Appearance and Aroma
Orange Gelato’s terpene profile leans heavily on caryophyllene and limonene, two fairly common cannabis terpenes. It gets most of its citrus aroma and taste from limonene, while caryophyllene gives it a slightly zesty flavour. However, it also boasts a rare terpene – humulene, a bitter-tasting flavonoid that infuses a hoppy taste into the strain. These molecules combine to create a fresh, sweet, creamy flavour and texture that make Orange Gelato a dream to smoke.
