Caryophyllene - Terpene of the Month - Denver Dab Co.

TERPENE OF THE MONTH: #Caryophyllene or β-caryophyllene, is an organic bicyclic #sesquiterpene that is the foundation of numerous essential oils and found in many edible plants, including #cannabis. 🌿

Although this #terpene is known for its spicy scent of black pepper, wood, and clove - it is much more then just an aroma. This talented #terp is able to bind to ONLY the C2 receptors (and not C1), meaning that it does NOT produce any psychoactive effects. 👩‍🔬👨‍🔬

The medicinal benefits include anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer, and anti-depression -- in recent studies it has even been proven to reduce the cravings of alcohol. This terpene is known to help with pain relief, muscle relaxation, and aiding with insomnia.

So keep enjoying.. Caryophyllene! 🎉
