Terpene Recipe: Mint Pea Nage Infused with β-pinene
What happens when you introduce botanical terpenes into the kitchen?
Brand new flavors and an immersive aromatic dining experience.
Throughout our ongoing beverage & culinary series with Travis Petersen (The Nomad Cook), he discovered the nuanced flavor opportunities afforded by both botanical terpenes and cannabis-derived terpene essence. Utilizing different formats, from water miscible to high-speed flowable powder terpenes, The Nomad Cook has created cocktails, sauces, dressings, and much more.
This month’s terpene recipe offering features the sometimes spicy, sometimes herbal complex aromas of beta-pinene, in a light and versatile mint pea nage.

1 Tbsp Grapeseed Oil
1 Cup Frozen Peas
1 Cup Fennel (Small Chop)
1 Cup Spinach
3 Cloves Garlic (Minced)
1 Leek – Bottom Part (Diced)
2 Cups White Chicken Stock
50mg CBD Global’s CBD isolate
3 drops Beta-Pinene
1. Bring the stock just to a boil and remove from heat.
2. Heat a frying pan to medium-low and add grapeseed oil. Add fennel, season with salt & pepper and cook until it becomes soft. Add garlic at the end and lightly toss. Remove from heat.
3. Using a blender or Vitamix, puree the cooked garlic fennel, frozen peas, mint, lemon juice, salt, pepper and stock. Using a fine mesh strainer, pass the puree through into a separate bowl.
4. Add CBD Oil and Beta-Pinene to puree.
5. Serve at room temperature! (If you reheat this sauce, the beta-pinene will evaporate and you may lose some of the CBD potency).
Pairs well with poached seafood! Enjoy!
The Nomad Cook chose beta-pinene as the terpene infusion for this dish due to its fresh and earthy aroma, along with its long list of therapeutic benefits. Because beta-pinene can be sourced from a variety of herbal sources, including dill, parsley, and rosemary, it was a natural choice to enhance the light, bright notes of mint and dill.
