4 Terpinolene Dominant Cannabis Strains

Terpinolene is a uniquely sweet, pine-forward isolate, and you can experience it for yourself in the terpene profiles of these four cannabis cultivars. 

What do plants like cumin, apple, lilac, and tea tree have in common? Their terpene profiles all contain the terpene isolate terpinolene! Considering that these plants all have very different aromas, we understand why that may be confusing. Generally, terpinolene is produced in small amounts and, on its own, it has a multifaceted aroma that’s woody, piney, sweet, and even a bit citrusy.

If you want to experience the unique aroma of this isolate, we recommend checking out the following cannabis cultivars. They’re all intensely potent, stimulating, and their aromas are distinct and unforgettable. Read on and discover four of the most popular cannabis cultivars that are dominant in terpinolene.

Jack Herer

You’ve definitely heard of this iconic cultivar, but now you know that terpinolene plays a pivotal role in its spicy, citrusy goodness. This isolate makes up 34% of Jack Herer flower and 36% of our Signature Series Jack Herer profile. The cerebral effects of terpinolene help create some of the invigorating, uplifting effects this strain is known for. Expect to feel mentally stimulated and physically relaxed.

Durban Poison

Durban Poison is one the purest, most potent sativa strains available. It’s also considered one of the best tasting buds with its harmonious blend of sweet, spice, citrus, and wood. The spice elements are reminiscent of chai, so imagine spices like anise. Citrus notes perfectly accent the sweet elements of pine, but none of this aromatic complexity would be possible without terpinolene. This heavy-hitting cultivar is known for its stimulating cerebral effects that are best enjoyed earlier in the day.

Ghost Train Haze

This award-winning strain has a floral, earthy sweetness that will enchant your senses as its hazy effects take you on a supernatural journey. Terpinolene helps create its dank aroma that’s piney and gassy, yet beautifully citric with herbal and floral notes. The effects generally start with a boost of invigoration followed by waves of heady euphoria. Fortunately, heavy body relaxation will keep your senses grounded on this plane of existence.

Super Lemon Haze

Our second haze cultivar, but our fourth heavy-hitting favorite, Super Lemon Haze is famous for its focus-inducing effects and citrusy flavor. You may think this cultivar is dripping in citrusy d-Limonene, but terpinolene actually plays a much larger role in the tart, sweet, citrusy, peppery aroma of Super Lemon Haze. Its cerebral effects are balanced by a relaxing body buzz that makes this strain perfect for daily errands, creative downtime, or even an intense gym session.

Terpinolene Dominant Terpene Strain Profiles

Born from thousands of hours of research and development, the Signature Series represents a brand new age of authenticity in cannabis. Made in full collaboration with the cultivator themselves - this is the definitive Jack Herer.


Super Lemon Haze has a zesty lemon aroma that’s candy-like without overpowering the senses. The subtlest hint of pine sets off the flavor and makes it a heady solution for daytime errands, hikes, or afternoon lulls.

The name may sound ominous, but Durban Poison is the dank wake-n-bake option you’ve been waiting for. The sweet pine and citrus provides a jolt of cerebral stimulation that heightens the senses and sharpens focus.

Notorious for its ability to send users deep into the spirit realm, Ghost Train Haze does so in an amazingly gentle fashion. Hailing from a cross between Neville’s Wreck and Ghost OG, this sativa is best for veteran stoners.

Terpene Isolate

This abundant terpene occurs in the tea tree, lilac, cumin, nutmeg, and apples. Terpinolene has woody overtones with a hint of citric sweetness. Usually the most prominent terpene in Hazes.
