Terpene Highlight: Myrcene


Another terpene profile that is present in our strains and products is MYRCENE. This terpene is one of the most common found throughout the cannabis and plant world. The scent of myrcene can be described as an earthy, spicy, somewhat fruity aroma.

 

Myrcene is present in highly fragrant plants and fruits like

  • Mangoes

  • Hops

  • Thyme

  • Basil and

  • Lemongrass

A few of myrcene’s potential benefits include:

  • Relaxation

  • Pain mediation

  • Sleep aid

  • Aid in restless muscles

Remember the entourage effect? (If not check out this article). Studies have shown that the more cannabinoids that are present, the better they work. It’s like having a baseball team with one person versus having a team of twenty. Not only are the cannabinoids working together, but the terpenes are just as important. When finding the right CBD product for you, it is important to understand what you’re getting. Check out our previous article here which explains the difference between full spectrum oil, whole plant, distillate and isolate.

Keep in mind that terpene levels do fluctuate from plant to plant and grower to grower. We are able to identify these terpenes in each batch of oil through our third party testing.
