When looking at the fruitier side of the terpene spectrum, Limonene stands out as one of the most common and easily recognizable terpenes found in cannabis. It’s associated with sweet and citrusy aromas, and even naturally exists within certain fruit rinds! Limonene is also used in a wide variety of cleaning supplies and cosmetic products for its unique aroma.
Some well-known strains of cannabis that feature Limonene as a dominant terpene are Strawnana, Wedding Cake and Dosidos. As shown by these strains, a cultivar’s other dominant terpenes can play a significant role in how Limonene comes across in its aroma! Although Limonene does generally provide fruity scents, when it’s being overpowered by a funkier terpene such as Caryophyllene it’ll often contribute notes of sugar and dough to a cultivar’s profile.
Limonene’s effects are heady and tend to affect a person’s attitude more than their body. Due to this Limonene is helpful for providing stress and anxiety relief, as well as elevating a person’s mood! Some studies have also found this terpene to be medicinal in many unique ways, but as usual more research must be done before anything is confirmed.
