Cannabis can have different effects on people, making them feel in all sorts of ways. Some folks feel happy and euphoric when they use cannabis. It's like a wave of joy washes over them, and they can't help but smile. Others find that cannabis makes them super relaxed. All the tension drains from them, and they can chill.

Some people notice that time seems to move differently when they're using cannabis. Minutes can feel like hours, and time seems to stretch out. Others find that their senses are sharper and more alive. Food tastes better, music sounds amazing, and even colours can seem brighter.

Cannabis can also make people giggle a lot or become really chatty. You might find yourself cracking up at the smallest things or chatting non-stop about everything and anything. And of course, there's the munchies. Some people get a real appetite boost and just can't stop snacking.

These are just some of the effects people have reported. Click on an icon above to see all the strains reported to cause that feeling. Whether you're after a particular effect or just curious to see what's out there, this is a great way to find the right strain for you.

Weed strains come in many different flavours, all thanks to the natural compounds - terpenoids and flavonoids - found in the plant's flowers. These flavours make up a lot of what makes each strain unique and different from one another.

You've got strains that taste and smell like pine, giving you that fresh forest vibe. Some strains might hit you with a bright and zesty citrus kick. You've got others with a clean and cool minty taste or the sweet tang of berries and tropical fruits. Some strains even have a soothing floral touch of lavender or a rich, earthy aroma that's grounding.

There are some powerful strains with a bold diesel scent, matched with fiery spicy or strong herbal smells. If you like something more edgy, try strains that have a peppery, musky or skunky kick. If you fancy something sweeter, there are strains with a sweet, woody, cheesy, grapey, rosy, mango-like or lemony taste.

The choice is yours! Simply click on the icons above for the flavour you're interested in. Each one will take you to a list of strains that carry that particular taste or smell. Whether you're looking for something familiar or new, this is your chance to explore the exciting world of cannabis flavours.

Terpenes not only impart the majority of the flavour and aroma of weed, but they also play a significant role in the effects that cannabis has on people, influencing mood and physical sensations in many ways. When consumed, some folks feel uplifted and energetic thanks to terpenes like limonene, which is known for its mood-enhancing properties. Other terps, like myrcene (also found in hops and lemongrass), can produce soothing, relaxing effects, helping people unwind and relieve stress.

Many people also report altered sensory experiences when using cannabis, and this is at least partly due to terpenes! Strains rich in pinene can make environments feel more vivid and immersive, sharpening senses and increasing alertness. Meanwhile, linalool, a terpene found in lavender, might enrich the experience by making time feel more fluid and enhancing the perception of music and colours.

Cannabis strains high in terpenes like terpinolene can lead to bursts of creativity and sociability, making users more talkative and prone to laughter. This terpene can turn an ordinary conversation into a long-winded, rambling exchange full of giggles. And then there's the appetite stimulation: terpenes like humulene can either curb or intensify cravings, contributing to the infamous munchies that make snacks irresistible.

These are just a few ways terpenes impact cannabis's effects. Click on one of the icons above to explore weed strains rich in your chosen terpene and discover how they might make you feel. Whether you're searching for a specific sensation or just exploring your options, understanding terpenes is key to finding the perfect strain for your needs.
