What is Caryophyllene?

"Caryophyllene, more formally β-caryophyllene, is a natural bicyclic sesquiterpene that is a constituent of many essential oils, especially clove oil, the oil from the stems and flowers of Syzygium aromaticum, the essential oil of Cannabis sativa, rosemary, and hops." -Wikipedia

Don't worry; we can't pronounce most of those words either. Chemical compounds aside, what we can extract from that Wikipedia definition is that Caryophyllene is a pretty solid staple for a lot of essential oils. It's aromatic with acitrus/spicynose and found abundantly in nature, including cannabis, cloves, black pepper, and more. Conveniently, it seems you could find this terpene in your spice rack at home too...

How does Caryophyllene Work?

Not to be dramatic, but Caryophyllene is truly the Unicorn of terpenes. Why? Because its unique molecular structure actually acts as acannabinoid(the chemical compounds that interact with and activate our endocannabinoid system within our body, helping us feel the effects and benefits of cannabis).

When used, β-Caryophyllene binds to our CB2 receptors, which can help naturally activate the body's natural, internal healing processes.

Why is Caryophyllene Good?

Thislong and complex articlefromPubMed Centralgoes in-depth on the science behind CB2 receptors and is pretty fascinating if you can find the time to read it. If you don't (no judgement, it does get pretty jargony), take away the following key points:

  • Activated CB2 receptors can help reduce inflammation in the body. Activated CB2 receptors in the body are scientifically shown to help reduce inflammation in the body, providing relief for things like arthritis and IBS.
  • Activated CB2 receptors can help boost and support the body's immune system. CB2 receptors are also plentiful in our immune system, both tissues, and cells, includingleukocytes(white blood cells). This means our immune system is primed to receive Caryophyllene to help bolster natural immune response.

It's worth noting that scientists are still working on understanding the full scope of benefits and properties of CB2 receptors, so take everything with the proverbial grain of salt and know that there are people dedicated to figuring out exactly how CB2 receptors work best for you!

Which Cannabis Flower Strains have Caryophyllene in Them?

Now that you are fully educated on what β-Caryophyllene is, how it works, and what it can do for you, it's time to decide how to get your hands on it. Don't worry; this is the easiest part.

The Green Solution has the strains you need to live your best β-Caryophyllene-filled life.Reserve online, or pop into a store to pick up one of these β-Caryophyllene-rich strains from any one of our18 convenient TGS locations:Wedding Cake,OG Kush,Bubba Kush, andGranddaddy Purps.

Quick Fact

Curing Cannabis Plants- This very gradual drying process involves moderate humidity and mild temperatures, preserving the dimensionality of cannabis plants and the consumption experience. The better and more gradual the curing process, the more sophisticated a grower's yields become, including preserved aromas, flavors, and potency.
