As the Sunshine weed strain is abundant in limonene, it emanates a citrus aroma with distinct earthy notes. This smell comes with a tropical touch and lemon hints that balance the excessive sweetness. These odors are explained by a high concentration of the myrcene and linalool terpenes. The flavor holds a tropical overtone as well.

Growth Overview

This marijuana is not challenging to cultivate and is considered a novice-friendly plant.
