This is part of a continuing series on the various terpenes that make for deep and unique cannabis experiences.

What are Terpenes?

If you know what essential oils are, you know what terpenes are:smaller molecules of essential oilsresponsible for theflavors and aromas found in all plants. That includes cannabis, of course. Each terpene affects the body in a different way, and as a result, the terpene profile combined with phytocannabinoids (THC, CBD, etc.) creates different types of "highs." This is known as theentourage effect. So, what type of high does Ocimene contribute to?

The Terpene Ocimene

In chemistry speak,Ocimenes are a group of Isomeric Hydrocarbons(basically, atoms of the same molecules that are bonded in different ways), which include α-Ocimene, cis-β Ocimene, and trans-β Ocimene. These varieties are considered terpenoids.

Ocimene Flavor and Aroma

Known for its woodsy aroma with a sweet floral note and a hint of citrus, Ocimene is commonly found in not only cannabis, but also inmany varieties of plantsfrom mint, parsley, and basil, to mangos, orchid flowers, and hops.

Ocimene Benefits

Researchshows how Ocimene interacts with the body, reportedly providing the following benefits:

Ocimene Effects

Leafly reports anecdotal data correlating strains with higher concentrations of ocimene likeClementine,Golden Pineapple, andDream Queenwith uplifting effects. Also, because of its decongestant benefits, you may end up in a coughing fit regardless of how big of a hit you take.


Online and in-store, The Green Solution displays the terpene profile pie chart for eachpotentandhighly potentstrain to help you better understand the likely effects of our marijuana. Next time you're at your closestTGS location, look for strains high in cis-Ocimene.

And, If you're interested in learning more about the most common terpenes found in cannabis, check out the other terpenes in this Meet The Terpenes blog series:humulene,limonene,linalool,myrcene, andpinene.

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.
