The Cannabis Company has just released what is claimed to be the first cannabis gin with terpenes.
Proving popular with the public the first batch was sold out within days and pre orders on the second batch are already being taken.
The decision to use gin was strongly influenced by the early 17th century practice, and while they added terpenes to mask crudely-produced spirits The Cannabis Company are adding myrcene for its joyful sense of euphoria and relaxation qualities.
Myrcene can also be found in hops and is known to compose up to 50% of the total terpene content found in individual strains of cannabis. It is one of the most highly-valued terpene due to its ability to ease symptoms of chronic pain and inflammation.
Using column stills to craft a lighter more refined gin, the Myrcene has bubblegum aromas with lavender, pine forest and sage. Soft tones of violet interact on the palate with woodland flavours of rosemary and resin, cloves and woody spices.
