What is Umpqua CBD Hemp Flower Strain?
Umpqua is a unique strain with a mysterious past. Breeders are uncertain as to Umpqua’s lineage. Experts agree that the strain originated in Oregon’s Umpqua Valley, home to many Native American tribes. Meaning thundering water, or satisfied, our Umpqua has 14.1% CBD perfect for a relaxing smoke or decarbed for use in food.
Umpqua Strain Aroma and Taste Profile
Umpqua hemp strain features diesel, stone fruits, citrus and pine. The smell is overpowering diesel, a term we use in the cannabis world, with a fruity undertone. Upon exhale you are greeted with a sweat flavor, refreshing effects, and an uplifted clear head.
The top three terpenes by highest concentration are: Caryophyllene, Myrcene, and Humelene. For more on terpenes and their effects, visit this page.
- Caryophyllene: This spicy, woody aromatic terpene may be able to interact with the endocannabinoid, just like cannabinoids.
- Myrcene: This terpene has a dank, earthy, and herbal scent – just like cannabis.
- Humulene: This terpene is responsible for a spicy, herbaceous, and floral aromatic experience in CBD hemp strains and is often used in holistic medicine.
