Drew: Hey what's up everybody this is Drew, owner of Connoisseur Concentrates. We are back to do another Terpene Profile Breakdown. Again, I am joined by Professor Matsumoto, my Chief Lab Technician (Hey what’s up), and my Media Director; Audrey (Hi). Today we are going to be doing a breakdown of the Zkittles strain. Spelled with a Z of course because it's not candy. Now the Zkittles strain is an award-winning strain that's won a lot of awards across the country. It is an indica dominant hybrid, and it is a cross between Grape Ape and Grapefruit. It's amazing that I remember all these things, I mean, it's my job. First thing you'll notice about this strain is that it’s clear. That’s because it’s in our Organic terpene profile category. This means all the ingredients in it are organic terpenes, there is nothing synthetic, nothing artificial. First thing you're going to do when you purchase this blend is smell the bottle. So, let me give you a breakdown of what this smells like.
Smells really sweet, just like Skittles to be honest with you. It's very mild, I swear it smells exactly like a bag of Skittles. When you pick this up you're going to know right off the bat that's what it smells like. Not everything always equates smell wise, but this one does. First thing you'll notice is that it has a mild sweet smell and mild citrus candy tones to it. I don't really smell any cannabis out of the bottle, but that's not relevant. I tell everybody this and I will tell you again: you are never supposed to buy your terpenes based on what the bottle smells like. Terpene profiles are made up of a whole bunch of different terpenes, and when you smell the bottle you're smelling just a few terpenes that evaporate out at room temperature. The rest are just sitting there not being smelled. It's the worst way to buy terpenes. Audrey's going to explain it to you.
Audrey: Right, so when you're purchasing your terpenes you must keep in mind that the pen almost never smells and tastes exactly like the bottle. You need to know this because your client, at the end of the day, is going to be tasting the pen, not smelling your bottle. This is why our product is better, we formulate these strains and these terpenes for the end result-and the end-user. Not somebody walking up to the counter and sniffing the cap.
Drew: So, make sure that you take it from a personal who designs terpenes for a living. You need to try it before you buy it. That should be your rule. Never buy it based on what it smells like. Luckily, Cam here is going to explain to you exactly what it tastes like and how it's different from the bottle.
Cameron: Yes, so I made up a pen of the Zkittles not too long ago, so I’m going to try it now. Interesting. I'm getting a mild sour citrus in the beginning that’s mixed in with a sweet blended up pine taste at the end. It kind of taste like a Grapefruit Romulan, but just a tad sweeter. I would say the Zkittles is categorized in the mild cannabis profile territory. You're going to get that initial candy-ness that you’d get from opening that sweet bag of Skittles, rather than smoking a joint.
Drew: So, you've got a sweet, mildly sour citrus with a piney aftertaste. It's one of my favorite flavors. One of the ways that we differentiate our terpene profiles is by determining whether it's a blended profile or a separated profile. Blended profiles take all those flavors, combine them into one, and you taste the same thing all the way through the inhale and the exhale. With separated profiles; first you'll taste the earth, then you taste the pine, followed by the sweet. Can you tell us where this one lies?
Cameron: For sure, I would say that the Zkittles is in the category of the very well blended cannabis terpene profile. Meaning that you're going to be able to taste that mild sour citrus and that piney sweet mixture from start to finish.
Drew: You had this listed as a mild-medium cannabis profile, is that correct?
Cameron: Yes, I did.
Drew: So, there's a difference between how much cannabis you taste in that flavor, and the overall strength of the entire flavor together. Audrey can explain that to you a little bit more.
Audrey: So, the overall strength of the cannabis flavor is going to be a medium. We designed this cannabis terpene profile to be an enhancing agent rather than a masking agent. So, during the exhale, when you're blowing it out, you're still going to smell that cannabis aroma and get those gassy tones. Rather than the cannabis smell being completely covered up, or masked, like they would be if you used like a Banana or Fruity Pebbles.
Drew: This is a unique flavor and I would definitely recommend it to any customer to try out. If you're interested in picking up some you can go to www.MrExtractor.com.
