Wander into the Garden of Eden and indulge in its earthly delights. Let the serpent tempt you with a hit of the Forbidden Fruit Hemp Strain, and you will never want to leave. In the early stories, they do not tell us which fruit tempted Eve so much. While many people talk about apples, we want to believe in another kind of Forbidden Fruit. This sinfully delicious strain will burst your senses with its colorful nuggets, sweet smell, fruity flavor, and relaxing high. The Forbidden Fruit hemp strain is a 70/30 dominant Indica that sports a CBD content of 17%. The high CBD content will have powerful yet soothing effects on you, uplifting your spirit.
AppearanceThe dense, heavy nuggets of the Forbidden Fruit hemp strain will greet you with a bright lime green color streaked with orange and yellow tendrils, glistening with trichomes that will make you think of drops of morning dew over freshly picked produce. Close your eyes and take a whiff. Forbidden Fruit’s aroma will transport you to a tropical garden full of sweet, ripe fruits, ready to be bitten. Let your mind wander over the refreshing citrus and the sweet berries that will make your mouth water while expecting a tempting savory treat. Take a bud between your fingers and feel the stickiness of the trichomes that cover it. Open it and hear the resin cracking between the multicolored flower leaves, where you will find streaks of pink, orange, and the occasional purple.
TerpenesBesides cannabis, many plants secrete these aromatic oils to repel predators and attract pollinators. Cannabis strains can develop up to a hundred different terpenes, which give weed varieties their characteristic smell and taste. When we consume weed, the terpenes in that particular variety will also have distinctive effects on us, ranging from relaxing to focusing. Many terpenes have medicinal properties, making hemp strains a new and exciting part of the health industry. The dominant terpenes we will find in the Forbidden Fruit hemp strain are myrcene, limonene, and caryophyllene.
- Myrcene: it is the most common terpene found in cannabis. We can also find it in mango and lemongrass. Myrcene gives an earthy, fruity, clove-like aroma and is responsible for the overall relaxing effects of the strains that contain it. Additionally, it also activates cannabinoid absorption in the brain.
- Limonene: the name and the aroma of this terpene make us think of citrus fruits. And we are right. We can find limonene in orange and lemon rinds, from where it uplifts our spirits. Limonene appears as a frequent additive in cosmetics and cleaning products, acting as an anti-fungal and antibacterial agent. Strains with a high limonene content are the best for reducing stress and anxiety levels.
- Caryophyllene: this is the only terpene that also acts as a cannabinoid, activating our endocannabinoid system. We find caryophyllene in cloves, black pepper, cinnamon, basil, and rosemary. The cannabinoid action of caryophyllene gives it analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties.
