Humulene 101

Humulene: What is it?

Taking a whiff of a strain high in humulene brings out the herbaceous, skunky aroma we can all recognize as high quality bud. That said, humulene can also smell like a floral bouquet or a deep citrus aroma depending on the strain you grab. The perfect terpene to help relax your mind and improve your mood, look for nugs that are super skunky with hints of citrus and flowers.
