For any cannabis grower or user, marijuana is unique and fun in many different ways. While some enjoy the thrill and varying effects from smoking the herb, others are more intent on high amounts of THC in the bud. However, the most joy users enjoy from toking weed lies in its unique aromatic and taste profile. Smoking buds with rich aromas and flavors are bound to leave an impression on your experience from the resulting high.
Auto-flowering cannabis strains are the love of many commercial growers because they let you harvest sizeable yields in significantly lesser time. Autoflowers are easy to grow and require little fuss to produce great results. This feature means you can cycle more plants within a year; even with limited indoor grow space. When breeders combine the growth power of autos with the mesmerizing flavor profiles of carefully selected parent strains, what you get are varieties designed to take over your taste buds. From the taste of tropical fruit to exotic spices cheese and even cookies, there’s something for everyone to like.
Have you ever wondered why a particular strain tastes very differently in contrast to anything you’ve ever smoked? We have too.
What Makes Cannabis Taste Sweet, Spicy, fruity and more?
There’s some interesting chemistry that involves flavonoids and terpenes; two major compounds produced by the cannabis plant after THC and CBD.
Flavonoids help the taste buds in precisely distinguishing flavor qualities of the plant. We regularly taste flavors of berries, mint, citrus, pine, and other exotic fruits when inhaling or vaping cannabis. The many flavonoids in the buds are responsible for the plant’s distinctive flavors.
Terpenes are secreted fragrant oils that determine the unique aromatic signatures we smell with weed. Common examples of cannabis terpenes are caryophyllene (peppery, spicy smell), pinene (pines), ocimene (minty scents), and terpinolene (fruity, exotic aromas).
