Forbidden Fruit Terpene Profile
The most dominant isolate in this profile is alpha-humulene. If you enjoy hoppy beers, however, you’re probably already familiar with this isolate. Also known as alpha-caryohphyllene, it’s found in large quantities in hops (which is why it may remind you of your favorite IPA). It’s also found in plants like coriander and sage, and has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.
When it comes to cannabis, alpha-humulene is normally present in much smaller amounts. For example, GSC has less than 10%, Super Lemon Haze has around 11%, and Diablo OG has between 5-10%. Forbidden Fruit, however, is one of the most alpha-humulene dense strains available with anywhere between 20-50%.
Beta-Caryophyllene makes up another big chunk of this terpene profile and is responsible for its powerful body relaxation effects. Found in black pepper, cloves, hops, and even cinnamon, this isolate lends Forbidden Fruit a subtle earthy kick. It’s also one of the only non-cannabinoids that can activate cannabinoid receptors in the brain. This makes its anti-inflammatory and anxiolytic properties very effective.

If you were wondering when the fruity flavors will make an appearance, D-Limonene is here with a dose of citrusy goodness. This mouth-puckering isolate is sweet, sour, and found in fruits like lemons, limes, and oranges. It’s one of the most common terpenes in nature and lends Forbidden Fruit effects like mood elevation, energy, and anti-inflammation.

Delicate floral notes reminiscent of roses, oranges, or even apple blossoms come from the isolate Linalool. This delicate terpene can be found in hops, basil, some mints, and obviously lavender. It’s powerful sedative qualities are part of the reason linalool-dense plants are commonly used as sleep-aids. Additionally, Myrcene lends tropical notes of mangos, cloves, and even earthy pepper.

While there are over thirty other isolates that make up this complex blend, these five are the main contributors to its unique flavor, aroma, and effects. Speaking of effects…
Forbidden Fruit Effects
In case you’re unaware, something really beautiful happens when you combine terpenes and cannabis. Yes, a potent THC isolate will have powerful psychoactive effects. But what about specific effects like relaxation, focus, or even creativity? Those unique effects actually come from terpenes! So, if you love the way Forbidden Fruit makes you feel, you can thank terpenes.
The effects of Forbidden Fruit terpenes are particularly interesting. The actual cannabis strain tends to be an indica-leaning hybrid with heavy couch-lock effects. However, when you experience the terpenes without any of the cannabinoids, the effects are a bit more energetic.
The full cannabis-infused Forbidden Fruit experience, however, is all about vacation vibes and good times. Those energetic effects we mentioned a moment ago transform into uplifting waves of euphoria that leave you feeling mentally stimulated and happy. Over time, however, you’ll notice a heavy, buzzing sensation throughout your body that promotes deep relaxation.
While the flavor is uplifting and mentally stimulating, isolates like beta-caryophyllene, linalool, and myrcene make this strain more appropriate for winding down. As your mind unwinds and your body gets comfortable, you may find yourself comfortably dozing off.
How Can YOU Use Forbidden Fruit Terpenes?
Our botanically sourced Forbidden Fruit terpenes are perfect for both cannabis and non-cannabis products. Obviously, combining this blend with cannabinoids will pump up the effects. However, non-cannabis products seeking to promote an uplifting mood that’s still relaxing will greatly benefit from this blend.
While it’s no surprise that Forbidden Fruit is a hit in vape products, its flavor and effects make it applicable in several industries.
For example, we’re desperately hoping someone will manufacture a beer infused with Forbidden Fruit. Any beverage looking for complex fruity flavors with uplifting effects will benefit from this blend (teas, sports drinks, energy drinks, etc.). Beer, however, is a natural choice. This profile already has a hefty dose of alpha-humulene, so it will blend seamlessly with a beer that needs an infusion of subtle fruity flavor.
We’re also imagining Forbidden Fruit-infused hard candies, candles, personal care, you name it! This is one of those aromas that could be just as successful in the food & beverage industry as it would be in the skincare industry. Its flavor is complex yet undeniably fruity, and its aroma is absolutely mouthwatering. What can we say? Forbidden Fruit is just an all-around popular and practical terpene profile.
