Flavors and Aromas

Overall, the Gold Leaf weed strain is insanely rich in multiple chemical compounds that determine its flavor characteristics and effects, and its terpene qualities stand out above average. It features a glorious citrus aroma, which can be detected just upon opening the bag. The valencene terpene delivers this smell. As soon as stoners start smoking, the scent intensifies so that they can discern lemon and lime notes brought by bisabolol. The aroma gives you a general idea of what to expect from the taste. The flavor is sour and includes floral notes as affected by myrcene.
