Trichome Interpening Course Level 2


DOPE Magazine is partnering with the Trichome Institute to offer a one-day only training course designed to teach YOU the art of interpening! Whether you are new to cannabis or have been an enthusiast of the plant for some time, this is a fundamental course for all ganja consumers.

What is Interpening?

Combining the words terpenes and interpreting, interpening is the cannabis equivalent to the act of sommeliers interpreting wine or cuppers interpreting coffee. The Trichome Institute formally defines it as, “the science of dissecting cannabis flower for total quality control and variety type designation”.
