California is no stranger to cannabis, but how much does the Golden State know about terpenes?

These chemical compounds featured in hundreds of plants are responsible for the fruity, tangy, and pungent taste and smell of cannabis. While there’s still a lot to learn about terpenes, you can start your own exploration by trying out different products that feature the ones you like most. The best way to begin is by discovering California cannabis products rich in terpenes.

Did you know that only 1 in 10 strains is terpinolene-dominant? You have to make unique choices to find this terpene, which is known to give strains a fresh scent and believed to have uplifiting effects.

Claybourne’s Afghani Bullrider is a THC-rich strain with unique relaxing qualities, known for couchlock without making you want to fall asleep. With 1.08% terpinolene, its herbaceous scent is sure to stand out to anyone trying to train their nose to identify terpenes, whether you’re a casual cannabis connoisseur or a trained budtender.


Aromatic pinene is found in, you guessed it, many varieties of pine trees. It may be useful for inflammation and pain relief.

Coastal Sun’s Banjo cultivar is a potent pinene hybrid created from cross-breeding Boost and Tangelo. Packing a whopping 4.5% total terpenes, pinene makes up 2% of the terpene profile of this strain. Users often say that Banjo has a slow-body melt effect that makes it perfect for use throughout the day for life’s aches, pains, and annoyances.


The floral aroma of linalool is almost instantly recognizable in the lavender plant. It is believed that linalool helps support the immune system and provides calming effects.

CBDistillery’s lavender vanilla vape cartridge is a non-psychoactive option for those that want to experience the scent of linalool, without the high.
