TERPENE OF THE MONTH | MYRCENE

June 1st, 2017 | posted by Denver Dab Co. 

TERPENE OF THE MONTH: #Myrcene, or β-myrcene is an alkene natural organic hydrocarbon that can also be classified as a #monoterpene - and it is one of the major terpenes found within many cannabis strains you consume!

Myrcene gets it's name from the Myrcia sphaerocarpa - a powerful #Brazilian healing plant used by the natives for decades. This musk/earth/citrus smelling #terpene is more then just an aroma, it's potency tends to be dominate in the #cannabis strains - not only because of it's strong overall effects, but because it is also responsible for the growth of the other terpenes within the strain itself. 

The medicinal benefits include antifungal, anit-inflammatory, and even anti spasm properties. This body high terpene is known to help with relaxation, sedation, and aiding with insomnia.

So keep enjoying.. Myrcene!
