Earlier this month we introduced you to our terpenes of the month: Linalool and Limonene. Today, we are going to dive a little deeper into Limonene (lim-o-neen) and its benefits!
Limonene is also found in citrus rinds like lemon and orange. While there are many strains that have citrus aromas, this doesn’t always mean that Limonene is present. Testing strains in the lab is the most effective way to identify this terpene. Limonene isn’t commonly dominant in cannabis strains, but when present it promotes the absorption of other terpenes in the strain.
Factors like how and where the cannabis plant is grown and processed all affect the terpene levels in a strain. Research shows that cannabis strains with Limonene can help with uplifting your mood, relief from stress, and may also help relieve heartburn. Most intriguing about Limonene is its promising anti-tumor effects. You can read more about that research here.
Check out the featured products below to get started on the right path. As always, we encourage you to ask your budtenders questions and recommendations on exactly what you’re looking for.
