In respectful observance of National Donut Day, Marijuana.com brings you a delicious list of strains with the sweetest terpene profiles. And for the cannabis-curious with foodie streaks, we’ve included a handful of complementary ingredients prominently featured in doughnuts of all shapes and sizes to make your National Donut Day (hell, call it a month) flavorfully unforgettable.
This strain is known for its citrusy lilt and sweet California heritage. A classic Sativa that tastes like vacation in tropical paradise, Tangie is popular along the United States’ west coast, making an occasional appearance in the heart of Arizona. This pleasant Sativa’s caryophyllene, humulene, and pinene terpenoids coalesce as a cool breeze, layering your every taste bud with an energizing cascade of orange flavoring upon which you can build — with doughnuts. Top this fruity wonderland with doughnuts featuring maple glazing, caramel, almonds, or dark chocolate for a taste of heaven.
A world-renowned Indica, Blueberry glides across your taste buds like a calming evening mist shot through with blue beams of moonlight. In this land, relaxation and happiness are law, the roads are paved in blueberry creme, and student debt doesn’t exist. Nothing tastes sweeter. Pair this nighttime delight with doughnuts that feature almonds, oatmeal, maple, and cream cheese to experience the real midnight train to Georgia.
Like morning light ever so slowly unfurling its way across a meadow lost in a sprawling pine grove, Chocolope reveals within users a fresh and catching happiness. Its pinene, limonene, and linalool weave together a galvanizing tapestry of chocolate coffee that combines all too well with doughnuts featuring banana, orange, or hazelnuts. This renowned Sativa is cannabis’ take on the classic pick-me-up, or tiramisu.
Grape Ape hits like a grape-flavored epiphany that melts into a full-bodied glaze to relax and inspire. The moment you open a dram of this potent Indica, everyone in the room will know. It reeks of purple. With myrcene and caryophyllene doing the heavy lifting, this strain stands out among the crowd as a prime complement. In celebration of National Donut Day, toke up with some Grape Ape while chowing down on doughnuts featuring hazelnuts, honey, pecans, or white chocolate.
Candyland tastes like it reads: a veritable land made of candy. This bud is transcendent in its flavor profile; it simultaneously channels nostalgia and that kid-in-a-candy-store feeling to result in cerebral uplift potent enough to turn any frown upside down.. Its terpinolene, humulene, and caryophyllene terpenoids result in an unequaled heaven-sent fruitiness, which pairs perfectly with almonds, brown sugar, coconut, or macadamia nuts.
This blissful Sativa marries a citrus tang with an undercurrent of candy-infused sweetness that results in joyous euphoria. A little Lemon Haze to the dome feels like living within a smile. Its caryophyllene, terpinolene, and humulene work together to concoct an experience unlike any other. Lemon Haze is a Montana sunrise in cannabis form — beams of cool, amber light playing across cornfields enshrouded in a morning mist, and you haven’t a care in the world. Treat yourself to doughnuts sporting chestnuts, caramel, dark chocolate, or coconut for an unforgettable flavor combination worthy of a Michelin star.
