In this article, True Terpenes is going to share the top five terpene strain profiles for you to try this summer.

Top Five Terpene Strain Profiles

What makes summer so wonderful? It’s the warm days and the abundance of sunshine. What if you could feel energetic, euphoric, and happy during your summer-time adventures? It’s possible to enjoy these top five terpenes for summer:

#1. ATF

Touting a risque name (Alaskan Thunderf**k), ATF is a potent terpene strain that satisfies even the most veteran terpene consumer. The terpene was curated by crossing a North American sativa strain and a Russian ruderalis, a genus of cannabis that is separate from indica and sativa. Finally, ATF offers a unique aromatic experience, emitting forest and floral undertones.


In ATF, Linalool (64 percent) and Alpha Pinene (15 percent) make up the majority of the profile. Other terpenes like Myrcene, Limonene, and more make up five percent or less of the remaining profile.


Unlike other terpene strains, ATF is a creeper. It will offer you an increased sense of happiness and energetic creativity in a slow, rolling manner. In short, the terpene’s effects “creep” up on you. For most, the potency of the terpene is strong, but it won’t rush the consumer. Many consumers report finding ATF helpful when they would like to focus and get some tasks done.

#2. Clementine

As a third generation sativa, Clementine has a legacy writ with excellence. Before Clementine, Tangie and Lemon Skunk ruled the industry as the citrus terpenes. Now, Clementine is one of the more popular citrus sativas, winning awards for its potency, aroma, and flavor. With all that being said, this terpene tastes like a delicious slice of citrus.


Terpinolene (38 percent), Ocimene (15 percent), and Beta-Caryophyllene (10 percent) dominate the majority of the strain profile. Other terpenes like Myrcene, Limonene, Humulene, and others make up the remaining profile. As a “heavy hitter” terpene, Clementine delivers a wonderful experience.


As a true sativa, Clementine offers an uplifting, energizing positive experience to consumers. What’s more, consumers have reported that the terpene is great for creating an all-around sense of happiness. It helps loosen you up. As a flavorful, robust strain, Clementine is a great choice for your summer adventures.

#3. Durban Poison

When discussing sativas, Durban Poison is rarely left out of the conversation. Not only does the terpene offer a potent experience, but it also carries a long history with it. Originating from Durban, South Africa, this strain reached Europe and then the U.S. in the 1970s. The distinct aroma and high potency are what make this terpene purely unforgettable.


Durban Poison offers Terpinolene (76 percent), Humulene (six percent), and Beta-Caryophyllene (five percent), as well as six other terpenes at or below four percent. The sweet, piney aromas and earthy flavor give consumers a unique experience.


Consumer reports show that Durban Poison offers an awake alertness so that you can get things done. Also, it’s common for consumers to experience a rush of uplifting, creative energy with this terpene. What’s better than an alert, creative summer? Not a whole lot.

#4. Goji OG

This terpene is unique in that it’s a sativa-hybrid with an intense experience. This terpene strain is a combination between Nepali OG and Snow Lotus. The name derives from the Himalayan goji berry. The aroma is sweet with hints of spicey, similar to the berry. Finally, you may experience hints of licorice, cherry, and strawberry in the aftertaste.


The major terpenes in Goji OG are as follows: Limonene (32 percent), Myrcene (17 percent), and Linalool (eight percent). The remaining 18 terpenes that make up the rest of this strain sit at six percent or less.


Although Goji OG is considered a hybrid, it’s ratio is about 80:20, sativa to indica. Nonetheless, this strain is potent, and it offers consistent enjoyment. Like most sativas, this terpene offers an all-around sense of happiness and positive experience.

#5. Green Crack

You may not already know this, but “crack is wack.” Back in the 80s, this phrase took hold, at least for the decade. Green Crack, however, is anything but wack. Originally, this sativa was called Cush, and it descended from Skunk #1 back in the 70s around Athens, Georgia. Green Crack’s lineage does beg for more conversation on how it came about, but for the most part, people agree. General consensus says that Green Crack is definitely a daytime terpene.


A large portion of Green Crack is made up of Myrcene (42 percent), as well as other terpenes like Beta Caryophyllene (16 percent), Alpha Pinene (15 percent), Humulene (11 percent), and Beta Pinene (nine percent). As a true sativa, the terpene profile is an all-around positive experience.


Green Crack is more than an afternoon terpene; it’s a strain profile that fuels people throughout the day. Consumers report that Green Crack is their “secret sauce” when it comes to a calm, uplifting focus. What’s more, this terpene has been reported to give consumers an abundance of energy. For those new to terpenes, Green Crack may feel overwhelming, but it’s a fantastic terpene strain nonetheless.
