Humulene - Terpene of the Month - Denver Dab Co. - Cannabis

TERPENE OF THE MONTH: #Humulene, also known as α-humulene or α-caryophyllene is a natural #sesquiterpene!

Considered the#littlesister to the more prominent B-caryophyllene, Humulene was first discovered within the Humulus lupulus (aka #hops) - which is where it's name is derived. This woody/coriander/hops smelling compound is more then just an aroma - it breaks the traditional stereotype of cannabis munchies, and is actually known to suppress hunger.

The medicinal benefits include anti-inflammatory, arthritis, and fibromyalgia - in recent studies it has even been proven to be an anti-cancer agent. This #terpene is known to help with pain relief, muscle relaxation, and aiding with weight loss.

So keep enjoying... Humulene!
