Dominant Terpenes: Limonene, Caryophyllene, and Pinene
The dominant terpenes in Tres Leches are limonene, caryophyllene, and pinene and each contributes to making this strain flavorful and powerful. Below, we outline how each of these terpenes interacts with the body and benefits health and wellbeing.
Found In: Citrus fruits such as oranges and lemons
Strains with high levels of limonene promote a light mental euphoria and body warming to decrease both stress and pain. Combined, these two sensations make us more open to love and affection. Early studies also show that limonene can increase serotonin and dopamine levels, causing anxiety relief and feelings of contentment.
Limonene is also responsible for the bright citrus flavor present in the Tres Leches strain. Combined with humulene and caryophyllene, two other terpenes found in Tres Leches, limonene causes the creamy, vanilla, cake-like flavor Tres Leches (the cake and the strain) is most known for.
Caryophyllene & Humulene
Found In: Cinnamon, cloves, and hops
Early studies show that caryophyllene (b-caryophyllene) and humulene may help warm the joints by activating the CB2 cannabinoid receptors — reducing inflammation and easing chronic pain. The presence of this terpene in Tres Leches promotes a tranquil body high that makes movement more comfortable — leaving you relaxed without causing couchlock.
On its own, caryophyllene has a spicy aroma and flavor similar to cinnamon and cloves. However, when combined with humulene, these terpenes create a floral, earthy flavor.
Found In: Basil, rosemary, and pine needles
Pinene lends many strains an underlining note of pine needles and spice and brings an earthy aroma and flavor. Although research on pinene is new, this terpene is thought to have anti-inflammatory properties similar to caryophyllene.
Sweet, Citrus, and Creamy Caramel
The combination of terpenes in Tres Leches work together to create a citrusy, creamy caramel, sweet flavor profile that is synonymous with the taste of traditional Tres Leches cake, a Latin American sponge cake soaked in three different kinds of milk — evaporated milk, condensed milk, and heavy cream.
The delicious scent of Tres Leches cannabis flower will transport you to your favorite bakery. One hit will have you feeling like you’re indulging in a decadent piece of Tres Leches cake with its sweet, creamy filling and notes of cinnamon and light orange.
Koolato X Cookies and Cream
Tres Leches is a cross of two legendary genetics — Koolato and Cookies and Cream. Cookies and Cream is a phenotype of Cookies, a strain developed by California Bay Area breeder and cultivator, Berner. Cookies and Cream is a balanced hybrid with a high THC content, a nutty, vanilla, sugar sweet taste and aroma, and uplifting, euphoric effects. Koolato is a pheno of Gelato #33 and leans slightly on the sativa side. This strain is known for its fruity, citrus flavor and aroma and for increasing happiness, contentment, and sociability.
The terpenes and cannabinoids in Koolato and Cookies and Cream each lend themselves to the creation of Tres Leches. While Tres Leches shares many of the same notes as its parent strains, such as the classic Cookies taste, it also has its own unique flavor that sets it apart.
Structure and Appearance
For growers, Tres Leches is a great strain to work with. It’s resilient and vigorous with a hardy structure and growth pattern — making it easier to produce bigger, healthier yields. The cured buds have shades of deep mossy greens with purple undertones, vibrant orange pistils, and extremely thick, frosty trichomes.
