However with the focus placed on whole-plant sourcing and these differences are being evaluated and compared by consumers daily.
Are Flow Scientific terpenes Health Canada approved?
Our terpene ingredients are compliant with the Cannabis Act and the Tobacco and Vaping Act regarding additional ingredients that are permitted. The attached is a reference to the regulations.
To the best of our knowledge Health Canada does not issue licenses or approvals for terpene products. If terpenes have been derived from a cannabis extraction process, they are subject to the same chain of custody regulations as the plant from which they came.
