5 Myrcene Dominant Cannabis Strains

Myrcene, or beta-Myrcene, is found in hops, lemongrass, mangoes, and—oh yeah—cannabis! Read on and discover 5 myrcene-dominant cannabis cultivars.

If you’re a fan of hoppy beers, then you might already be familiar with the terpene isolate Myrcene (or beta-Myrcene). Admittedly, Myrcene is found in lots of plants, from hops and lemongrass to mangoes and basil. Oh yeah, and it’s VERY common in cannabis. This terpene isolate has an aroma that’s uniquely earthy and woody, with distinct notes of cloves, cardamom, fruit, and musk. 

While you won’t be able to sample its distinct aroma by simply grabbing your nearest ripe mango (Psst! You’ll have to get your hands on the isolated form of this terp to do that), you can teach your nose to pick it out by sampling cannabis cultivars that are dominant in Myrcene.

Discover five cannabis cultivars that are myrcene dominant and experience its unique aroma and sensorial effects.

Blue Dream

If we’re talking about Myrcene-dominant cannabis cultivars, it just makes sense to start with Blue Dream. This iconic bud is the blissful combination of Blueberry and Haze, and it’s known for promoting an inspirational mood boost. 

One of the best parts? That undeniable sweet berry flavor! Myrcene contributes a slightly spicy and earthy element, making Blue Dream a fan favorite among cannabis consumers with a variety of preferences. 

Orange Soda

Known for imparting sensorial effects that are both relaxing and stimulating, Orange Soda is perfect for laid-back weekends spent grilling, lounging on the beach, or grabbing brunch. 

As a cross between citrus-forward Tangie and Grandma’s Sugar Cookies, this myrcene-dominant cultivar manages to stay grounded with earthy goodness while citrus keeps the aroma bright, fresh, and oh-so-sweet. 

Dynasty OG

As a descendant of OG Kush, Dynasty OG is loud, gassy, and packed with dank flavor. Plus, the sensorial effects are beautifully balanced. The intense body relaxation has been described as “comfortably numb,” while the cerebral effects are subtly stimulating and creative.

The aroma, however, is anything but subtle. Myrcene helps weave together potent elements of pine, citrus, and gassy earth. 

Hippie Crasher

As a cross between Kush Mints and Wedding Crasher, it’s nearly impossible to ignore the aroma of Hippie Crasher. And honestly, why would you want to? This complex array of dank aromatic notes includes sweet berries, nutty cookies, and even a hint of mint. And without Myrcene, this funky cultivar wouldn’t have that important dose of sweetness or even its elusive hint of mint.

While the body relaxation is intense and tingly, it also comes with a euphoric lift that will leave you feeling creative and social. At least, that’s how you’ll feel until the couch lock fully takes over. And trust us, it will.

Outer Space

Yes, there are Myrcene-dominant cultivars with loud, in-your-face aromas. Outer Space, however, is a lesson in delicate balance. Descended from Island Sweet Skunk and Trinity, this cultivar starts with delicately soft woody notes that find harmony with light skunk elements. 

Subtle hints of citrus and berries add just the right amount of sweetness for a cultivar that’ll have you feeling energized and inspired for your next adventure.

Myrcene-Dominant Terpene Profiles

After years of searching, we’ve discovered the best version of this cultivar and modeled it from a particularly juicy sauce. This invigorating blend of sweet blueberries captures the sexiest, most iconic version of Blue Dream.

 

Dynasty OG has inherited all of the authoritative dankness of its OG Kush lineage. Regal elements of pine, citrus, and earth merge with loud gassy aromas to inspire loyalty, relaxation, and respect for the OG.

Modeled after a truly wacky rosin, Hippie Crasher is exotically fruity and exquisitely dank. As a cross between Kush Mints and Wedding Crasher, with 370 different aroma compounds, there's a lot going on under the hood.

Sure, astronauts travel to low Earth orbit, but Outer Space is a whole different story. Soft woody aromas combine with surprisingly light notes of skunk. Subtle hints of citrus and berries infuse it with a delicate sweetness.

A cross between Tangie and Grandma's Sugar cookies, Orange Soda is earthy, citrusy, and sweet. This strain is one of those pairings that go along with an active, but not overactive day. Think grilling, not grueling.

Terpene Isolate

beta-Myrcene is a prevalent terpene in hops, mango, bay leaves, lemongrass, and eucalyptus. The flavor is a strong sweetness with minty balsam and a vegetal leafy feel.
