Pungent flavors describe tastes that are deeply noticeable. This means they are rank, skunky, and will stay in your mouth for a long time after smoking. Cannabis strains that exhibit a pungent flavor are heavily sought after for their invasive taste. These strains will coat your mouth with a profound flavor that will simultaneously shock and please your taste buds. It’s also necessary to use a heavy-duty carbon filter when growing pungent smelling strains.
