Overview - Myrcene


Myrcene is a monoterpene that in very diluted forms the taste of mango. Myrcene makes THC more biologically available by increasing the saturation level and speed at CB1 and thus boosting THC’s properties. Higher concentrations of β-myrcene in cannabis tend to produce the feelings of heavy, deep relaxation. Both sativa and indica strains tend to contain myrcene, with indicas containing more.

Description of Myrcene and Cautions

The isolated terpene is a colorless clear liquid which is flammable. In solutions where myrcene percentage values are above 10%, it may cause skin, eye, and respiratory irritation, including serious and possibly fatal complications if swallowed.

Scent Description

berries, herbal, woody, floral, root-vegetable

Natural Sources

Hops, Mango, bay leaves, lemongrass
