Ever wonder why cannabis strains have different smells and tastes? We’ve got a one-word answer: terpenes. They’re the organic compounds that help protect plants against predators in the wild, giving each strain a distinct effect and flavor profile.

Sounds simple, right? That’s an overall decent overall summary, but it goes a bit deeper than that.

Alpha Pinene. Beta Caryophyllene. 🤯🧐😶 ene. What does each one do? And which one is right for you? With so many different types out there, it can be intimidating to figure out where to start.

Maybe you’re someone who’s very much into the science behind it all and knows every kind of terpene there is -— or maybe you’re someone who just wants to have a good time without sweating the small stuff. We get it.

That’s why we’ve simplified the process by standardizing our prerolls around dominant terpene profiles, translating them into six unique, California-inspired strains.

So that you can easily find what’s right for you—and enjoy a consistent experience every time. It’s all a part of our mission to make cannabis less complicated. Here’s a guide to get you started:
