Cannabis Strains With a Mint Flavor

Ever had cannabis with a sweet taste and minty exhale? Let's explore why. Terpenes in the flowers create the taste and aroma. Discover mint-flavored strains here.

Cannabis Strains With a Mint Flavor

Odds are you've had cannabis that left a subtly sweet taste on your tongue and a minty feel on exhale. Are you curious why? Let’s explore what gives cannabis its subtle sweetness and refreshing feel.

It’s common knowledge that the taste and aroma of cannabis are primarily due to the terpenes in its flowers. Recent studies of other strongly scented molecules in cannabis have proven that the presence of volatile sulfur compounds (which are present in garlic, hops, and, yes, skunk spray) is what gives cannabis its signature skunky smell.

These studies show that those primary terpenes aren’t the only chemical compounds that influence the flavor and fragrance of cannabis strains. The secondary ones in its flowers also play a big part in taste and mouthfeel. One common secondary terpene in cannabis is phellandrene. This terpene is only found in trace amounts in cannabis but is known for its minty, citrusy, and peppery taste. Secondary terpenes like thymol, estragole, and borneol also have a strong minty flavor.
