Less experienced consumers might not understand the pleasures that can be obtained from the more natural benefits of the marijuana plant, but most enthusiasts recognize the importance of a delightfully flavored strain and all that it has to offer. While every person has a unique set of likes and dislikes when it comes to smell and tastes, one of the most popular marijuana strain aromas is gas.

Though it is a common misconception that all weed strains smell the same when they are growing or burnt, the truth is that each marijuana strain boasts a unique chemical profile of elements including cannabinoids and terpenes. Each strain will produce a different quantity and type of marijuana terpene, and what is included in this fragrance mixture significantly impacts that taste and smell of a marijuana plant, and its derived products.

What terpene smells like gas?

Some weed strains produce a vast array of terpenes, but the one that is responsible for the sour diesel scent that so many of us know and love is called limonene. That isn’t to say that some marijuana plant strains that produce significant amounts of other terpene elements won’t also smell like gas, but it is the most commonly found ingredient in the potent concoction that results in a gassy scent.

Benefits of limonene

If you love the sweet smell of gas flavored marijuana strains, then you are not alone, and whether you realize it or not, it may be the quieter less noticeable benefits that are leading you to enjoy it so much. Most consumers are aware of the more talked about effects and benefits that come from cannabinoids like THC and CBS, but few know of the powerful influence of this marijuana terpene.

  • Improved mood
  • Relieves reflux and heartburn
  • Antibacterial properties
  • Reduces stress
  • Anti-fungal properties
  • Improves the absorption rate of other terpenes and cannabinoids
  • Anti-tumor
  • High in protein
