Harlequin GDP has a beautiful balance of caryophyllene, myrcene and humulene all of which contribute to the smell it gives off.
The scent of caryophyllene is often described as woody, spicy or peppery. It is the only terpene that is able to interact with cannabinoid receptors. It is mostly helpful as an anti inflammatory agent.
If you have opened a Heineken can, the scent that hit your nostrils is probably that of humulene. This terpene is abundant in hops, a compound used in beer making. It has a woody/ earthy scent.
