Terpene Spotlight: Myrcene


Myrcene is the most abundant terpene found in the cannabis plant! It can also be found in mango, hops, thyme, and lemongrass. Plants with myrcene have been used for centuries as a sleep aid and pain reliever all around the world. Myrcene’s popularity in cannabis research stemmed from its use as a sleep aid, and after it was recognized that cannabis strains high in Myrcene and plants that contain myrcene created a relaxed and sleepy feeling. 

Indica dominant strains are more likely to have Myrcene as the dominant terpene, which makes sense why indica strains are recommended for nighttime. Because Myrcene is found in the highest percentage in the cannabis plant it was one of the first terpenes to “steal the show” and shed light on how important terpenes really are and why they should be reintroduced to cannabis products

What are the Benefits of Myrcene?

For centuries plants with myrcene have been used as holistic treatments for common ailments such as insomnia, pain, and inflammation. Teas from lemongrass, high in myrcene, were used for sleep and pain relief, and it is said that eating a mango while ingesting cannabis can heighten its effects. Terpenes are a much more powerful addition to the cannabis plant than was known even 10 years ago, no matter how big or small. Now, research has uncovered that Myrcene may be beneficial as the following: 

  • Sleep-Aid 
  • Anti-Inflammatory
  • Pain reliever (Analgesic)
  • Antibiotic
  • Anti-Cancer
  • Anti-anxiety
  • Muscle Relaxant
