Holiday Recipe: Terpene Infused Whipped Cream & CBD Eggnog (Dairy-Free)
It’s impossible to separate the holidays from the nostalgic aromas and flavors that come with them. Sure, holiday music playing everywhere you go 24/7 may get annoying, but do the smells of Balsam pine, roasted chestnuts, cinnamon, and spiced cider ever get old? We have terpenes to thank for many of these signatures aromas that fill the air every December and inspire the holiday spirit in us all.
At Lab Effects, we revel in flavors and aromas that turn the ordinary into extraordinary. Since that’s what the holidays are all about, we wanted to share a fresh take on classic seasonal flavors we find most compelling. If you’re looking for a recipe to stand out at your next holiday party, look no further. Our recipe for cannabis essence whipped cream (infused with our water-miscible terpenes) and CBD egg-nog (dairy-free) will be the buzz of the party! *not that kind of buzz, none of these ingredients contain THC!

Previously, terpenes were only utilized in oil-based applications. Now they can be formulated with any water-based or alcohol recipe as well. Lab Effects offers water-miscible terpenes using a unique micelle technology that allows us to seamlessly fold any terpene profile into a water-based product through an advanced nano-emulsified microencapsulation technique.
