Smells, Tastes, and Dominant Terpenes

As prevailing terpenes, myrcene, linalool, and phellandrene determine the aroma profile and are responsible for the flavors.

Effects and Benefits

The high starts with an immediate onset of uplifting euphoria that fills smokers with tingly senses. People experience arousal and are fueled with energy. Some of them may have fits of giggles.

Multiple therapeutic benefits in combination with a high THC concentration make the Ebony & Ivory strain a popular pick for individuals who fight with:

  • Migraines
  • Lack of appetite
  • Depression
  • Stress
  • Fatigue

This weed is commonly used for its mentally calming effects; however, not everyone can handle it. Since the main focus is on the positive results produced by Ebony & Ivory, potential side effects are rarely discussed; however, insane high may cause significant negatives such as:
