Chief Science Officer, True Terpenes
If you combine 2 parts Walter Cronkite, 1 part Hunter S. Thompson, 1 part Mr. Wizard & roll it into a joint with some high terpene plants, you'd get a pretty good idea of who David Heldreth is.
Heldreth's work cultivating & educating patients with medical cannabis collectives led him to the Werc Shop & Jeffrey Raber, pioneers in cannabis analytical testing. Werc Shop & Raber were offering terpene & cannabinoid profiling services to growers around 2010. These early tests alerted Heldreth to the existence of terpenes, cannabidiol, the entourage effect & the numerous other compounds the plant created. Heldreth said the ability to test for terpenes allowed him to give patients a more reproducible experience & to identify what was helping them in these varieties. The knowledge of terpenes & ability to test for them also led Heldreth to develop his company Panacea Plant Sciences & patent formulas for cultivators to increase terpenes & potency in cannabis. He is now sharing the variety of medical, botanical, & economic data on terpenes he's accumulated with the True Terpenes audience through his role as our marketing content manager in addition to trying to educate the masses on plant medicine.
