Drew: Hey what's up this is Drew, owner of Connoisseur Concentrates. We're back to do another Terpene Profile Breakdown video. As usual I am joined by my Chief Lab Technician; Professor Matsumoto (Wassup), my Media Director; Audrey (Hi), and today we're going to be doing a profile breakdown video on the Sour Diesel. The Sour Diesel is the second terpene profile that I created as a company. Early in the industry, and the creation of terpenes for labor pens, this was the second one that came through, it's really good. It's not as complex as our newer profiles, but it's still a winner, it's still- it's still working hard and doing a good job, and we sell tons of this stuff, alright? So, Sour Diesel has a parent lineage from Chemdawg and Super Skunk.
And we happen to have a Super Skunk terpene profile as well. It's a sativa blend. And I don't know, I really like it, it's- it's, having said that, I've made some more diesel blends in our later generations. And I think the later diesel blends are far more complex, and superior than the Sour Diesel. I know that the Sour Diesel is one of our early blends. It's gonna be a simpler profile, without as many flavors, but it's still good. People do still like it, and people do still order it, so I would recommend- I'd recommend at least trying it. It's good. Okay so, one of the first things you're gonna notice about this strain is that it's clear, bottle of it right there.
That's because it is made from all organic terpenes. There is nothing synthetic, and nothing artificial in this
blend. One of the first things you're gonna do when you purchase the bottle, or you think about purchasing it, is you're gonna want to smell it, so I'm gonna let you smell this through me, ready?
So, it's very citrusy, and truthfully it tastes like- it tastes like
a lemonhead. Remember the candy Lemonheads? That's- that's what it smells like. It's got a very clear, crisp, vibrant smell, with the citrus- the citrus is predominant in it. Doesn't smell like weed. It smells a lot
like a lemon head, that's really, really what it smells like. But as I tell everybody; you should never really buy
terpenes based on what the bottle smells like, for a very simple reason. And if you want more go watch the video on why you shouldn't do that. I've done another video, we're trying to link to it. Terpenes are made, terpene blends like this, are made from usually 10 to 20 different terpenes. Not all them have the same evaporation temperatures. So, when you smell a bottle, you're smelling what few terpenes are evaporating off at room temperature, 70 degrees. It's not gonna give you an accurate profile if they were built correctly. You're gonna smell something different from those combinations then you're gonna taste in
the pen. And I'll let Audrey explain a little bit more about that.
Audrey: Yeah, right, so the most important thing to keep in mind here is; don't be a terpene rookie. We
have coined that term for people who smell the bottle, and taste the pen, and expect it to be exactly the same. It's not. That's what makes our product better. We've spent hours formulating these terpenes so that the end-user your client, will have that authentic taste, not the smell from your bottle at the counter.
Drew: True that. So, make sure that you're not a terp rookie and you need to only buy your terpenes based on what they taste like, because your customer will be tasting your pen. Your customer will never smell your terpene bottle. Luckily that's why the professor is here. He is gonna taste that pen for you already mixed up and tell you exactly what it tastes like, what your customers are gonna experience.
Cameron: As Drew said before; I made up a Sour Diesel pen right here, I’m gonna tell you exactly what it tastes like. I'm getting a certain fresh, crispness initially, followed by a light, pungent citrus note. It's very refreshing, wow.
Drew: It's cool. It is a good profile. Again like I said, it's one of our earlier profiles. I really think that if you were gonna use this, you should mix it with some of our other stuff. I think that you can create your own terpenes by taking some of our other blends and mixing our blends together. You can almost never
mess that up. This is a great ingredient, on something else. So one of the ways that we describe terpene profiles, are whether they're separated or blended. That means that; in a separated profile; you're first gonna taste maybe citrus, and then you taste earth, and then you taste something else at the end. In a
combined profile; you're gonna taste all those flavors together, all the way through the inhale and the exhale. Where does the Sour Diesel fall?
Cameron: I would categorize Sour Diesel as a separated profile, meaning that initially, you're gonna get that very crisp, clean flavor, followed by a pungent, citrus notes. And yeah, it's- it's really good. I failed to
mention this a little bit earlier, but Sour Diesel is categorized as a medium cannabis profile, meaning that the cannabis notes are gonna be right in line with that light, crisp, pungent, citrus.
Drew: So, the key- the level that you taste cannabis is different from how strong the profile is. There's a cannabis strength and a profile strength. Cannabis strength is; how much does it taste like weed. Profile strength is; how strong is this profile. You know, six drops of this profile versus another profile. Where does the strength of this profile lay?
Audrey: So this profile in particular, is categorized in our medium strength, which means it's not going to be too overpowering, but it's definitely gonna be there.
Drew: Definitely, enhancing? While I'm asking?
Audrey: Right, so another thing we categorize- use to categorize our terpenes; is whether or not they are a profile masking agent or an enhancing agent. Meaning that on that exhale, when you're smoking, it's the difference between it being enhanced with the cannabis aroma, or it being completely covered up like you
would with like Bubblegum or Fruity Pebbles.
Drew: Where does this one lie?
Audrey: And this one lies in our enhancement, which means those cannabis notes are just gonna be
laced throughout there, instead of covered.
Drew: Yeah I would definitely pick this up, try one of our sample packs. If you're interested in this go to www.Mr. Extractor. You can get sample packs, try it out, see if you like it.
