You’ll also get a skunky, hazy vibe, an earthy, herbal tingle on the exhale, which comes courtesy of the legendary marijuana terpene, myrcene. Also involved in the mix are the piney vibes of pinene and the floral hints of linalool, ensuring a complex, nuanced flavour and aroma that combines to create something exceptional.
