Qerpene: Proprietary Terpene-Based Formulations that supports a defined and consistent consumer product experience using well defined terpene effects.

Terpenes offer some of the greatest benefits for a formulation due to research showing their sedative* energetic properties. While some terpene profiles are formulated for topical use we focus primarily on ingested terpene formulations supported by our proprietary processes and products.

One example is a class of sedatives called benzodiazepines work through the GABA-a receptors. They can bind to a distinct receptor site and act as positive allosteric modulators of GABA (increases activation of the receptor by GABA. There is a variety of evidence that some terpenes exert their effect through the same benzodiazepine binding site of GABA-a receptors. 

Given the plant's natural profile changes and inconsistency in maintaining the %'s and ratios of these components we have standardized our own proprietary "entourage formulations" represented in our Qerpene profiles to create perfect lab tested entourage %'s and ratios that support the cannabinoid profiles of our products.


We openly admit that much research and human studies are needed to truly understand and properly administer terpenes for medical use. Given the depth of data still needed when combining ingestible cannabinoids and terpenes profiles for a wide variety of medical uses we will continue to explore and research this emerging sector of the market through our own efforts and other terpene specific experts while responsibly formulating for our Qerpene profiles.


We utilize the GABA receptors for terpene formulations we focus on the GABA-a and GABA-b receptors by increasing or suppressing their activity through the plantrica proprietary terpene profiles.  

Qerpene supports the GABA-a receptor by supporting its activity increasing the sedative properties this creates.

The benefits of Qerpene include*:

  • Proprietary formulations

  • Natural plant based terpene formulations

  • Utilizes safe and natural ingredients

  • Utilizes plantrica's enQap and nanoTeQ formulations/technologies to increase bioavailability


  • Reduced physical activity: This is the most classic sedative effect, akin to the “couch-lock” described for some cannabis strains.

  • Hypnotic: This is the ability to induce sleep. Sedatives may both reduce the time to fall asleep as well as induce a longer period of sleep.

  • Anxiolytic: Many sedatives will reduce anxiety.

  • Anticonvulsant: Due to inhibiting neuronal activity, sedatives can reduce the frequency or intensity of seizures.

  • enQap, nanoTeQ, eQuiLib and Qerpene proprietary processes and/or formulations by plantrica

  • enQap, nanoTeQ, eQuiLib and Qerpene are trademarks of plantrica


Why the "Q"? We obsessively Question and breakdown the components of our processes and formulations in the endless pursuit of Quality. The Q is our nod towards this initiative.
