Hey guys, welcome to Terpene Tuesdays at Hempire Co. I’m your terp Smith Travis and today we’ll be talking about a few terpenes you might utilize in your daily life.
Myrcene – one of nature’s most amazing anti-inflammatories, found in basil, hops, eucalyptus, mangoes, and some citrus. One amazing fact about Myrcene is that it can regulate and assist other terpenes and cannabinoids as they pass through cell membranes. This is why you may feel a sedative effect after drinking a hoppy beverage or smoking a strain with a high Myrcene concentration – like most indicas. When tasting a beer, the peppery or earthy notes, you can attribute to Myrcene, humulene, and beta caryophyllene.
Myrcene is not only an anti-inflammatory, but provides some amazing anti insomnia and antispasmodic properties as well. Here at Hempire Co. when asked about inflammation and pain relief– you can bet whatever I recommend – whether it be a sublingual oil or a salve – that it has Myrcene incorporated into it.
