Drew: Hey what's up everybody. This is Drew, owner of Connoisseur Concentrates, and we are back to do another Terpene Breakdown Video. I am here with my Chief Lab Technician; Professor Matsumoto (Hey what’s up), and my Media Director; Audrey (Hi). Today we are going to be breaking down our Snoop Dogg OG terpene profile. This is a really interesting profile for a bunch of different reasons. So the actual strain, the Snoop Dogg is 70% indica-hybrid. It's something that Snoop Dogg and his team developed, they put it out, it’s really famous, especially down in the Los Angeles area. I picked some up and I made a terpene profile from it. It’s an unofficial non-licensed terpene profile. But having said that, Snoop Dogg received the very first Mr. Extractor, you guys know that I made extraction machines? The very first Mr. Extractor ever sold was a custom Snoop Dogg model that @MySweetLeaf and I personally presented to Snoop Dogg in Aspen at the X-Games. So, we've got a little bit of history there and hopefully we can get this officially licensed and endorsed by Snoop Dogg, but that’s a thing for the future right, not too worried about it. So one of the interesting things about this strain is the way that it smells versus the way that it tastes, I'll get into that in a minute. The first thing you'll notice about this strain is that it is clear. It's clear because it falls under the Organic line of products. Meaning that it is all organic terpenes, there's nothing synthetic in it, there's nothing artificial in it, just pure terpene blends of a cannabis strain. One of the first things you're going to do when you pick this up in the store is you're going to smell it. So I'm going to give you a walk through of what this terpene bottle smells like. So, this has a very faint smell. When you smell terpenes, let’s say there’s 15 ingredients in here. What you're going to smell is whichever one of those ingredients evaporates off the most at room temperature right now. It's not going to give you an accurate profile of everything that's mixed in here interestingly enough, this one doesn’t smell like much of anything. It smells slightly gassy, very sweet, and a little tiny bit of earth. As I tell everyone always; you should never buy terpenes based on what the bottle smells like. That is a rookie mistake and I'm going to let Audrey explain to you why.
Audrey: Right, so when you're purchasing your terpenes it's important to keep in mind that the pen almost never tastes exactly like what the bottle smells like. You need to know this because at the end of the day, your client is going to be tasting the pen, not smelling your bottle. This is what makes our products better. We formulate these lines and these strains for the end-user and that end-taste, rather than walking up to the counter and smelling the bottle.
Drew: Yeah, we definitely need to teach this to the industry. I'll be honest with you; a lot of our terpenes don't smell good in the bottle because that's not how we make them. We make them to taste good in the pen and it's a completely different formulation. If you need to understand that, try spraying some cologne in the air, then try spraying it in your mouth, you'll understand the difference, okay? So, can you tell us what this pen actually tastes like versus what that bottle smells like?
Cameron: Well of course, just made up a pen and that Snoop Dog and you've been seeing me puff on it the entire video. So now I’m going to tell you exactly what it tastes like. Initially I was getting a bit of gassy. Initially a gassy first taste, with earthy notes thrown in there’s just a bit, light citrus, with a light spicy aftertaste.
Drew: Yeah that's totally different than the bottle.
Cameron: Mhmm, definitely. With that being said I'll categorize the Snoop Dogg OG as a very pungent cannabis profile. Meaning that it's literally just weed in your face.
Drew: Yea it's really crazy how taking a bottle like this that doesn't really smell like anything, taste like a strong profile that's gassy and pungent. That's just how it works, and that's something you would never experience if you walked up to a booth and you just smelled it. It's important that you try it before you buy it. One of the ways that we designate these terpene profiles is based on whether they're separated profiles or blended profiles. In a blended profile, you're going to take all the flavors, you’re gonna taste one combination of those through the inhale and the exhale. In a separated profile; first you're going to taste gassy, then you're going to taste some citrus, maybe some earth on the exhale, something like that, separate it. Can you give us a breakdown of what the actually tastes like?
Cameron: Of course, the Snoop Dogg OG is definitely a separated profile. Meaning you're going to get gassy, earthy, light citrus, a little bit of spice at the end there.
Drew: Yeah, it's very cool, it's a unique profile and I’m very happy to have created it. One of the other ways that we designate our profiles is based on the strength of the profile, and whether it is an enhancing agent or a masking agent for your extracts. Audrey can you break that down?
Audrey: Right, so we categorize Snoop Dogg OG in our medium strength profiles. We designed this terpene profile to be an enhancing agent, rather than a masking agent. Meaning when you're smoking on it, on that exhale, you’re going to smell like that cannabis aroma still. Rather than it being masked like it would with a Banana or Bubble Gum.
