My name is Nydia, I am the mom part of this duo and also a ganja clergywoman, entrepreneur, advocate, educator, and so much more. My son Aramis is the Creator and VIsionary of this company.
Hello & Welcome to Got Terpenes?
As a clergywoman that works with scared plant medicine, terpenes & cannabinoids, are consistently discussed in our household. We regularly venture into the woods or local farmers' markets and discuss these plant components throughout our day.
One day, Aramis asked about the terpenes on an educational poster I have hanging in our dining room. He carefully spelled out the words and drew corresponding associations of the terpenes. I posted it on Instagram ( you’d have to scroll a ways back, but its there), the number of likes and love I received for this parenting win within the cannabis community was overwhelming. A light bulb went off and a single shirt was made.
Aramis was so excited to wear his shirt. On the morning after an overnight stay, he proudly put it on and began talking about cannabis. He was immediately denied and asked to change his shirt. Intrigued by this, I processed and decided that out of respect, and as a mom, it was time to shift the dialogue and focus on terpenes and their influence on plant science. The shift meant we would share education about plant medicine with a focus on the science behind it. One shirt at a time.
So I intentionally made another sleepover date and packed the same shirt. This time instructing my sone to leave the word “cannabis” out of the conversation and just focus on EVERYTHING else.
I must report. He didnt make it to far, as a kid, we only let them talk so much, especially when we are adults with our own focus and limiting beliefs. Regardless he tried and I came in with a sweep, asking for some sage to bundle from their back yard. We had the terpene conversation and left another family member stumped. The kind of stumped that feels good.
So now that you know the story. Dive in with us and share with us your favorite terpene. We find it hard. We both have 3 or 4 we favor. Thank you for reading about us, supporting us, and have a wonderful rest of your day.
