Home / Learn More About Myrcene, One Of The Most Commonly Found Terpenes

Consumer-based cannabis knowledge has greatly changed since the introduction of terpenes to the common stoner. Terpenes have only been common in the cannabis lexicon for four or five years and the information around the natural oils is exploding. Many brands list terpene percentages and terpene profiles on their packaging to educate customers about the chemicals that make a cannabis experience tick, terpenes. Myrcene is the most commonly found terpene in cannabis plants and has a wide array of characteristics.

Terpenes aren’t only found in cannabis, they’re present in all kinds of plants. Myrcene is a terpene cannabis shares with other plants such as hops, lemon-grass, basil, and mangos. Myrcene is named from a plant in Brazil named Myrcia sphaerocarpa, per This terpene has been shown in scientific studies to have numerous medicinal effects, as well as varying effects depending on the dosage.

Through studies conducted on mice, heavy doses of myrcene resulted in strong sedative effects while light doses gave the mice an energetic/tonic effect. Sometimes these results do correlate with cannabis strains. Many indica strains like 9lb Hammer are known for putting users down and it contains high amounts of myrcene. Myrcene has gained the nickname “the couch-lock” terpene.

Myrcene is commonly associated with mangos for several reasons. Mangos contain high amounts of myrcene, but even before terpenes were commonplace in the stoner lexicon, there was an urban-legend about eating a mango to increase you high. Well, science may lend some information to back this up. One of the most important characteristics myrcene possesses is increasing transdermal absorption. Meaning, myrcene potentially helps cannabinoids like THC cross the blood-brain barrier, making the bioavailability of the psychoactive chemicals in cannabis much higher. This lends a lot of credence to eating a mango to enhance the effects of your cannabis high.

Myrcene is characterized as having either tropical and fruity aromas to something that is more spicy, closer to cloves. Myrcene features a wide spectrum of flavors and effects which make it one of the most interesting terpenes that are commonly found in cannabis.
