Every marijuana strain has it’s own unique weed flavors. These are noticeable in both the aroma and taste of the bud.
The flavored weed is determined by terpenes which are secreted in the same glands that produce cannabinoids such as THC and CBD. The terpenes provide distinct weed flavors ranging from sweet and citrus to diesel and skunk.
Environmental factors determine and influence the development of terpenes in each plant. Examples of some factors include weather, plant age, fertilizer, climate, and soil. In addition, production logistics such as trimming, curing, and handling can make an impact as well.
However, as research of terpenes continues, some believe they could also have an impact on what happens when you consume them. According to Mowgli Holmes, a geneticist and the founder of Phylos Bioscience, terpenes may also have an impact on someones high. If this is proven true, terpenes may be a key factor in future strain production.
