There are several factors that affect the taste of cannabis. For those who prefer a sublingual or buccal dose, the oil has an impact. Those who prefer to vape can purchase flavored oil smoking products. However, cannabis has its own taste based on the genome of the cannabis strains, the terpene content, and the soil in which it is grown.
Terpenes are found in many plants and affect which animals and insects are attracted to the plant. These compounds are also found in evergreen trees and are part of what defines the aroma and taste of everything produced by the plant, especially the flowering part of the plant.
Depending on the flavor you like the most, you can look for high-content cannabis strains:
- Limes for pine
- Myrcene for mango
- Pinene for citrus fruits
For example, fans of berry-flavored cannabis love a combination of myrcene and pinene, while others like mint and seek the evergreen flavor of lime.
Terroir refers to the taste that each soil receives from the soil and the growing conditions. For example, wine and coffee enthusiasts know that Merlot grapes grown in California are excellent, but the same grapes grown on the volcanic soil of South America have a different taste.
Coffee beans grown in Central America are in great demand, but the same beans grown in the mountains of Hawaii are different again. Defining either of these taste differences as better or worse is quite subjective, but can be very interesting to investigate.
Cannabis growers also focus on the terroir. The growers in Humboldt County, California are now offering a sticker that shows the origin of their cannabis product. The soil and growing conditions there mean that the cannabis from this region has its own unique properties.
Indica, Sativa or Hybrid?
Everyone who uses cannabis products has a specific reason for their focus. If you can’t rest without relaxing, you may have better luck with an indica strain that is higher in CBD. People with chronic pain that they only occasionally need to dull might do better with a microdose of a hybrid strain. Many hybrids offer both relaxation and an energy boost.
For those struggling with anxiety or digestive issues, a microdose of a hybrid like Orange Velvet can relieve enough nausea to get your day going without affecting your perspective. Citrus cannabis flavors can soothe your stomach as well as your nerves.
Your personal taste
If you love the outdoors but can’t always hike, a mint product like Kmintz may suit your tastes. You may also want to grow a variety for your personal use or for loved ones. For example, keeping a supply of Deep Candy products available is an easy option when you cannot sleep. It is low in THC and has a sweet taste.
For the days when you need to reach a little higher, consider growing the fresh and woody Frosty Friday for fresh taste and a THC boost.
Your cannabis needs
If you are lucky enough to use CBD products for minor ailments such as anxiety or headaches, you should invest in Sweet Dream Rose cannabis seeds. This mild-flavored product delivers a floral flavor with a gentle dose of CBD and very little THC.
While CBD products are a great option for those looking to rest deeper or take a break from pain, there are many who are lucky enough to use a higher THC product to energize and focus on their passion to concentrate. For these products in 2021, consider the feminized banana seeds for a light flavor and an energizing euphoria.
Your taste preference can be met at either end of the spectrum and at points along the way. If you are investing in your own seeds and planning to supply your own product, reach out to other gardeners to find out the best way to refresh your soil for your own terroir.
