"This exploratory research has led the company to discover over 400 terpenes and aroma compounds native to cannabis and to source hundreds of natural ingredients to offer its clients for use in their formulations."
IRVINE, Calif. (PRWEB) March 30, 2020
ABSTRAX, a leader in the study and production of cannabis and botanical terpenes, announces that it has innovated the largest and purest all-natural terpene catalog of cannabis aroma compounds on the market today. The company’s extensive catalog of terpene isolates are used as functional flavorings and aromas in a wide variety of applications including topicals, beer, food, beverages, alcohol, health and wellness products and much more. Notably, they are all-natural, botanically-derived, organic compliant, steam distilled, solvent-less, GMO-free, filler-free, food-grade and also natively found in cannabis.
ABSTRAX has developed the most advanced analytical research lab specifically designed for studying botanicals and strain specific terpene and aroma profiles and has discovered a hidden world of cannabis terpenes. This type of exploratory research has led the company to discover over 400 terpenes and aroma compounds native to cannabis and to source hundreds of natural ingredients to offer its clients for use in their formulations.
“Based on our research, we then go through great lengths scouring the world for the purest, botanically-derived and most consistent sources of terpene isolates available,” says TJ Martin, Director of Research and Development for ABSTRAX. “Not all terpene isolates are created equal, many have varying consistencies and don’t have pure, clean sources that we in the cannabis industry so desperately need.”
ABSTRAX has established the best practices in the industry by implementing a rigorous quality management system to meet the highest cannabis testing requirements. In accordance with their ISO9001:2015 certification, the company analyzes all ingredients to ensure they meet strict quality and purity standards. When it comes across a terpene that doesn’t meet its standards, it’s PhD chemist staff and award-winning manufacturing team further distill the terpene, and analyze it using Gas Chromatography, until it meets the purity standards created for every ingredient.
ABSTRAX’s molecular distillation process is critical in that it purifies terpene isolates to remove all targeted oils, aromatic compounds, and impurities. All ABSTRAX terpene isolates and blends include a Certificate of Analysis, created using the company’s analytical equipment that tests for residual solvents and purity. It also tests for pesticides and heavy metals on new batches to ensure strict compliance to the highest cannabis testing requirements.
“This is why we have been able to pass all cannabis compliance testing panels, which are much stricter than food grade standards,” says Martin. “In fact, some analytical labs have referred brands to us who have failed compliance tests, so that we can assist them in improving their products.”
ABSTRAX then collects, packages, and properly stores the terpenes in light proof specialized containers in a temperature controlled environment to maintain freshness and keep them from UV degradation. All products have lot tracking and full traceability, from source to finished product.
The benefits of ABSTRAX’s molecular distillation process include:
- the finished isolates being completely solvent-less, filler-free, and incredibly pure;
- and the ultimate benefit is consistency and control over the ingredients that go into your products.
“When we source our terpenes, we run the same cannabis compliance tests that our customers are required to meet, not just food and beverage limits like most terpene companies do,” says Martin. “We want our customers to be able to use our terpenes with peace of mind knowing that our products would never cause a hiccup in their compliance testing.”
Leveraging its proven background in cannabis research, ABSTRAX is the leader in the research, development, and production of botanically-derived and cannabis-inspired terpenes that create unforgettable sensorial experiences. Headquartered in California, the company owns and operates a state-of-the-art type 7 licensed research and manufacturing lab where it’s award-winning product developers and PhD scientists leverage the most advanced strain analysis technology to extract and study aroma compounds via three-dimensional analysis, allowing for each and every compound within a plant to be named and studied. The company has partnered with many of the best cultivators in the industry to study their cannabis profiles and create the world's most advanced terpene formulations. As a result of its efforts, ABSTRAX offers the largest terpene catalogue of the most popular strains - botanically-derived terpene blends and isolates native to cannabis. These ingredients, also known as functional flavors and aromas, are used in vapes, concentrates, edibles, beer, essential oils, fragrances, cosmetics, topicals, tinctures, alcohol, food and beverage, personal care, and more. The company works with internationally recognized brands and provides unparalleled cannabis research, innovation, and custom formulations to create products that engage and thrill consumers. ABSTRAX also devotes significant resources to developing the highest terpene standards and best practices in the industry. The company has developed a robust quality management system including Gas Chromatography analysis and molecular distillation of natural ingredients to achieve the highest purity standards. Investigating and ensuring that ingredients used in its own products, and products within its industry, are safe for consumption. The terpene industry is a rapidly growing segment of the global flavor and fragrance market, which is expected to grow to $35 billion by 2024. This market segment includes cannabis, CBD, skincare, cosmetics, health and wellness, food and beverage industries. For more information, visit AbstraxTech.com.
