Description

An Introduction to Terpenes
A four-week course with Oren Cohen
Meets Mondays between November 5 and November 26, 2018

The IAO is excited to team back up with Oren Cohen – founder of Terpene Experts – to explore the aromatics of California's unofficial state flower in an introduction to working and identifying terpenes for use in fragrance, flavors and other creative industries.

This four week course meets mondays for two hours, and serves as a primer for perfumers, flavorists, aficionados and curious minds wanting to explore the origins, profiles and uses of terpenes.

Terpenes are the aromatic oils secreted in the flower’s resin glands, that give different strains their particular aromas: Anywhere from the floral aromas of some strains to the fuel aromas of others, from blueberry sweetness to sour funk.

Although terpenes are used in a wide range of industries, each of our four sessions will cover five common terpenes used specifically in leafy products. As a class, we will smell the terpenes as a group, explore their olfactory profiles, make comparisons and – of course – ground our discussion in real-world applications and materiality.

The goal of the course is simple: To introduce curious students to the mechanics of aroma development, with application in the rapidly expanding California cannabis industry. We will not be consuming or working with the flower itself, in this class.


Time: 6:30pm – 8:30pm
Dates: Mondays November 5, 12, 19, 26
Cost: $250.00
Instructor: Oren Cohen
Notes: We cap this class at 14 people. Class cost includes take-home vials of the aromatic materials studied.

CANCELLATION POLICY

When we host a class or workshop, we often order the materials to be used in the class well in advance, based on how many people have signed up (and padding a bit for safety).

Although we realize that life has a funny way of getting in the way of the best laid plans, as a small non-profit we cannot afford to carry the burden of wasted materials.

With that in mind, here is our refund policy:

– Cancellation with refund request made 2 weeks or more (14 days) before the scheduled class will be honored with gusto! We’ll miss you, but will 100% refund your spot.
– Refunds requested less than 14 days before the scheduled class: We will refund you 50% of your class fee. Why? Because we’ve already ordered the materials.
– Refunds requested less than 48 hours before the class, on the day of the class or after the class has happened will not be granted.

Tickets are non-transferable.
