B-Caryophyllene: the terpene thats like a cannabinoid
Terpenes, one of the most important aspects of the cannabis plant. But what are they? In simple terms, terpenes are what provide the aromatic scent to many flowers and herbs. Cannabis alone contains more than 150 types of terpenes, but many are present in trace amounts. The more significant terpenes, like Limonene, are far more prominent and give cannabis strains their profiles! When cannabis is consumed, terpenes also provide us with different functionalities for therapy, mood stabilization and more!
B-Caryophyllene is an important terpene because it works with the body’s Endocannabinoid System, which is the system in our bodies made of neurotransmitters that allows us to experience cannabinoids like THC & CBD, and even though B-Caryophyllene is in the terpene family, it works as if it is cannabinoid within our system the same way it would THC or CBD. It not only can be found in terpene specific cannabis plants, but black pepper, cinnamon, and cloves as well! B-Caryophyllene may assist in relaxation, allowing you to end your night on a calm note.
