Medicated popping rock candy? Check! It tastes like grape, pops in your mouth and gets you high. Pretty proud of this formula!

made in hawaii

We recently traveled to the Big Island of Hawaii. One of our local homies was kind enough to put together this lovely compendium of locally grown outdoor nuggs for me. The volcanic soil is truly amazing. You can taste the island!

refining THC

Water-soluble THC is extremely versatile. Most companies use nanotechnology to emulsify the THC in a water-stable solution. This is suspended in a sugar matrix and dissolves water clear.

citronellal & citronellol

Terpenes play important roles in plants as well. Recognize either of these two? They are nature’s natural insect repellents. Their odor is so tenacious and pungent that a tiny drop will alter an entire formula. Most cannabis-derived terpene fractions tend to contain a cloying and overbearing amount of one or both of these. They literally make everything smell like themselves. And no, that’s not a typo: Citronellal and Citronellol smell quite different.

the pinenes

Alpha and Beta Pinene are found in many strains of cannabis. Alpha tends to have a slightly more focused and punctuated aroma while Beta tends to be heavier and less crisp with a deceptively sweet note. You’ll usually find them paired together. The pinenes help keep you even keeled and tend to lower the potential for paranoia and anxiety when you consume.

terpene staples

Humulene and Beta Caryophyllene are probably the most common cannabis native terpenes. They’re found in almost every strain in high abundance, the latter acting as a “primer” for the Delta-9 THC. Some say Beta Caryophyllene aids in the activation of THC, helping you get higher.

natural relaxation

Myrcene and Linalool are sleepy-time terpenes found natively in lavender and hops. Both provide a sedative effect and work really well together for sleep and general relaxation.

scent composition

It is a gift, but it is about harnessing the gift, working your ass off and having grit. I'm fortunate enough to find an industry where I can integrate my highest self into my work every day while retaining enough structure and discipline to make it repeatable and sustainable.

This is the culmination of everything I've ever wanted my work to be but could never figure out how to manifest.

terpenes in gummies

Strain-specific terpenes can be added to the gummies to enhance the high and elicit certain desired effects such as energy, creativity, focus, sleep or relaxation. It is one of many things that I offer my clients.

culinary school

When I went to culinary school, it predated any notion of celebrity chefs. There was no Anthony Bourdain book for people to have their eyes opened up by. Being a chef was very much as he described it in his first book. We were a motley crew of crazies that were doing this insanely difficult work that was physically demanding because we loved it.

We loved the adrenalin; we loved the excitement, the feeling of being mentally and physically exhausted when you go to bed every day.

mixology

Picture a bunch of little bottles in front of me and each one is a molecule. I smell these and combine them, almost like in cooking or creating something like that to create the end product.

It almost looks like wine tasting. There’s a whole lot of holding up to the nose. There’s a lot of drops, a lot of swirling and a lot of smelling.

Cannabis Cup-winning flavorist Oren Cohen’s unique work wasn’t even a thing a decade ago. Finding his own career path, one that enables him to utilize inherent gifts of taste and smell in a creative setting, has been unlikely and is empowered by an independent spirit. Although you most likely never heard of the alchemist otherwise known as FLAV before, you have most likely experienced “this best kept secret” through the vast array of products that he has formulated and produced, including body lotions, shaving cream, hair products, personal lubricants, flavored lube, candles, home and room fragrance, perfume, beverages, food, candy, confection, e-cigarettes and vape, and since 2015, cannabis products.
