ETHANOL. TERPENES. QUALITY.
ETHANOL. TERPENES. QUALITY.
KAYA utilizes ethanol to carefully extract a potent combination of cannabinoids and terpenes from the cannabis plant. We have chosen to use ethanol because it is sustainable; no hydrocarbons are released during the process and it is fully reusable. Furthermore, ethanol is, in our eyes, a better extracting agent as it preserves more cannabinoids and terpenes than other options such as light hydrocarbons (ethane, propane, butane and hexane) or CO2.
Among the most exciting discoveries in cannabis research is the illumination of the “entourage effect,” a term coined by chemists S. Ben-Shabat and Raphael Mechoulam in the late 1990s. The entourage effect, as it is currently understood, is the synergistic power between cannabinoids and terpenes. These chemical compounds found within the cannabis plant—common cannabinoids include THC and CBD, while terpenes such as limonene, linalool and myrcene give plants their distinct aroma and flavor—work cohesively to elicit specific effects for an individual consumer.
For example, limonene, one of the most readily available terpenes found in the natural world, has been found to alleviate gastro-oesophageal reflux. This makes it particularly intriguing to those seeking antiemetic benefits from cannabis, particularly when paired with CBD which is known to suppress vomiting and reduce nausea. Another example to illuminate this chemical synergy: myrcene has been researched as an effective analgesic and sedative. Therefore, this terpene is particularly sought after for individuals seeking both pain relaxation and pain relief.
KAYA believes this natural ability for the cannabis plant to speak to various ailments with particular efficacy should be celebrated and utilized to its highest potential. This is why we infuse our Mys stix and Dab Buckets—which oftentimes loses their terpene profile during the extraction process—with high quality, food-grade, non-GMO terpenes. This addition helps improve THC’s therapeutic benefits and creates a more powerful medicine. The addition of terpenes also allows for an easier vaping experience, ensuring each hit is effective and safe.
QUALITY • PURITY • CLEANLINESS
Our company prides itself on only using high-quality, in-house, mountain-grown cannabis to create a full-spectrum distillate, preserving many medicinal cannabinoids and terpenes. The interactive synergy between these compounds creates a powerful medicine for treating a number of ailments. This distillate is made through an ethanol extraction and single solvent winterization process. Through our extensive purging process, we ensure the safety and efficacy of our oil extraction resulting in the lowest ppm, highest potency medicines — at KAYA we value quality, purity & cleanliness above all else.
