About Cannabis Derived Terpenes
Cannabis-derived terpenes, often abbreviated as “CDTs”, are by definition terpenes that come from the cannabis plant. However, within the cannabis industry, the term “cannabis-derived terpenes” has come to mean the terpenes, flavonoids, and all the other organic compounds that give cannabis its distinctive smells and tastes. Actual terpenes may make up as little as 30% of the actual percentage of compounds in CDTs, but what you are purchasing is 100% derived from cannabis.
Because terpenes are solvents and are typically harsh in high concentrations, the reduced percentage of actual terpene content in CDTs tends to make CDTs much smoother compared to other pure, isolated terpene options in equal volumes.
CDTs tend to have a more potent smell and also a wider variety of compounds and terpenes in them than botanical-derived terpenes. This is typically better for those looking for a more well-rounded “entourage effect”.

Extraction Method of CDT’s
These Cannabis-derived terpenes are hydrocarbon extracted and then distilled. Hydrocarbon extraction and distillation gives these terpenes an unbelievably clean smell while especially protecting top notes, like those associated with bright floral, fruits, and other foods-based aromas.
Hydrocarbon extraction uses fresh, never frozen cannabis material. Terpenes are fractionally separated from the initial hydrocarbon extraction. The terpenes are then pieced back together. This method produces a sweeter-tasting terpene that can really bring out the fruit and food-type flavors within the plant.
However, some terpenes use a proprietary extraction method that may result in flavors typically described as an earthier/more herbal taste that is truer to the flower. In this method, terpenes are taken directly from the material and used “as is” versus being fractionally separated and pieced back together.
Using Cannabis-Derived Terpenes
3Chi’s CDT’s are most often used in vape, dab, and tincture products created at home.
Vape and dab products typically use 1-5% cannabis-derived terpenes.
Tinctures typically use 0.01-0.5% terpenes.
