In continuing our focus on terpenes found in cannabis we are highlighting the most common terpene, Myrcene (mur-seen.) Because it is so commonly found in Sativa, Indica, and Hybrid strains, it can be tricky to identify its effects. Research is continuing to develop studies to find the correlation between proposed effects and Myrcene levels. Overall, strains with higher levels of Myrcene present themselves as sedative, relaxing, and calming.
Myrcene is also found in mango, lemongrass, and thyme! These foods and spices share incredible health benefits like boosting the immune system, cancer-fighting properties, and aiding in sleep. It’s powerful to learn how these foods and weed strains play such an important role in benefiting our physical and mental health!
As always, we encourage you to ask your budtenders questions and recommendations on exactly what you’re looking for.
