The Best Smelling Marijuana Strains 2020

Most connoisseurs will tell you that cannabis should be purchased with your nose, letting the natural harmony of terpenes guide your decision. One of the flaws with state regulations requiring pre-packaged cannabis is that it removes the nose from the equation and forces you to wait until you get home to find out how pungent the purchased flower may be.

When most people think about the smell of marijuana, they usually imagine a skunky aroma. But avid cannabis users know that many strains not only don’t smell like a skunk, but actually have quite pleasant aromas.

Here are the five best smelling marijuana strains.

Super Lemon Haze


It’s probably not hard to figure out what Super Lemon Haze smells like. It has a nice citrusy and sweet aroma, and the taste is also similar to a Lemonhead candy, but not quite as sharp. If you’re a fan of the smell of lemons, this is for you.


Tangie is a citrus dream crafted by the masterminds at DNA Genetics. There’s no strain I’d sooner rely on for good flavor than this sativa; popping the lid of a jar of Tangie and filling your nose with the smell of fresh orange zest can be somewhat of a religious experience of wonderment. With the sweet smell of citrus and fruit medley, Tangie lets you drift upwards slowly and steadily into euphoria, where bad moods don’t stand a chance.


Somango is a delightful and flavorful indica-dominant strain. With its sweet and tropical taste and aromas, Somango is sure to have your mouth salivating upon the first hit. For being essentially indica, Somango delivers a happy, uplifting buzz with a side of chill. Moreover, its buds are beautiful, dense, and frosty, looking as delicious as they taste.

Somango isn’t the easiest of sweet and fruity strains to grow, but best believe it is worth every bit of the wait. Although Somango can thrive both indoors and outdoors, outside she can stretch high to the sky when planted in a warm, sunshiny atmosphere. Once you get to savor all the yummy terpenes and cannabinoids, you’ll be glad you made room for her in your garden.


No, the Lavender strain doesn’t smell exactly like lavender. It’s name is based off the pruple color of the strain’s leaves. But the strain does have a floral smell, as well as a little bit of spicy aroma as well. So even if you’re not a fan of the lavender scent, the strain may be right for you.


Speaking of strains that smell exactly like fruit, this list would never be complete without the mention of Blueberry. Without Blueberry, there would be no Blue Dream, no Blue Cheese, no Blue Cookies; “Blue” hybrids simply wouldn’t exist. You’ll notice all of these strains carry a blueberry-like smell, but few can match the original Blueberry’s uncanny resemblance to a bushel of overripe blueberries plucked straight from the branch.

Bubble Gum


As a kid, you probably loved chewing bubble gum while playing outside with your friends. And now as an adult, you and your friends can enjoy the pleasantly sweet aroma of the Bubble Gum strain.
