Fruity weed strains may taste like berries, mangoes, grapes and more because of their terpene profiles.

Feast your eyes on these fruity weed strains that pair amazing flavors with pleasurable effects for a fun new experience. Varying flavors in cannabis strains result from the synergistic effects of terpenes and flavonoids, which are not psychoactive by themselves, but provide health benefits and additional supportive effects. When weed strains taste and smell like berries, mangoes, cherries, grapes or bananas, it’s due to a complex interaction of various terpenes and flavonoids acting synergistically.

Providing a basis for pairing cannabis with food and wine, chefs are exploring the possibilities for infusing terpenes into dishes with complimentary flavors. Enjoy these fruity strains alongside the bounty of California’s seasonal abundance of strawberries, stone fruits like peaches, cherries and plums, and tropical fruits like mango, papaya and bananas. Visit the Santa Cruz Farmer’s Market for inspiration after gathering some fruity, flavorful cannabis flowers from KindPeoples Dispensary in Santa Cruz, and get cooking. As you explore pairing fruity cannabis strains with complementary local harvest, we bet you’ll be able to pick up on flavor nuances that you wouldn’t typically discern.
