Cannabis aromas for use in beverages
Our Cannabis aromas are complex flavorings created to add smell and flavor to food products, with a faithful aroma of each cannabis strain.
For the elaboration of our flavorings we use just raw materials of botanical origin of the best quality, from crops free of transgenic (NO GMO), without pesticides and without polluting agents.
Cali Terpenes aromas are 100% pure, they do not contain any solvent or additive.
As they does not come from cannabis, they don’t contain cannabinoids (THC, CBD, CBG…)
These aromas are specially formulated for all types of beverages such as spirits, juices, … as well as ice lollies, because they have greater solubility in water than the food aromas.
All our aromas are food grade and are made, packaged and labeled under current food regulations in the European Union.
Recommendation for use
Our cannabis aromas (terpene profiles) are 100% pure. Handle them with caution. Our product can’t be consumed without being diluted (except for tasting in cold vaporizers, in which you should use pure).
Once diluted in the base that you have chosen, and in the right proportion, they are totally safe and easily add flavor and aroma to any product.
1ml of terpenes = 40 drops (0,025ml per drop of 1ml dropper), 1 drop of terpenes represents approximately 0.25% in 10ml of base:
1 drop in 10ml = 0.25%
2 drops in 10ml = 0.50%
4 drops in 10ml = 1%
8 drops in 10ml = 2 %
12 drops in 10ml = 3%
*We always recommend testing from less to greater quantity, because our terpenes provide an intense flavor and aroma easily.
The right proportion of our terpenes (or cannabis aroma) in the food and beverage industry is much lower than that used in e-liquids or cannabis products.
This amount always will depend on the base from which you will start and from the moment in which the application takes place.
We always recommend use during cold processes and to trying to avoid the strong pressure changes (ex. Vacuum); in this way the terpenes will not evaporate and they will perfectly integrate in your recipe.
Here some examples of the proportions suggested for food & drinks:
- Ice cream: 0,025ml aprox of terpenes to 0,1ml for 1 kg
- Beer: 1ml aprox of terpenes for 3 L
- Sparkling water: 1 or 2 drops of terpenes for 1 L
- Oils: 1ml aprox of terpenes for 3 L
- Honey: 1ml aprox of terpenes for 1kg or 2kg
The packaging of our cannabis aromas was created to avoid any possible evaporation or contamination. The phial is equipped with a safety stopper, anti-leakage disk and screw cap. Make sure to close them all after use.
Terpenes are volatile elements, we always recommend keeping them cold in the fridge (44 degrees F aprox), in this way you will avoid possible evaporation.
Remember that while using our aroma the temperature should not exceed 140ºC to avoid the evaporation of most volatile terpenes.
Always keep our aromas in their original packaging because the dark glass used is UV rays prod and is perfect for the conservation of thermo or photosensitive products; in this way you can avoid color changes, losses or contamination, terpenes are corrosive and can damage other materials such plastic.
