What Are a Few of the Sweetest Cannabis Strains?


For many years, cannabis enthusiasts sought strains based on the desired effects. But more and more consumers are looking for more in their marijuana flower and products, such as their taste and aroma. While many cannabis users enjoy an earthy or skunky smoke, some prefer their marijuana to taste a bit sweeter. The effects of cannabis are a result of THC and CBD profiles, as well as what type of marijuana it is, whether it is an indica or a sativa, etc. However, the taste and aroma come from the plant’s terpenes. The most commone terpenes in sweet and fruity strains are limonene, myrcene, and pinene. Here are three popular cannabis strains with a more candied flavor.

Cherry Pie

Cherry Pie is an indica dominant hybrid strain that is aptly named. Users say it smells like sweetly sour cherry pie, with a taste that is reminiscent of berries with hints of fresh tree fruit. The THC content of Cherry Pie is typically around 16%. Consumers who have tried it say the effects are felt rather quickly. Users are left feeling a balanced high that is euphoric and cerebral, while still relaxing. Cherry Pie’s parent strains are F1 Durb and Granddaddy Purple, and the dominant terpene is myrcene. 

Honey Bananas 

Honey Bananas is a hybrid strain that was created by crossing Honey Boo Boo with Strawberry Banana. It was named for the sweet and sticky resinous coating on the buds of its plants. The fragrance is a strong and sweet banana, and the taste is similar to honey. The THC content of Honey Bananas is around 21%, making it a potent strain. Users report feeling happy and uplifted, although often with a bit of dry mouth. As with many other sweet strains, the most notable terpene in its profile is myrcene.

Black Cherry Soda

Black Cherry Soda is a dynamic hybrid strain that got its name from the dark purple buds it produces. It also reportedly tastes much like a sweet, dark cherry soda. Black Cherry Soda smells sweet, like cherries and berries with undertones of earthy tea. The THC level is around 21%, and the primary terpene is myrcene. Black Cherry Soda was likely created by crossing Cherry AK-47, Blackberry, Ortega, and Airborne G13. Those who have tried it report feeling simultaneously happy, relaxed, and creative.
