While you might assume that super citrusy strains have tons of Limonene, that’s not always the case. Super Lemon Haze, for example, has dominant terpenes Beta-Caryophyllene, Terpinolene, and Alpha-Humulene. But what if you specifically want to sample strains with high amounts of Limonene?
That’s what we’re covering today! Whether you just want to enjoy the aroma or whether you’re looking to experience the effects of D-Limonene (Psst! Check Out 7 Powerful D-Limonene Benefits), these strains won’t disappoint.

Which Cannabis Strains Have LOTS of Limonene?
London Pound Cake
As a descendent of Sunset Sherbet, it’s no surprise that this strain has a citric, dessert-like flavor. The initial taste is that of sour lemons, berries, and pine while the aftertaste is reminiscent of vanilla cookies. The dominant isolates in this terpene strain profile are D-Limonene, Myrcene, and Beta-Caryophyllene. Expect to feel calm, uplifted, and moderately social using London Pound Cake.
Yet another descendent of Sunset Sherbet (crossed with Thin Mint GSC), Gelato is smoother and less citric than London Pound Cake. The tang of berries is noticeable, but there are also floral notes woven through this blend that create something softer with subtle notes of dough. The dominant isolates in this terpene strain profile are Limonene, Myrcene, and Beta-Caryophyllene, so expect potent body relaxation and euphoric cerebral effects.
As a cross between Larry OG and Granddaddy Purple, Purple Punch can be stimulating and relaxing or sedating and calming (depending on how much you use). The flavor is tropical and berry forward, yet herbal and sweet. Some even describe it as a grape Kool-Aid flavor! Unique ratios of isolates Limonene, Myrcene, and Beta-Caryophyllene give this terpene strain profile a versatile array of effects that can be both stimulating and calming.
White Fire OG
Also known as Wifi OG, this strain came about by crossing Fire OG and The White. The aroma is earthy with notes of diesel and citrus, while the flavor is a bit more on the spicy side. While it has a relatively smooth finish, there can often be notes of pepper on the back end that hit surprisingly hard. Dominant isolates D-Limonene, Myrcene, and Beta-Caryophyllene give this terpene strain profile a hefty dose of cerebral clarity and relaxation.
As a cross between Tangie and Lemon Skunk, it should be no surprise that this strain is an explosion of citrus flavors—lemons, oranges, and obviously clementine. Dominant isolates Limonene, Beta-Caryophyllene, Myrcene, and Linalool give this terpene strain profile the perfect balance of sweet and citrus. Lovers of Clementine recommend it for early wake’n bake sessions or for an afternoon pick-me-up to power through the day.
As a cross between BC Kush and Grapefruit, this strain 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 isolates D-Limonene, Beta-Caryophyllene, Myrcene, and Linalool give it a citrus-fueled flavor along with potent uplifting and calming effects.
Bred from Clementine and Purple Punch, Mimosa has a fruit-forward aroma that’s sweetly citric with subtle earthy flavors. Powered by dominant isolates D-Limonene, Beta-Caryophyllene, Myrcene, and Linalool, this terpene strain profile is truly mouthwatering and will leave you feeling euphoric, energized, and focused.
When someone says that OG Kush is dank, that’s putting it lightly. Its heavy skunk scent is lifted up by sharp notes of lemon zest, creating an in-your-face gasoline experience. Dominant isolates Limonene, Beta-Caryophyllene, and Myrcene infuse this terpene strain profile with effects that are euphoric with a calming body buzz. Many say that this particular strain helps creativity, conversation, and relaxation.
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, and mildly earthy with a pungent citric finish. Dominant isolates D-Limonene, Myrcene, and Beta-Caryophyllene will elevate your mood, melt stress away, and you might even notice fewer aches and pains.
Super Sour Diesel
If you’re a fan of Sour Diesel and Super Silver Haze, you’ll LOVE Super Sour Diesel. Like any diesel strain, you can expect a slight taste of fuel. Accompanying that gas, you’ll notice the delicious notes of citrus, wood, and pine. Dominant isolates D-Limonene, Myrcene, and Beta-Pinene give this terpene strain profile some seriously potent effects—mood elevation, euphoria, relaxation, and even a boost in creativity.
