OGs + Gas: Classification of Cannabis by THC and Terpenes
The OGs and Gas Class includes popular hybrid strains like OG Kush, Chemdawg, Sour Diesel and Gorilla Glue. These cultivars always have a myrcene heavy terpene profile, typically backed by caryophyllene and limonene. - Written by Randy Villarba
As more research is conducted, the significance of terpene profiles in cannabis is surpassing that of THC levels in identifying the actual effects concealed within the plant. Terpenes are essential oils that confer distinct tastes and fragrances to the cannabis plant, and they are believed to significantly influence its effects by interacting with the body's endocannabinoid system. By examining the terpene profile of a cannabis strain, one can obtain a more precise comprehension of its potential effects and health advantages.
Gaining knowledge of a cannabis plant's terpene profiles offers more insights about the strain than by simply assessing its THC levels. This new comprehension is revolutionizing how cultivars are classified, moving beyond the conventional indica and sativa categorizations. The Emerald Cup Cannabis Classification System, which utilizes PhytoFacts® and SC Labs, is at the forefront of the dialogue on what distinguishes "excellence" in cannabis goods and extracts. This alliance between The Emerald Cup, SC Labs, and NAPRO Research seeks to transform the collective perception of terpenes as a pivotal measure in ascertaining quality.
The primary objective is to bring to the forefront the potential importance of these fragile and unstable terpenes, and their involvement in producing and amplifying the entourage effect. This novel classification system strives to redefine the correlation between cannabinoid and terpene ratios. It represents a movement to revolutionize our understanding of cannabis, extending beyond measuring THC levels. Its goal is to delve deeper into the connection between terpenes, flavors, aromas, and how they might influence the effects of cannabis.
OGs + Gas Class
The OGs and Gas Class have similar terpene profiles. This class includes popular hybrid strains like OG Kush, Chemdawg, Sour Diesel and Gorilla Glue. These cultivars always have a myrcene heavy terpene profile, typically backed by caryophyllene and limonene.
Myrcene is recognized for its earthy, fruity, gassy and herbaceous taste, frequently likened to that of cloves. Caryophyllene is distinguished by its spicy, peppery, and sweet taste with floral traces and occasional hints of cinnamon. Limonene is known for its citrusy and lemon-like flavor and aroma, and is similar to the terpenes found in the rinds of citrus fruits such as lemons, limes, and oranges.
Cannabis consumers have reported to receive initially uplifting and stimulating effects. These effects are also purported to be calming and relaxing. Many cannabis consumers also have reported cultivars with these terpene profiles to be an excellent post workout regimine for recovery.
