With each New Year comes resolutions and promises—deals we make with ourselves. If you seek a resolution for 2022, why not look to cannabis terpenes for inspiration? These organic compounds grant cannabis its varied flavors and tastes. Not only that, but they may have psychoactive and wellness effects of their own, leaving a footprint on how a strain makes you feel. In this post, we’ll check out our list of terps and the highest terpene-infused strains to try in 2022.

Energizing and Uplifting Terpenes

Some terpenes appear to have the ability to boost energy, focus, and concentration. Here are a few of the big ones.


One of the most common cannabis terpenes, limonene, kicks off our list. As you may have inferred from its name, this terp has an exceptionally citrusy flavor and aroma. That’s not limonene’s only trait, though. It may also have some beneficial properties.

According to researchers, limonene appears to increase alertness and wakefulness. If you find yourself dozing off, a dose of limonene may be just what the doctor ordered. You can find it in any citrus-forward strain, such as WiFi OG.


You can find this funky, pungent terpene in several plants worldwide. If you’re a fan of hops, you’ve likely encountered humulene’s earthy and herbal scent and flavor before. 

While Humulene’s reputation may emphasize its aromatic properties, those aren’t this cannabis terpene’s only traits. Notably, it appears as one of the active compounds in ginseng. Some research suggests that humulene may be responsible for the energizing “zing” typical of ginseng, and could also boost focus. If you’re looking for strains high in Humulene, don’t pass on Gorilla Glue #4.

Soothing and Relaxing Cannabis Terpenes 

While some terpenes are energizing, others demonstrate cozier effects. Below, we’ll list some of the terpenes with a more sedative and relaxing profile.

One of the most common cannabis terpenes, you can find Myrcene in a bevy of strains. Kush strains, such as Kashmir Kush, are usually chock full of Myrcene. Myrcene has a distinctly tropical vibe. It also appears in mangos, giving them their  delicious combination of sweet and pungent flavors.

This terpene may also be particularly adept at helping you chill out. Some studies have shown that Myrcene could be able to relax muscles and help improve sleep. 


Here’s another terpene with a soothing fragrance that can lull you into relaxation. You can find Linalool in strains like Do Si Dos, contributing its funky, flowery scent. Some research suggests that linalool may have sedative effects. As a result, cannabis strains with this terp could help calm stress and improve sleep quality.

This terpene appears in several non-cannabis sources. Lavender, along with some herbs such as oregano, feature Linalool prominently.

More Than Just Strains: Highest Terpene-Infused Products

So far, we’ve mentioned a few different strains that exhibit specific terpenes. You can also find terpenes in more than just flower! For example, you can also find extracts such as BHO, Rosin, and others with high-terpene concentrations.

Everyone was friendly and welcoming. I had specific questions and I was instantly helped. Definitely will be a return customer and would recommend to anyone. The flower is displayed very well with the ability to look at it with a microscope and smell it. All in all excellent experience!!

Great place! The staff is wonderful, friendly, attentive, knowledgeable, and welcoming. The products are well organized. I highly recommend this dispensary to anyone. Their only con is the parking which isn’t terrible but you may have to park on the street or across the street.

I’m telling you – delivery is the way to go! I use to take the drive every few weeks and sit in the lobby then only to have to wait in line to pay. Don’t get me wrong, everyone is always friendly and they are always quick and efficient.

My favorite part was the fact that they allow you to smell every strain before you buy it. This is a great way to find the perfect product for your needs. And as you know, “the nose knows best”
