Shortbread is an evenly balanced cannabis strain, but its exact lineage background is still unknown. It has a sweet and fruity aroma that resembles a mix of tropical fruits like pineapple with grapes and berries, but upon exhale, you can also taste pepper. This weed strain is a good pick for both beginners, and smoking veterans. Its CBD average is 1% and its THC average is 14%, so it's not nearly as potent as some other stains currently available on the market. Shortbread marijuana has the following terpene profile:

  • Limonene
  • Pinene
  • Caryophyllene
  • Myrcene

Limonene is the most abundant terpene and it is followed by Pinene and Caryophyllene, which explains why the pepper is buried underneath those sweet and fruity flavors.
