Have you heard of terpenes? Of course, you might have heard that terpenes are the compounds responsible for the scents and aroma in cannabis and other plants. But what are the therapeutic effects of these compounds? How do these compounds support health and wellness? Here, we’ll be presenting you a list of the top 4 popular terpenes found in herbs as well as their supports for health and wellness. Let’s get started:

Beta-Caryophyllene

Also known as β-Caryophyllene, beta-caryophyllene is a therapeutic terpene present in some strains, including Northern Lights, Rockstar, and Skywalker. Apart from its clove notes and spicy pepper, β-Caryophyllene primarily binds to the CB2 receptor, producing effects such as pain relief and reduced inflammation. Similarly, it also acts as an antioxidant protecting the brain as well as the nervous system. More so, caryophyllene has also been proven to help manage alcoholic abuse by cutting down the cravings for alcohol in humans. In addition, it also helps to reduce the rate of spread of cancerous cells.

Linalool

Linalool is another popular terpene used as an essential ingredient in the production of perfumes. Naturally, you’ll find Linalool in plants like lavender, mint, citrus, cinnamon, and birch. Some of the benefits of Linalool in support human health and wellness include helping with psychosis, reducing stress and anxiety, and reduction of epileptic convulsion.

Beta-myrcene

Beta-myrcene is one of the most popular terpenes present in the cannabis plant, and it is mostly found in plants such as hops, mango, lemongrass, eucalyptus, and bay leaves. The scents and aroma produced by Beta-myrcene have been described as herbal, rooty, balsamic, and spicy. Studies have proven the effectiveness of myrcene in muscle relaxations, reducing bacterial growth rate, promoting sleep, and managing diabetes.

Limonene

After Myrcene, Limonene remains the second most popular terpene that can be found in cannabis. As suggested by its name, this terpene displays the strong characteristics of tangerine, lime, lemon, and grapefruits. While it isn’t only functional in aromatherapy, but it also acts as a natural stress reducer. Apart from that, it enhances your mood, promotes weight loss, and fights anxiety and depression.

 Remember, Mother Nature has provided countless miracles when it comes to herbs in relation to health and wellness. You only need to tap into these organic gifts to find to enjoy a bundle of relief, happiness, and wellness.
