The Abstrax Terpene Process
The journey of crafting perfect terpene profiles at Abstrax starts with a discerning selection of cultivars. They prioritize unique and flavorful cultivars over trendy ones, understanding that the consumer’s repeat purchase hinges on this crucial choice. The process then unfolds through advanced analysis, outpacing the industry norm by identifying over 500 compounds in cannabis compared to the usual 30-40. This approach establishes a new standard in authenticity and precision.
Abstrax’s philosophy centers around the sensory impact of terpenes, focusing on aroma and taste rather than just purity percentages. This guides their formulation process, where expert chemists use advanced analytical data to recreate authentic terpene profiles. Each product, from their Native Series to Cloudburst, resonates with the essence of the original plant, crafted entirely in-house.
“Our mission at Abstrax is to demystify the flavors and fragrances of cannabis and provide knowledge that not only enhances the consumer experience but also opens new avenues for product development.”
– Max Koby, CEO & Co-Founder of Abstrax
The Science of Exotic Cannabis
In their groundbreaking series, “The Science of Exotic Cannabis,” Abstrax delves into the evolving aroma of cannabis, identifying unique compounds that define the scent profiles of exotic strains. The first part of the series, “The Science of Exotic I: The Dawn of Flavorants,” reexamines terpenes and their role in scent generation from chemical and sensory perspectives, questioning the effectiveness of terpene profiles in discerning aromas.

“The discovery of these compounds will play a crucial role in validating cannabis’ authenticity and accurately classifying cannabis varieties in the future. It also enables Abstrax to create the most flavorful and authentic cannabis flavors utilizing these previously undiscovered cannabis compounds. This research is important for consumers, researchers, brands, cultivators, labs, regulators, and everyone in between.”
– Max Koby, CEO & Co-Founder of Abstrax
The second paper, “The Science of Exotic II: The Curious Case of Chem,” explores the chemistry behind distinctive aromatic characteristics, particularly the funky, chemical, and savory notes found in strains like GMO and Chemdawg. It spotlights pivotal compounds such as Indole and Skatole, linking them to other naturally occurring compounds and their role in psychedelics. Learn More
“This new chemistry will open the doors for exciting new avenues of research and classification schemes that are grounded in the very thing that makes so many cannabis varieties unique – their aroma. While this research may answer many questions, it opens just as many new possibilities for this incredible plant.”
– Kevin Koby, Chief Science Officer at Abstrax
These white papers provide an in-depth understanding of the aromatic compounds in cannabis, allowing Abstrax to create terpene blends that authentically capture the plant’s natural essence, enhancing the consumer’s sensory experience.
“Cannabis is used medically for many health ailments, but there are so many questions remaining as to how it works and if we can enhance those properties by creating new varieties with specific chemistries. We hope our work will open new avenues of research for others to better understand this unique plant and harness its full therapeutic potential.”

Vape-Jet’s Mission of Terpene Preservation
Following the impactful research and product development by Abstrax, it’s essential to consider how the consumer experiences these advancements in the final product. This is where Vape-Jet steps in, with its cutting-edge filling machines designed to maintain the integrity and quality of cannabis oils, especially those rich in Abstrax’s terpenes.
Vape-Jet’s technology is engineered to protect the delicate balance of these oils. Our fully-automatic and semi-automatic filling machines feature three independently controllable heat zones, ensuring that they operate at the lowest possible temperatures. This meticulous temperature control is crucial for preserving the intricate flavors and aromas of the terpenes, preventing any thermal degradation.
Each of our filling machines includes a nitrogen pressurized fluid path that plays a vital role in safeguarding the quality of even the thickest oils, including live resin and rosin. The nitrogen pressure minimizes oxidation and evaporation, ensuring your vapes are filled without compromising the quality of cannabis concentrates.”
The collaboration between Abstrax’s terpene expertise and Vape-Jet’s technological innovation creates a perfect synergy. This partnership ensures that the nuanced qualities of the terpenes are not just created with scientific precision but are also delivered to the consumer in their most pristine form.
“Vape-Jet dispensing technology was engineered for mild operating conditions from the beginning. This newfound understanding from Abstrax about the delicate and nuanced chemical composition of cannabis highlights the benefits our filling systems can provide for consumers who seek true-to-strain vaporizer alternatives for their favorite flowers.”
– Devon Reid, Chief Science Officer and Co-Founder of Vape-Jet
