Are you familiar with the scent and flavor of pepper cloves, oregano, black caraway, cinnamon, rosemary, or basil? These spices can all attribute part of their aromatic profile to one of the most common cannabis terpenes, b-Caryophyllene. If you are a cannabis grower, you're most certainly familiar with this terpene, because the amount of beta-caryophyllene can sometimes contribute more than 25% of a cannabis strain's total terpene profile. But why should you be familiar with it as a consumer? B-caryophyllene has a positive effect on anxiety/stress, is a pain reliever, and can be helpful to relieve symptoms of a variety of other diseases. B-caryophyllene is also one of the compounds found in cannabis other than THC and CBD that directly interacts with the human endocannabinoid receptors known as CB1 and CB2.
