Review: “The White” Terpsolate by The Hemp Barn
“Terpsolate” is CBD isolate that has been infused with terpenes. Terpenes are natural plant compounds that create the unique scent & flavor signature of each cannabis variety — and they also influence medicinal effects as they interact with cannabinoid receptors.
Many companies are using chemist-concocted blends of terpenes that closely approximate the natural ratios found in cannabis strains. However, this new line of CBD products from the The Hemp Barn contains natural cannabis-derived terpenes that are extracted directly from high-grade weed in Los Angeles. This type of CBD product is most commonly vaporized in a wax pen or dabbed in a rig, but it can also be eaten or dissolved into warm oil for a homemade oral tincture. I purchased this on a “7/10” day sale for a discount. It was shipped the next day and it arrived about 3 days later. Here’s how it performed:
Presentation: The product comes in a small glass jar with a foil air seal across the mouth, and a thin plastic lid. I had a hard time opening the jar at first but after a bit of twisting and wrangling I had no further difficulties. The product inside is a white, crumbly matter that leaves an oily and fragrant residue on the fingers if handled.
Composition: Unknown, as product & batch-specific lab test results were not published on the product page at the time of my purchase. It’s allegedly “99% pure CBD” infused with cannabis-derived terpenes containing “0.00% THC.”
Aroma & Taste: A number of competing products smell “interesting” and faint – but this stuff smells pungent and fairly similar to cannabis flower. The terpenes seem to be expertly extracted and fresh. Along with dank, this product is “clean” smelling – with overtones of pine, lemon and antiseptic. Puffing it in my Linx Hypnos Zero pen connected to a Magic Flight Bottle Rocket bubbler is very smooth. It has a delicious flavor that is a little bit different than the scent would initially suggest. There are notes of black tea, lemonade and berries. Think: an Arnold Palmer with a little bit of Strawberry Nerds candy stirred in. Yum.
Effects: I selected “The White” because Leafly describes it as a heavier indica and I wanted something to help me wind down at night for bed. At about 8pm I was feeling fatigued and aching from an intense callesthenics workout earlier. I took two rips through my Linx Hypnos Zero. Almost immediately I could feel warm fuzzies in my head and behind my eyes. I sat down, looked around and noticed a very slight shimmering of the patterns in my oriental rug. Noticeable, undulating physical sensations of relaxation and warmth spread to my shoulders, chest and legs. I turned on a podcast on spiritual topics but I had a hard time following along. I gave up and switched on some non-cerebral videos on YouTube. At the 20 minute point I felt like the effects had fully kicked in. The videos looked colorful and were more enjoyable than normal. I was in my own little cozy world with the lights off, no discomfort or worries or any sort… Netflix-n-chillin’ to perfection.
After about 90 minutes I felt completely relaxed, ready for bed and fell asleep moments after my head hit the pillow. It was like a mild “indica lite” with valid medicinal effects but less bang (psychedelic energy, euphoria, intoxication & dissociation) that would come from a THC version.
The Verdict: This is one of the best CBD isolate products I have tried in terms of smell, taste and effects. I have have been using products from Phyto Family and Extract Labs but based on this new release I am considering this company as having high potential. I am curious to try their other terpenes and await new strains to see if they measure up.

The Hemp Barn
We are passionate about the hemp industry and will only sell tried and true products from reputable companies that share our passion. We believe CBD should be affordable for all walks of life and only carry products from companies who practice ethical pricing and farming practices. Everything you see on this site we have personally tried and comes from a company that we know on a personal level. This ensures we know the complete history of our products from seed to shelf.
I created The Hemp Barn because there was a void in the CBD market for fully traceable, transparent and affordable hemp derived CBD products. I have personally been involved in the cannabis industry for over 15 years and was appalled by the price gouging, questionably quality and lack of transparency by several CBD companies and their products. The same people who risked their lives paving the future of the cannabis industry were getting pushed out and taken over by big corporations who had little interest in the cannabis industry other than profits. Because of this, the majority of hemp derived CBD products are price gouged for a quick cash grab and of questionable quality. We are a small business and believe small business is the backbone of our country! We may not have the largest selection of products but we believe in quality over quantity.
You will notice a lot of companies claiming their products are lab tested and fully traceable yet are unable to provide lab results, what farms grew the hemp, how it was farmed( organic?, no pesticides?, etc.), what lab and extraction method was used. Unlike them, we can! Since we personally work with local farms and clean, registered labs we know the complete history of all of our products and can answer all your questions in terms of lab results, pesticides, who grew the hemp, where was it manufactured and what extraction method was used.
