Terpene Spotlight: Myrcene

Terpene Spotlight: Myrcene

Myrcene is the terpene that dictates the energizing or sedating effect of cannabis with THC. In strains with less than .5% myrcene, energizing effects are felt. In strains higher than .5%, you get sedative effects. 

This is particularly helpful information if you are looking for more pain relief and relaxation, vs a cerebral, stimulating high. 

Myrcene is present in mangoes, hops, basil, and of course- cannabis. 

Its aroma can be woodsy, earthy, and with a hint of citrus.
