8 Best Smelling Marijuana Strains

When most people think about the smell of marijuana, they usually imagine a skunky aroma. But avid cannabis users know that many strains not only don’t smell like a skunk, but actually have quite pleasant aromas.

Here are the eight best smelling marijuana strains:

1. Super Lemon Haze

It’s probably not hard to figure out what Super Lemon Haze smells like. It has a nice citrusy and sweet aroma, and the taste is also similar to a Lemonhead candy, but not quite as sharp. If you’re a fan of the smell of lemons, this is for you.

2. Lavender

No, the Lavender strain doesn’t smell exactly like lavender. It’s name is based off the pruple color of the strain’s leaves. But the strain does have a floral smell, as well as a little bit of spicy aroma as well. So even if you’re not a fan of the lavender scent, the strain may be right for you.

3. Bubble Gum

As a kid, you probably loved chewing bubble gum while playing outside with your friends. And now as an adult, you and your friends can enjoy the pleasantly sweet aroma of the Bubble Gum strain.

4. Trainwreck

Trainwreck is actually one of the best strains for dealing with a number of different medical conditions. But on top of that, it also has a great aroma that smells like a combination of sweet lemons and spicy pines.

5. Death Star

We’re not sure the Star Wars movies ever stated what the Death Star smelled like, so we’ll assume it’s similar to the marijuana strain of the same name. Death Star is on this list for people who like their marijuana to have a more pungent smell. But it balances that pungency with a nice earthy smell, so it’s not quite as strong as some other strains.

6. G13

The urban legend surrounding the G13 strain says the FBI, CIA and other intelligence agencies took the best marijuana from around the world in the late 1960’s and bred their own forms of hybrids to showcase the best qualities of each, and one of the products of those experiments was G13. While that’s probably not true, G13 does have a great aroma that combines earthy, pine and sweet scents together.

7. Granddaddy Purple

Granddaddy Purple is a very popular strain, and part of the reason for that is its great scent. It combines grape and berry aromas to produce a very pleasant smoking experience.

8. Strawberry Cough

As the name suggests, Strawberry Cough derives its name from the strong smell of fresh strawberries that is produced while smoking it. It will certainly produce the most pleasant cough of your lifetime.
