Love Citrus? Check Out These 10 Citrus-Forward Cannabis Strains!
The name alone can cause a mouthwatering, lip-puckering sensation. Sour Tangie is a phenomenal example of what happens when nature perfectly balances citrus-forward flavors with gassy, peppery notes. Think tangerines, a hint of sour, and a drop of diesel.
We love this strain so much that our experts also carefully crafted a Sour Tangie Rosin! This volatile delicacy is an explosion of citrus flavor that perfectly captures the essence of Sour Tangie with dominant terpenes Linalool, Beta-Myrcene, and Beta-Pinene.
Super Lemon Haze
You didn’t think we’d talk about citrus strains without mentioning Super Lemon Haze, did you? Of course not! This two-time cannabis cup winner lives up to its namesake in both smell and taste—zesty, citrusy, and perfectly sweet. Imagine a lemon head candy with a smidge less pucker.
Dominant terpenes Beta-Caryophyllene, Terpinolene, Alpha-Humulene, Myrcene, and Beta-Pinene infuse this strain with a phenomenal flavor that will have you floating in hazy citrus heaven.
Much like its brunch-time namesake, this strain is the perfect way to start your weekend. Bred from Clementine and Purple Punch, Mimosa has a fruit-forward aroma that’s sweetly citric with subtle earthy flavors. It’s truly mouthwatering and will leave you feeling euphoric, energized, and focused.
To experience this eye-widening flavor, infuse your product with mimosa terpenes. Powered by dominant isolates D-Limonene, Beta-Caryophyllene, Myrcene, and Linalool, people will become repeat customers just to get another whiff of that mouthwatering flavor.
It didn’t seem fair to mention Mimosa without paying homage to its citrusy lineage! This energizing strain is an explosion of citrus flavors—lemons, oranges, and obviously clementine. Lovers of Clementine recommend it for early wake’n bake sessions or for an afternoon pick-me-up to power through the day.
We see these terpenes being VERY successful in a variety of products. From sports drinks and spirits to distillate and edibles, you can’t go wrong with this blend. Dominant isolates Limonene, Beta-Caryophyllene, Myrcene, and Linalool give this terpene blend (and the strain!) the perfect balance of sweet and citrus.
There’s just no way to talk about citrus-forward cannabis without including the OG strains. Obviously, we could rave about OG Kush, but we wanted to feature a few lesser-known (but equally dank and delicious) strains. So, we figured why not start with the devil himself—Diablo OG.
With this strain, the flavor is more herbaceous than sweet. Think lemony pine, a hint of blueberry, and a dash of pepper. Dominant terpenes Alpha-Humulene, Beta-Caryophyllene, D-Limonene, and Linalool impart cerebral effects that are often described as euphoric, focused, and calm.
Also known as San Fernando Valley OG, this strain has everything you love about OG strains with a little something extra. It has a unique aromatic bouquet that manages to be tart, piney, mildly earthy, with a pungent citric finish. It puts you in a great mood, stress will melt away, and you might even notice fewer aches and pains.
Dominant terpenes D-Limonene, Myrcene, Beta-Caryophyllene, and Linalool make SFV OG less earthy than other OG strains and slightly less sour than Jet Fuel.
White Fire OG
Honestly, we could rave about OG strains all day. However, we’re going to finish off our OG strains with White Fire OG. Also known as WiFi OG, this strain shouldn’t be underestimated. It has notoriously high THC levels and the uplifting, cerebral effects come on FAST.
Dominant terpenes Alpha-Humulene, Beta-Caryophyllene, and D-Limonene give White Fire OG a flavor that’s sour, citrus, peppery, and earthy. Depending on your method of consumption, you could even notice subtle flavors of fuel and herbs. We envision this terpene blend in beers, vapes, or even edibles.
If you couldn’t guess, Grapefruit Kush is an absolute masterpiece of sweet, grapefruit flavor. No other citrus fruit is as tart and mouth-puckering, but the kush elements soften these flavors into an experience that’s sweet and smooth.
Dominant terpenes D-Limonene, Beta-Caryophyllene, Myrcene, and Linalool give it citrus-fueled flavor along with potent uplifting and calming effects. We’ll just be over here anxiously waiting for someone to make a Grapefruit Kush soft drink, candy, or even a candle…
For our last two strains, we thought we’d take a trip to the tropics! Maui Wowie is an iconic strain that’s perfect for dawn patrol, beach bonfires, or adventurous hikes. It doesn’t hurt that it’s BURSTING with tropical citrus flavor either.
Dominant terpenes Beta-Caryophyllene, Myrcene, D-Limonene, and Alpha Pinene infuse this strain with tropical citrus flavors like pineapple, lemons, and more! We would give you a few more ideas for products, but honestly…we want EVERYTHING to smell like Maui Wowie!
If you’re looking for an energetic hybrid strain with uplifting and calming effects, Pineapple Express won’t disappoint. Plus, those funky pineapple notes are to die for! It’s less sweet than an actual pineapple, but floral notes elevate it and create something with serious vacation vibes.
Dominant terpenes Myrcene, Alpha-Pinene, and Beta-Caryophyllene infuse both the strain and this terpene blend with long-lasting effects that tend to take hold quickly. Think uplifting, alert, and creative.
