Caryophyllene (carry-off-uh-leen) is the most common terpene found in cannabis. But that doesn’t make it any less magical! Caryophyllene activates your CB2 receptors. Our endocannabinoid system is made up of receptors, mainly CB1 and CB2.
The CB2 receptors are located in the peripheral nervous system that is made up of all nerves that connect your brain to your spinal cord. When Caryophyllene is toked, it binds itself to the endocannabinoid system and can produce anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antioxidant effects!
As always, we encourage you to ask your budtenders questions and recommendations on exactly what you’re looking for.
