Best Cannabis Terpenes for Fall

When the seasons shift, the nights cool, and the campfires glow, you want certain flavors to accompany your fall aesthetic. As a cannabis consumer, this means you’re going to want to pay close attention to the terpenes in your marijuana. Terpenes are what give your marijuana flower, among other cannabis products, the flavors and aromas you experience when you enjoy cannabis. We’ve got a few favorite terpenes we love that are perfect for your fall festivities.

Savory & Comforting: Myrcene

If you love putting out fall scents in your home, myrcene is the terpene you’re going to want to look for. It has a pleasant, clove-like scent that can sometimes carry enough fruity undertones that candles get jealous. In fact, if you love mango, chances are you’ve smelled myrcene before because mangoes are chock-full of this terpene.

Interested in pairing your myrcene-heavy cannabis with food? You’ll want to get out a few savory recipes. Picture this: A glass pipe of one of the below-mentioned strains of marijuana flower, a warm blanket, and a hot bowl of tomato soup paired with a gooey grilled cheese sandwich.

Myrcene-heavy strains: Birthday Cake, White Widow, Grape Ape and Purple Urkle.

Woodsy & Spicy: Caryophyllene

Caryophyllene brings a richly-scented vibe you’re sure to enjoy this fall season. Caryophyllene has a woodsy, spicy scent, and it’s commonly found in herbs like cinnamon, basil, and lavender, as well as certain cannabis strains. When it comes to food pairings, caryophyllene is versatile. For example, if you’re looking to smoke or vape your caryophyllene-rich strain outdoors, get your ingredients for s’mores ready. The woodsy scent of caryophyllene works perfectly around the campfire.

But maybe sweet treats aren’t your thing? In that case, go big and bold. Pan-seared vegetables, rich, red meat, and robust wines are all great complements to your caryophyllene-rich cannabis.

Sweet & Hoppy: Humulene

Sage lovers are about to get excited—humulene gives sage it’s herbal, spicy scent. Like myrcene, it can also have sweet undertones that many people say reminds them of clove. And if that’s not enough reason to add humulene to your fall favorites, humulene gives hops it’s unique scent that helps beer have it’s classic aroma.

Can you see where we’re heading with this? A good IPA is where it’s at when pairing humulene-rich cannabis with food or drink. But given it’s sweet undertones, it can also be a great complement to any sweet desserts like, for example, a fall favorite, pumpkin pie.
