Invented by a psychophysiologist,
the Terpz™ inhalation system is the world's first, convenient
and elegant, olfactory-centered method for whole plant delivery. The unique,
two-chambered, handcrafted glass allows for unheated, bioactive
terpenes to be inhaled nasally (without destroying them with heat), along
with orally inhaled, heated bioactive constituents.
From flowers to fruit, terpenes
are the volatile molecules in herbal medicine and food that account for
each plant's unique aroma and character.
In cannabis, for example,
they combine with other molecules in the plant to account for the wide
variety of medicinal, health, creative, and recreational effects that people
report experiencing from its consumption.
Terpenes contribute to the
"entourage effect" that is reported from the whole cannabis plant experience.
