What Are Terpene Profile Cannabis Seeds?
What exactly are terpenes, anyway?
You may have heard or read the word ‘terpenes’… but what exactly are they, and why are they important? Well, terpenes are aromatic compounds and they’re found in all sorts of different plants, although they’re most often associated with cannabis. The primary reason for this association is that marijuana contains terpenes in abundance, and they have a significant impact on the overall experience you get from any given strain. Terpenes are one of the main reasons for the distinct smells and tastes you get from different cannabis plants.
Some of the most common terpenes found in marijuana are:
Caryophyllene, which is often found in Indica strains, and is said to be responsible for delivering a relaxing, soporific effect.
Limonene, a citrus-scented terpene that may provide a mood-uplifting energy boost, and is often found in lemony Sativa plants.
Myrcene, responsible for delivering a potent, full-body stone and most commonly found in Indica varieties – although certain Sativas may contain it too.
Pinene, also found in pine trees and certain herbs such as rosemary, basil and parsley. It’s thought to have anti-inflammatory properties, and may also bring a euphoric boost of energy and creativity.
Humulene, which gives hoppy beers their classic taste and aroma. It has a subtle woody, spicy and earthy scent, and is found in a wide variety of plants – it’s not unique to cannabis. It has been used for centuries in holistic Eastern medicinal practices.
Linalool, which is present in over 200 different plant species, and has a sweet, floral, woody and lavender fragrance.
Ocimene, which has a sweet herbal scent, and whose name derives from the Ancient Greek word for basil.
The strains in our Terpene Profile Seeds category are, in our opinion, some of the best-smelling and greatest-tasting varieties out there. Marijuana in general has a very distinctive scent, but if you sniff more closely, you’ll notice that each plant has its own unique nuance. With Terpene Profile Seeds, you can grow a beautiful specimen that’s fit for a connoisseur!
How Are Terpene Profile Marijuana Seeds Made?
It sounds remarkably simple, but a lot of thought goes into the process, believe us! Essentially, the master breeders take the strains with the most unusual bouquets and the most sought-after terpenes, and cross them to create something extra special.
You’ll notice that all of the seeds in our ‘Top 5’ list below are feminized, which means they’ll produce all-female plants 99% of the time. Unless you’re planning to breed, it’s unlikely you’ll need male plants anyway, since only the female buds are smokeable. Male plants can cause issues by accidentally pollinating the females, creating harsh, seeded buds.
Feminized seeds are made by forcing female plants to produce pollen, which is then used to pollinate further female plants. The outcome of this clever trick is that the resulting seeds will be ‘feminized’ – in other words, the plant will produce only female seeds from that point onwards (well, 99% of the time!)
Why Choose Terpene Profile Weed Seeds?
Terpenes are important for a number of different reasons, with the most obvious being their relation to taste and flavor. Some people prefer sweet-tasting strains, whereas others prefer things to be a little more pungent. Of course, there are other things to consider here such as discretion while growing – if you’re cultivating a seriously stinky crop then you may need to install a carbon activated filter to keep the operation incognito and avoid the sniffing noses of your neighbors.
Our Terpene Profile Seeds Category contains our top picks of aromatic and tasty marijuana varieties for maximum pleasure when consumed.
Other Benefits of Terpene Profile Seeds
You may have heard of the term ‘bag appeal’, which essentially refers to the aesthetic quality of the cannabis buds in the jar or bag. Certain buds – such as those that turn purple through cold shocking – are said to have increased bag appeal simply because they look more unusual, despite the fact their effects may be no different. For this reason, bag appeal is quite a controversial measurement tool when it comes to cannabis quality – and some people say it’s completely meaningless.
With this in mind, an increasing number of consumers are using their nostrils, not their eyes, as a guide when selecting which strain to try next. This is another reason why terpenes are so important – a plant with a unique terpene profile will really stand out from the crowd.
Growing Terpene Profile Seeds
You can grow Terpene Profile Seeds in the same way as you’d grow any other cannabis beans. Of course, you should read the detailed descriptions on the i49 website to get the very best out of the strain you have selected – and to ensure you can meet its basic requirements.
Growing indoors is a wise choice because it allows you to regulate crucial environmental factors in a way that’s not possible with an outdoor grow. Inside, you can finely tune the temperature, pH and humidity levels so that they are all within optimal range. Some people get great results from a so-called micro-grow which essentially means growing on a very small scale in any available space – this could be a broom cupboard, or a windowsill or even a wardrobe. Other gardeners have a dedicated ‘grow room’ kitted out with all the necessary equipment. The latter tends to bring better results in terms of yield and general plant health, but not everyone has the option to grow in this way. At i49, we’ve got you covered, regardless of which stage you’re at in your cannabis cultivation journey.
Outdoor growing can be great fun too – it lets you cultivate the plants just how Mother Nature intended. Of course, climate is a very important factor here. Some cannabis strains are much more resilient than others, but most require a warm, dry and sunny environment similar to Mediterranean regions, Southern Europe or California.
Where to Grow Terpene Profile Seeds
Growing Terpene Profile Seeds in organic soil is a great choice, because this medium is thought to enhance the flavor and aroma of the buds. Soil helps produce the dank, earthy, slightly woody scent that cannabis fans can sniff out at fifty paces.
If you wish, you can grow in a soilless setup (such as hydroponics) and still get great results. These types of systems tend to bring more vigorous and explosive growth, with is great when it comes to maximizing space and collecting a bumper harvest.
Buying Terpene Profile Seeds in the USA
The laws surrounding cannabis (and cannabis products) can be very complicated, and vary from state to state – so make sure you know which laws and restrictions apply to the area where you live.
There are a number of advantages to home-growing. You get complete control over the grow method, location, choice of medium and substrate, and so on, which is great for peace of mind when it comes to consuming the buds. Growing your own crop is also far cheaper than buying from dispensaries. Not only is it great fun and very rewarding, it’s also much easier than you might think.
If you are intending to grow at home, you should only purchase seeds from a reputable source such as i49.net.

Advanced Tips For Terpene Profile Seeds
The following tips will really help you bring out the terpenes in your cannabis crop. So if you’re feeling adventurous, why not give them a go?
Low Stress Training
By gently bending and manipulating the plant’s branches to encourage it to grow in a certain shape, you can create more main branches and make them more spaced out. The end result is a smaller, larger-yielding plant with very strong-smelling flowers.
Removing additional leaves will create more space in the canopy, which will work wonders for light-penetration. It also exposes the plant to a certain degree of stress, which can be very advantageous when it comes to boosting trichome production and overall terpene profile.
Believe it or not, choice of lighting can affect production of terpenes too. In the wild, plants naturally produce resin to protect themselves from the sun. You can recreate this effect by exposing your plants to UV-B lamps for a couple of weeks during flowering. With this method in play, the trichome and resin production can go through the roof.
Reducing the lights off temperature by just a few degrees will get the trichome-production machine working doubly fast, and you know what that means – a gorgeously flavorsome and delightful-smelling crop.
A couple of weeks before harvest, you can flush the plants with plenty of pure water to remove any excess nutrients they’re holding. Not only will this get rid of the unpleasant metallic taste that some nutrient solutions contain, it’ll also help ensure the natural terpenes take centre stage.

Interesting Facts About Terpene Profile Pot Seeds
The ‘Entourage Effect’
Many people think that a plant’s terpene profile affects only its flavor and aroma, but there’s an increasing amount of evidence that suggests the terpenes present in a cannabis plant can influence its effects. It’s thought that the presence of certain terpenes can potentially alter the way the body processes cannabinoids – which means that two plants may have identical levels of THC but may produce markedly different effects, depending on the terpenes that are also present. This is often referred to as the ‘entourage effect’.
Since the terpene profile is thought to have a direct influence on the effects of the THC and CBD compounds, you may want to do some further research on maximizing the terpene profile of your seeds.
Common Misspellings and Abbreviations
You may see ‘cannabis’ misspelled as ‘canabis’ and you may also see it referred to by different names such as ‘Mary Jane’, ‘Weed’, ‘Bud’, ‘Hemp’, ‘Ganja’ and ‘Dope’.
