Hosting your own personal blind terpene tasting is not only a fun and engaging way to enjoy cannabis, but it also allows you to learn more about the complexities of the plant and how different terpenes can impact the overall experience.

Terpenes are organic compounds found in many plants, including cannabis, that give them their unique flavors and aromas. In cannabis, terpenes also play a crucial role in the effects of the plant, working in conjunction with cannabinoids like THC and CBD to create a more nuanced experience. By conducting a blind terpene tasting, you can hone your skills in identifying and appreciating the different terpenes present in the plant.

To get started, you’ll need to gather some cannabis flowers or concentrates with prominent terpenes. You can find a variety of strains at your local dispensary or online. Just be sure to select products that have been tested for terpenes and come with a label that lists the most predominant ones.

Once you have your products, set up a blind tasting by labeling them with numbers or letters and hiding the labels from sight. To enhance the experience, you can also use tools like the original terpene flashcards or a terpene flavor wheel chart to help identify the different aromas and flavors present in each sample.

When it’s time to taste, take a moment to smell each product and note any distinct aromas that stand out. Then, take a small hit or dab and let the terpenes work their magic. Pay attention to the taste and effects, taking notes on each sample’s overall experience.

After tasting each product, reveal the labels and compare your notes to the terpene list on the label. You may be surprised at how accurate your guesses were or how much you learned about different terpenes and how they impact the cannabis experience.

Hosting a personal blind terpene tasting is not only a fun way to enjoy cannabis but also a valuable learning experience. By focusing on terpenes, you can develop a deeper understanding and appreciation of the plant, its complexities, and the different effects it can produce.

So, gather your favorite cannabis products, invite some friends, and let the blind terpene tasting begin. It’s sure to be a memorable and educational experience for all involved.

That’s why I’m super excited to be the lead organizer behind the Terpene Tournament happening on June 6th from 6-9 pm at Ohana Cannabis in Emeryville, CA. The event is a unique opportunity to celebrate the diversity of the cannabis plant and educate attendees about the importance of terpenes. It’s fantastic to see the event supporting a medical cannabis benefit that prioritizes equity, legacy, and compassion, and I’m proud to be a part of it.

During the Terpene Tournament, participants will have the opportunity to participate in a blind terpene tasting and savor some of the finest cannabis available. It’s sure to be an unforgettable sensory journey for all those who attend and a chance to connect with like-minded individuals who share a passion for the plant.

In addition to the blind terpene tasting, there will be other exciting activities and educational opportunities throughout the evening. Guests can explore the different booths, chat with vendors and experts, and learn more about the benefits of cannabis for medical and recreational use.

The Terpene Tournament is more than just a cannabis event. It’s an opportunity to come together as a community, celebrate the plant, and support a worthy cause. By attending the event, participants are not only enjoying a unique and fun experience but also helping to raise funds for medical cannabis patients in need.
