but then you have the profile strength as well. Which is how strong does this profile taste compared to a different profile. Audrey?
Audrey: Right, so every profile varies on how strong the actual flavor is. The Hippie Crippler is in our medium to high, or strong, strength profiles. We have designed this terpene profile to be an enhancing agent rather than a masking agent. Meaning that when you're smoking it up, and you're exhaling, that cannabis aroma is really going to be enhanced with the terpene profile notes, rather than completely masked, like it would be with Bubblegum or Banana.
