What Is Exotic Weed?
In the dictionary, “exotic” is defined as an adjective meaning:
- “Originating in or characteristic of a distant foreign country”
- “Attractive or striking because colorful or out of the ordinary”
- “Of a kind not used for ordinary purposes or not ordinarily encountered”
When used to define cannabis strains, the term exotic can refer to a strain that is not commonly found in the region and has a strong cannabinoid and terpene content. Exotic strains usually have a high concentration of terpenes and a powerful aroma and flavor that delights users. Let’s take a look at some Exotic Purple Strains.
