What’s caryophyllene and what makes this weed terpene so particular? – firebird-cbdoil


Have you ever smelled weeds that had a spicy kick? A bit budded bite? A slight prick when you smelled it?

If so, you've probably got a hint of caryophylls. Caryophyllene or more precisely β-caryophyllene is one of the most common terpenes in cannabis. While most people can distinguish caryophyll from its other terpenes because of its spicy properties, it is also responsible for the fact that certain sweet, candy-like varieties resemble tropical fruits or baked goods.

<p> <strong> Are there health benefits of caryophylls? </strong> </p>
<p> Does β-caryophyllene do anything other than help the bud smell absolutely delicious? Yes, the terpene can bring some health benefits. It is even listed as a "nutritional terpene", meaning that it is a weed-containing terpene that still unfolds its magic when consumed. However, keep in mind that most of the properties listed below come from studies that did not consider smoking caryophylls. Therefore, no one can guarantee that these effects will also be noticeable if, for example, you ignite something that is too moist with a stump. Instead, these studies rely on the effects of caryophyllene in oils or when inhaled as a vapor. </p>
<p> One of the most impressive, if not surprising, properties of caryophyllene is its ability to fight cancer. Studies have shown that this terpene can make cancer cells more sensitive to cancer drugs and potentially improve a patient's chances of survival. Caryophylls can also inhibit the growth of certain cancer cells, such as those that originate from the prostate or breast. </p>
<p> Caryophyllene is also a powerful analgesic, which means that it also acts as a pain reliever. Clove oil has been used by humans to treat toothache since ancient times, and β-caryophyllene is one of the reasons for this. The terpene also has anti-inflammatory properties that can help keep cancer at bay while controlling pain. In fact, practically anything that can curb our inflammatory responses could also help improve brain health and slow down the degenerative effects of aging. </p>
<p> Some studies suggest that caryophyllene when inhaled as vapor via aromatherapy can reduce anxiety and contribute to better sleep. And here's a particularly funny one: Mouse studies show that inhaling caryophyll vapor can burn body fat, which can partly explain why weed smokers are less stressed and have a slimmer waist than non-tokens. </p>
<p> And while scientists are still finding out why people experience different types of weed heights from the same flower, the anti-anxiety effects of β-caryophylls can explain why some people can "come down" after eating raw black peppercorns. The idea is that if other herbal compounds can interact with the same brain receptors that are responsible for our cannabis high, taking these compounds can "defuse" the consumption of too much THC. </p>
<p> <strong> Which strains have significant amounts of caryophyllene? </strong> </p>
<p> According to Leafly laboratory data, gelato, Zkittlez, Runtz, wedding cake, chem dog, girl scout cookies (also known as GSC) and Bubba Kush are among the most common weed strains that produce useful amounts of caryophylls. </p>
<p> However, new varieties are constantly appearing on the shelves of the pot shop, and not every state requires that weed labels contain terpene content. Train your nose to smell caryophylls: if your cannabis smells incredibly sweet, fruity, spicy or peppery, it is likely to contain caryophylls. </p>
<p> <strong> What other fruits, vegetables and herbs contain caryophylls? </strong> </p>
<p> If you're looking for other sources of caryophylls to add moisture to your diet, consider black pepper, cloves, basil, hops (beer!), Oregano, cinnamon, lavender, and rosemary. If you want to train your nose to sniff this terpene, try some of these other plants instead! </p>
