Terpinolene is known for its woody smell, but it may give off a citrus scent. It may give a slightly different aroma depending on where it’s found. Terpinolene is found in lilac, apples, tea trees, sage, nutmeg, and rosemary. It is multidimensional; you can’t pick it out like a limonene or citrus peel scent, but you know it’s there in the background, contributing to the general earthy aroma. For example, an apple doesn’t smell like a tea tree, so if you were handed a high-Terpinolene blunt, it wouldn’t smell like apples. Want to learn more on what cannabis terpenes are?
