Aside from supplying delicious and unique tastes, terpenes also heavily influence the cannabis high. THC underpins the main psychotropic effect of the herb, but different terpenes modulate the experience through the entourage effect  . Terpenes such as myrcene synergise with THC to create a relaxing physical effect, whereas limonene works alongside cannabinoids to create more of a stimulating outcome.
Every cannabis strain produces its own unique terpene profile. Both genetic and environmental factors play a role in the quantity and type of terpenes that each plant churns out. Varying terpene profiles explain why some strains offer sweet and sugary tastes, while others are much more fuel-like and earthy.
An introduction into what causes cannabis to taste or smell a certain way with a more in-depth look at how some cannabis strains taste and smell like fruit and a top list of 5 fruit-flavored cannabis strains.
Many cannabis strains send flavours of fruit rolling across the tongue. Not surprisingly, cannabis produces several terpenes also found in popular fruits. Terpenes such as limonene and valencene are found in fruit peels, underpinning the citrusy tastes that many strains carry. Other dominant fruity terpenes include myrcene and pinene. Overall, fruity strains feature a balance of citrus, earthiness, bitterness, and sweetness.
Of all the terpenes, pinene occurs the most frequently throughout nature. The aromatic compound is responsible for the gorgeous scent of pine forests and Thai lime, and also contributes a similar aroma to cannabis strains.
The most dominant aromas tend to be the sweet, citrus, sour and orange. Passion Fruit also has a unique grape flavour which is particularly tasty. If you want a delicious, rich and extremely powerful cannabis variety with genuine fruit-taste overload then you will love Passion Fruit feminised seeds!
