Browse by Flavour
Cannabis 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 below for the flavour you're interested in, or click here for a full list.
