Why Does Cannabis Smell like Citrus?


When shopping for cannabis, follow your nose and select the variety that smells most appealing to you. Cannabis products with a strong citrus aroma are among our most popular items, with flavors like orange, grapefruit, lemon, and lime expressed in various flowers, vape carts, extracts and edibles.

Different types of cannabis smell like citrus due to the presence of limonene, a terpene that’s also found in high quantities in lemon peels. Present throughout many different types of plants, terpenes are aromatic oils that imbue cannabis cultivars with their characteristic aromas and flavors. Beyond just making cannabis smell and taste nice, terpenes also possess medicinal effects for the mind and body.

Scientific studies show promising results, with limonene improving mood by boosting levels of serotonin and dopamine in the brain. This citrus-smelling terpene also has proven antibacterial and antioxidant powers.
