Terpenes are basically the essential oils of the cannabis plant, which provide the distinctive and aromatic tastes and smells we all love to enjoy. Terpenes may also play a key role in differentiating the effects of various cannabis strains. They are important to pay attention to when determining what medicine is best for you.
We love the terpenes in the hybrid strain Citral Glue. These flowers are coated in red hairs and give off beautiful diesel, citrus, and skunk aromas. This hybrid is full of beta-caryophyllene, limonene, and humulene. It is uplifting and energetic, but its potency will keep the best of us all in cerebral and physical bliss!
Beta-caryophyllene has potent anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antibacterial, and antioxidant properties. It is known to help relieve anxiety and pain, reduce cholesterol, prevent Osteoporosis, and treat seizures. Caryophyllene is present in many herbs and spices, including black pepper, basil, and oregano. It provides Citral Glue with a spicy, funky warmth.
Limonene is a zesty superstar, and one of the most abundant terpenes to occur in cannabis, produced in the flower’s resin glands. It uplifts and boosts moods, improves mental health by reducing stress and anxiety, and has anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, and even anti-cancer properties. The fragrance of citrus fruit peels is comprised mostly of limonene, so you’d be correct to assume that this terpene takes its name from the lemon.
Humulene is a fundamental element in the overall aromatic profile of cannabis and is present in many therapeutic-grade essential oils. The use of such oils for healing purposes dates back centuries. Humulene has anti-inflammatory, antifungal, and antibacterial properties. Humulene is partially responsible for giving the plant its distinct spicy, herbaceous, and subtly floral bouquet of aromas.
