The publication presents groundbreaking insights into the complex world of cannabis aromatics, introducing new classes of compounds that literally shape the aroma profiles for the cannabis strains, and what the discovery means for the industry and consumers alike.
TUSTIN, Calif., Oct. 30, 2023 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- In an industry-first reveal, Abstrax, the leader in botanical flavor technology, has released its latest white paper, "The Science of Exotic I: The Dawn of Flavorants". The groundbreaking white paper sheds new light on the complex world of cannabis aromatics, concentrating on the little-acknowledged fact that there's much more to cannabis aromas and flavors than just terpenes.
"In 'The Science of Exotic I: The Dawn of Flavorants', we've delved deeper than ever into the olfactory essence of cannabis. This isn't just about terpenes anymore ? it's about a richer, more intricate aromatic story," said Max Koby, Abstrax Co-Founder and President. "We believe this paper will serve as a cornerstone in cannabis education and research for years to come."
The Abstrax team, through its rigorous research, has discovered the following:
Additionally, the paper highlights that the total aroma percentage mentioned on most packaging does not serve as an accurate indication of a product's "exotic" or "loud" nature. This packaging information generally excludes significant flavorants such as skatole and cannasulfur compounds, which play a crucial role in a product's overall aromatic profile and intensity.
"Cannabis education is essential in reshaping our understanding of the cannabis plant. The transition from singularly emphasizing terpenes to acknowledging the multitude of factors shaping diverse cannabis aromas not only deepens our appreciation for the plant's complexities but also enhances our ability to enjoy and utilize it effectively," said Boris Shcharansky, Vice President, Cannabis Advisory at Weedmaps. "We are excited to share these insights with our Weedmaps community, fostering a collective journey toward greater understanding and enjoyment of cannabis."
With the release of the white paper, Abstrax has once again demonstrated its commitment to advancing understanding and knowledge in the cannabis industry.
