6 cannabis strains for people who love fall spice terpenes

Published on September 17, 2019 · Last updated September 14, 2022

Cannabis produces a bunch of flavor profiles that are surprising to the nose and mouth. Spiced terpenes are one of those flavors. Not to be confused with “Spice,” the synthetic marijuana, spiced terpenes in cannabis produce flavors reminiscent of black pepper, cloves, and cinnamon, amongst many other smells.

What are cannabis terpenes and what do they do?

These smells are typically associated with fall flavors, so with the season and weather finally curving that way, we took a look at a variety of cannabis strains with terpene profiles that spice lovers should seek out.

Jack Herer

Primary terpenes:Terpinolene, caryophyllene, pinene
Cannabinoi profile: THC-dominant (17-20% THC on average)

You can’t write about spiced cannabis strains without talking about Jack Herer. Jack is a sativa-dominant cultivar created by crossing a Haze hybrid with Northern Lights #5 and Shiva Skunk. Normally, it gives consumers a boost of cerebral stimulation, resulting in a clear-headed and blissful experience.

There are plenty of Jack Herer phenotypes across the world, each with its own attributes, terpene profiles, and effects; however, Jack most commonly expresses itself as terpinolene-dominant with fresh pine and peppery spice aromas and flavors.
