10 beta-Caryophyllene Dominant Cannabis Strains

If you love cannabis cultivars with spicy, earthy notes, then read on and discover which strains are dominant in beta-Caryophyllene. 

Found in spices like black pepper and herbs like oregano, beta-Caryophyllene is a particularly special terpene. Not only does it act as a dietary cannabinoid because it binds to CB2 receptors, but its uniquely spicy and woodsy aroma is responsible for some of the aromas of iconic cannabis cultivars.

So, whether you want to experience the sensorial effects or if you’re chasing that unique aroma and taste, here are ten cannabis strains with LOTS of beta-Caryophyllene.

Cannabis Cultivars With LOTS of beta-Caryophyllene 

Garlic Cookies

Descended from other beta-Caryophyllene dominant cultivars (GSC x Chemdawg), it’s no surprise that this deliciously odd profile has plenty of the spicy isolate. Garlic Cookies balances sweet and savory by combining vegetal notes of garlic, onion, and mushroom with delicate floral aromas for an experience that’s entirely unforgettable.

Dominant in both beta-Caryophyllene and alpha-Caryophyllene, GG4 is seriously potent. The cultivar is a powerful combination of Chem’s Sister, Sour Dubb, and Chocolate Diesel, and the couchlock it can induce is legendary. The terpene profile is mildly floral with tangible notes of wood, spice, and skunk. Plus, with a Loud Factor of 94% and a Gas Factor of 93, GG4 has an in-your-face dank quality that overwhelms the senses in the best way possible.

Ghost Train Haze

The aroma of this cultivar will enchant your senses, while the heavy-hitting haze effects promote cerebral stimulation and a powerful body buzz. And as a two-time winner of the High Times annual Strongest Strains on Earth award, Ghost Train Haze means business. The terpene profile of this cultivar is both piney and dank, with beautiful floral notes of herbs and citrus.

King Louie XIII

As the royal descendent of OG Kush and LA Confidential, it makes sense that King Louie XIII is straight gas (its Gas Factor is literally 100). The dank terpene profile of this cultivar is loud and in your face with elements of wood, earth, and the perfect sharp hit of lemon.

Kush Cake

The name alone combines two of our favorite things, but that’s not a shock considering its origins include Cherry Pie and GSC. Kush Cake is sweet, gassy, and surprisingly creamy with a unique balance of pine and vanilla.

London Pound Cake

Speaking of dessert-like cultivars, London Pound Cake is an exotic delight. You can practically smell its Sunset Sherbert lineage with every dank note of sour lemons and berries. The mouthwatering aftertaste of vanilla cookies, however, will leave you feeling peaceful and relaxed.

Orange Soda

As a cross between Tangie and Grandma’s Sugar Cookies, it makes sense that Orange Soda usually becomes an instant favorite among everyone who tries it. Its delicious earthy elements, thanks in large part to beta-Caryophyllene, harmonize perfectly with the sweet notes of citrus from isolates like Myrcene and d-Limonene.

For those looking for an energetic cultivar with a unique earthy aroma, look no further than SFV OG. Named for its OG Kush lineage and the area from which it hailed, this cultivar’s terpene profile is uniquely herbal with notes of pine and citrus. Expect to feel less stressed and a bit giggly when consuming this dank cultivar.

Super Lemon Haze

This zesty cultivar will elevate your mood and put a much-needed pep in your step. Unsurprisingly, Super Lemon Haze is bursting with a sweet, citric aroma. Originating from Lemon Skunk and Super Silver Haze, it has a candy-like lemon aroma with a hint of pine that stimulates the mind and makes it perfect for daytime use.

As a cross between a Mexican Sativa, Afghani, and Lavender, this cultivar manages to be both relaxing and energetic. The tranquil aroma of its terpene profile balances sweet berries and dank earthy elements. It’s one of those cultivars you’ll just have to experience yourself.
