Myrcene is one of the most common terpenes and is found in almost all cannabis strains. It can also be found elsewhere in nature, including the distinctive scent of bay leaves, thyme and parsley. This terpene is known for its earthy, grassy taste. It has been shown to be effective in relieving muscle spasms or treating insomnia and also has anti-inflammatory properties.
This terpene is found in almost all types of cannabis, as well as rosemary, pine, and many other plants. It’s often used to clear the bronchi or treat other respiratory problems, but research shows it’s also very effective in curing intestinal disorders.
Just like a-pinene, beta-pinene has been shown to have profound and scientifically proven effects on overall health. Just like a-pinene, beta-pinene has been shown by researchers to be an effective anti-inflammatory, a bronchodilator, pain reliever, anxiety-reliever, and even a tool to battle short-term memory impairment. While there are some slight differences between the two, both positively affect our overall health.
Limonene, or D-Limonene, is a key component in the oil extracted from the peel of citrus fruits such as oranges, lemons, tangerines, limes and grapefruits. It is one of nature’s most abundant terpenes (aromatic compounds found in plants) and is often referred to as the “fragrance” terpene. Therefore, it is a very popular ingredient in cleaning products, cosmetics and other personal care products. Limonene is also used as a flavoring agent and is found in fruit juices, soft drinks, baked goods, ice cream and pudding.
D-Limonene has powerful anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and anti-cancer properties. It is also considered to be a fairly low toxicity chemical. It is available as a dietary supplement in both capsule and liquid forms.
Like other cannabinoids and terpenes, terpinolene helps fight cancer through its antifungal and antibiotic effects. In addition, it also has a sedative effect that alone or together with linalool and cannabinol helps patients with insomnia.
Its rich, spicy aroma can be found every day in the kitchen, because in addition to hemp, black pepper, for example, also contains a significant amount of beta-caryophyllene. It has many positive properties: antifungal, antioxidant, antitumor, anti-inflammatory, muscle relaxant.
It has a calming effect, is most commonly used to treat anxiety, but is also useful for reducing inflammation. Among other things, it can also be found in the scent of lavender.
