Myrcene

Can you guess where you might find myrcene?

That pungent, earthy, instantly recognizable scent is primarily caused by myrcene, one of the most prevalent terpenes found in cannabis.

Myrcene is known to have a strong relaxing effect. Plants containing myrcene, such as lemongrass, have been used in traditional medicine for centuries. In animal studies, myrcene was shown to have anti-inflammatory, sedative and pain-relieving properties. It can also help increase transdermal absorption, which makes it easier for other pain-relieving cannabinoids like THC to reach affected areas of the body. Additional animal research shows that myrcene can help enhance muscle relaxation and increase sleeping time.

Essential oils rich in myrcene—such as verbena, thyme and lemongrass—are used to help relieve headaches and muscle tension, applied topically to protect minor skin injuries from infection, and can be mixed with tea to improve digestion.

Hungry for Terpenes?

Experiment with some of these myrcene-rich ingredients:

  • Lemongrass
  • Mango
  • Thyme
  • Hops
  • Basil
  • Cardamom
  • Cloves
  • Chamomile

Feel, live and taste the ways you can benefit from myrcene!

Feel

Essential oils containing myrcene can help protect against muscle damage and reduce the build-up of lactic acid. Try adding a massage with myrcene-rich topical oils to your fitness routine!

Live

Like many other terpenes, myrcene is believed to have anti-bacterial and antimicrobial properties. Adding myrcene-rich essential oils to your all-natural cleaning solution can help kill germs and fungus on surfaces throughout your home.

Taste

In popular cannabis culture, it’s a well-known technique to pair consumption with mango slices or a mango smoothie to increase the euphoric effects. Mangoes are rich in myrcene, and are anecdotally believed to enhance the intensity and duration of the experience.

I'm always super satisfied with the service, my product, and the persistent consistency that this dispo has been providing, where others had been lacking. They're always friendly, transparent about pricing, keeping me updated on deals, and they almost always run sales, which means I can save money on quality bud.
