Animal Mintz Terpene Strain Profile | Get to Know Your Favorite Strain

Animal Mintz balances intense aromas like mint and gas while serving up a heady dose of euphoria and relaxation. Discover the terpenes that contribute to its legendary complexity.

If you’re a fan of strains like Animal Cookies or SinMint Cookies, you’re going to love this giggle-inducing cultivar. Animal Mintz is a beautifully balanced bud with euphoric notes of mint, cookie dough, and a gassy finish that will quickly send you to sedation nation.

While there’s some debate about its origins, depending on who you ask, nearly everyone can agree that it packs a punch with its potent aroma and impressive cannabinoid profile. 

Before jumping in too deep, we want to remind everyone that we offer both botanical and cannabis-derived terpenes. We work hard to isolate the specific terpene profiles of popular cultivars so both cannabis consumers and non-cannabis consumers can enjoy and benefit from them. 

Read on and discover the terpenes that give Animal Mintz its potent aroma and unforgettable effects.

Animal Mintz Terpene Strain Profile

The Animal Mintz aroma starts with a wave of mint that’s powerfully cooling. Dessert-like genetics are noticeable in the sweet notes of cookie dough, and while it may sound overwhelming, potent notes of gas finish it off. On their own, these aromas can be overpowering. However, Animal Mintz manages to be pungent, refreshing, and satisfying while balancing all of this intensity.

None of that would be possible, however, without dominant terpenes d-Limonene, beta-Pinene, and alpha-Pinene.

While d-Limonene is more often associated with citrus-forward aromas, this isolate plays an important role in the Animal Mintz aroma. On its own, d-Limonene is sweet and sour and found in fruits like lemons, limes, and oranges. It’s a particularly common terpene in nature and it infuses Animal Mintz with effects like mood elevation and euphoria.

Oftentimes, people simply refer to these pine-forward isolates as “Pinene.” It’s important to note, however, that while beta-Pinene and alpha-Pinene are similar, they have important differences.

As enantiomers, beta-Pinene and alpha-Pinene contain all the same chemical atoms but their structures are an exact mirror image. Yes, they’re both commonly found in conifer trees like pine, but their aromas are just different enough that they each add unique elements to the Animal Mintz aroma.

Alpha-Pinene contributes to the “mint” element of Animal Mintz with its turpentine-like notes of pine and wood. It also influences some of the intense cerebral effects this strain is known for. On the other hand, beta-Pinene adds a slightly camphoraceous element which contributes to the cooling effect.

While there are over thirty other isolates that make up this complex blend, these three are some of the main contributors to its unique flavor, aroma, and effects. Speaking of effects…

Animal Mintz Terpene Strain Profile Effects

As we mentioned before, we craft both botanical and cannabis-derived terpene profiles. That means everyone, regardless of whether they choose to use cannabis products, can enjoy them. However, it’s important to note that something really interesting happens when you combine terpenes and cannabis

While cannabinoids like THC are responsible for psychoactive effects, terpenes dictate specific effects. Without terpenes, THC will still get you high, but you won’t experience the variety of flavors or the different effects that strains have.

That’s why two cultivars with the exact same cannabinoid levels may have different effects. One may promote stimulation and make you want to clean your entire house, while the other may be more sedating and give you couch lock. Bottom line? If you love how Animal Mintz makes you feel, you can thank the beautiful combination of terpenes and cannabinoids.

While its aroma is undeniably powerful and unique, the intense effects of this cultivar are what keep people coming back for more. If you use terms like Indica and Sativa, this strain falls securely into the Hybrid category (although these terms don’t actually have anything to do with a cultivar’s effects).

Heady cerebral effects will be the first thing you notice, and it can often take the form of euphoria and an inclination to be more social. Don’t let that fool you though. The Animal Mintz effects quickly transform into an intense body relaxation that’s peaceful, sedating, and tends to end with you drooling on the couch.

How Can YOU Use Animal Mintz Terpene Strain Profile

With such transformative effects and pungent aroma, the Animal Mintz terpene profile would be a versatile addition to a variety of products. In addition, our botanically sourced Animal Mintz terpene strain profile is excellent for both cannabis and non-cannabis products.

The most obvious answer is to infuse distillate. Perfect on its own or added to other products, an Animal Mintz-infused distillate would be a simple, cost-effective way to give your consumers the aroma, flavor, and effects of this strain.

With that in mind, it also makes sense to use Animal Mintz in a variety of food and beverage products. From minty teas and functional beverages to snacks or edibles, the aroma, flavor, and effects of this strain would be a treat for consumers looking for a hit of relaxing euphoria.
