What’s Your Terpene?

A profile of the therapeutic aromatic hydrocarbon known as myrcene by Mitchell Colbert, Patient Consultant

Terpenes are the chemicals which give everything in nature its own unique flavor and scent—without them, cannabis would have no smell nor taste, as cannabinoids have no smell of their own. Just like the cannabinoids, terpenes have many known medicinal properties.

Myrcene is one of the most

plentiful terpenes found in

cannabis; it also is found in very

high concentrations in sweet

basil, mangoes, lemongrass and

hops. Myrcene is described as

possessing an earthy, fruity,

clove-like odor, but can be very

pungent in higher

concentrations, as in heavily

hopped beers. Not surprisingly,

hops and cannabis are cousins,

both members of the family Cannabaceae.

opiate drugs. Other research on myrcene suggests that it can be a powerful sedative and could be a major reason why some strains produce a “couch-lock” relaxing body high, while others can keep you going for hours.

According to Steep Hill Labs, myrcene weakens the blood-brain barrier, which makes myrcene and many other chemicals have a stronger effect, faster than they normally would. This means that other terpenes, and cannabinoids like THC and CBD, will be more potent and you will need less for the same effects. Furthermore, myrcene has the unique ability to increase the saturation point of the CB1 receptors, which allows

those receptors to become more saturated with THC and potentially creating a greater

psychoactive effect. Steep Hill goes on to say that eating a mango 45 minutes before inhaling cannabis will increase the psychoactive effect.

Myrcene is a terpene found in very high concentrations in mangoes and hops—not surprisingly, hops and cannabis are related.

Myrcene is named after Myrcia sphaerocarpa, a medicinal shrub from Brazil which contains very high amounts of myrcene and has long been used in Brazil as a folk remedy for diabetes, diarrhea, dysentery and hypertension. Recent research has supported the traditional use of myrcene for diabetes, and has shown that myrcene stimulates the

Harborside Health Center has many strains and products that are rich in myrcene, such as THCafe's Mango Bhang (formerly Mango Lassi) and Blue River Extracts Mango Terp Vial. Since myrcene is the most common terpene in most strains of cannabis, you can buy any strain you want to benefit from this terpene, though strains that smell reminiscent of mangoes or hops are likely to have more myrcene.
