Myrcene Terpenes

ONLY: £8.50

Terpenes contribute to the pharmacology, efficacy, aroma, and flavour of cannabis, thus improving the experience for medical and recreational users.

Myrcene Terpenes

Our isolated Cannabis Terpenes are completely raw and undiluted, they can be used individually in your product to harness each terpene’s unique effect or combined in different terpenes.

In nature terpenes do not occur in isolation. Individual plants produce a variety of types of these molecules that come together to form what is called a terpene profile. Research has revealed that terpenes possess significant wellness properties.

Terpenes/terpenoids have a wide range of biological and pharmacological activities, for instance, antifungal, antiviral, anticancer, anti-inflammatory, antihyperglycemic, antiparasitic, antioxidant, and antimicrobial.

With Myrcene a very common claim we hear is that you can tell whether a strain will have “indica” or “sativa” effects by knowing its myrcene levels. It’s also often stated that strains with more than 0.5% myrcene by weight will produce “indica” (relaxing) effects, while strains <0.5% myrcene by weight will produce “sativa” (energizing) effects.

Myrcene can block the cancer-causing effects of aflatoxins that are produced by fungi but find their way to our food. These anti-mutagen properties stem from myrcene’s inhibition of the liver enzyme, CYP2B1, which induces aflatoxin’s ability to damage our DNA. Myrcene also protects against DNA damage from toxins such as t-butyl-hydroperoxide. These anti-mutagen effects are consistent with those of other terpenes, along with their antioxidant and antimicrobial benefits.

Myrcene Research and reported Benefits

  • Myrcene has been shown to have sedative and calming effects on the system, including relaxing muscles and an anxious mind.
  • Studies show that myrcene reduces pain by inducing antinociception, the body’s response to potentially harmful stimuli, as well as increasing the brain and spinal cord’s opioid chemicals.
  • Myrcene and other common cannabis terpenes were found to have antimicrobial properties in a 2001 study.
  • A study on the anti-inflammatory activity of essential oils found that both myrcene and limonene can reduce inflammation by inhibiting nitric oxide production.
  • Myrcene showed potential to block cancer-causing effects of aflatoxins produced by fungi in a recent study on rats.
  • Myrcene and linalool were found to have a substantial protective effect against DNA damage and act as antioxidants in a 2009 study.
  • Myrcene has a multitude of reported health benefits, including:
