Terpenes are what give each flower, herb, and fruit its own unique scent, flavor, and essence. You are surrounded by terpenes everywhere you go. When you peel an orange, you smell terpenes. Open a jar of herbs, what you are smelling is the terpenes.
Terpenes are the active ingredients found in essential oils produced by nature, and they can be thought of as building blocks created by plants. There are more than 20,000 terpenes in existence. Each unique blend of terpenes has an important role in influencing what we taste, smell, and feel when a plant, herb or fruit is consumed.
This happens because terpenes interact synergistically with other botanical compounds and humans hormones to create a phenomenon referred to as the “entourage effect ” that magnifies the benefits of the plant’s individual components. Terpenes such as Myrcene, Nerolidol, and Terpinolene have relaxing effects, while Alpha-Pinene is known to be uplifting.

Unfortunately, the heat of a bowl/nail in a water pipe is enough to destroy many of the terpenes in tobacco and other plants. Terpenes are delicate aromatic compounds and very sensitive to heat.
Toke Tonic is designed to add an extra dose of terpenes to replace those that are lost and then some! It contains the full terpene profiles of OG Kush , Blue Dream , and Pineapple Express . This adds a light fruity flavor that blends into the background of whatever you smoke without overpowering it.
Since terpenes are natural compounds found in every plant, they are 100% legal for sale everywhere and not under the regulations of medicinal THC or CBD.
To learn more, check out the work of Dr. Ethan Russo. The complete version of Dr. Ethan Russo’s 1st paper on terpenes “Taming THC: Potential Cannabis Synergy and Phytocannabinoid-Terpenoid Entourage Effects” is available here.

Store Toke Tonic in your freezer for an extra chill experience! Whenever you mix something with water, you lower the freezing point. This is true even when adding salt or sugar to water.
Toke Tonic is a mixture of non-toxic edible ingredients with a freezing point so low you can pull your smoke through a liquid that’s -4°F (-20°C)! It also doesn’t expand when it’s cold, so it’s safe to load your water pipe with Toke Tonic and then store the whole thing into your freezer.
In fact, the smoke coming out of a frozen water pipe is so chilled that it will still be cold to the touch when you breath it out. It’s the chillest hit science can deliver, and it’s only possible with Toke Tonic!

When freezing your water pipe, be sure to remove the bowl/nail and other attachments. We recommend covering the openings with plastic wrap to avoid spilling and to keep out off-flavors from items in your freezer. It’s also a good idea to avoid freezing water pipes with electronics, different types of materials other than glass, and low-quality thin glass that feels delicate to the touch.
For the best experience, we recommend using high-quality modular water pipes such as Vitae Glass . Their bases come with cleaning caps that can conveniently cover their openings in the freezer, and the modular design means you can always have a frozen base that’s ready to go!
