What is Myrcene?
Myrcene is one of the most plentiful terpenes in cannabis sativa making up nearly 65% of its terpene content. It’s also abundant in lemongrass, hops, mangos, and thyme. Due to its herbaceous flavour and pungent aroma Myrcene is one of the most popular terpenes used to manufacture food and beverages. In fact, it is a major factor in determining the aroma of beer. It’s also used in common consumer products like soap and detergents. Moreover, it’s one of the base materials for popular scents such as menthol.
Not to mention, Myrcene is a major contributor to making our hemp vodka one of the tastiest tipples in the industry.
What is Myrcene used for?
Aside from enhancing taste and smells of consumer products, Myrcene has a number of health benefits. Through research Myrcene has been shown to have anti-inflammatory, anti-anxiety, and muscle relaxant properties. It also has sedative effects making it an effective aid for sleep disorders such as insomnia.
Similar to other terpenes, Myrcene has been shown to have anti-inflammatory effects. Research indicates that the terpene can help in decreasing cell damage, slow down disease progression, and aid in eliminating cancer cells.
In addition to inflammation, Myrcene has analgesic effects similar to over-the-counter pain medications. For instance, a past study revealed that the terpene helped in mitigating the pain stemming from minor injuries such as sprains and bruises.
