Cannabis plants feature a wide selection of aromas and flavours, ranging in both quality and quantity. Each cannabis strain has its distinct palette of tastes and smells. Those unique and defining characteristics are accomplished through careful and knowledgeable breeding. Getting the desired aromas in such a manner is very time-consuming. These days we’re lucky to have such an abundance of great tasting strains to match your every need and every mood with their aromas or flavor profiles.
A wide range of compounds has been found in the cannabis plant. Those responsible for scent are called terpenes and terpenoids. Terpenes are a large class of aromatic hydrocarbons while terpenoids are a derivative of terpenes made by oxidation. Most terpenes are quite volatile, that is why even at room temperature cannabis can smell so strongly. Most dominant terpenes found in the terpene composition of fruit-flavored cannabis are myrcene and limonene.
