Everything You Need to Know About Myrcene


Myrcene is one of the most common terpenes in cannabis. It’s known for its earthy, musky aroma, and it’s said to have several beneficial properties. But what is myrcene, and what does it do? In this article, we’ll take a closer look at myrcene and its effects on the body and mind. We’ll also discuss how to use myrcene for therapeutic purposes. Stay tuned!

What is Myrcene?

There are many terpenes found in cannabis, but myrcene is by far the most abundant. It’s also present at trace levels during manufacturing processes because it only occurs naturally within certain plants like hop and lemongrass.

The main difference between myrcene and THC is that this terpene has a much faster onset, which means you’ll feel its effects almost immediately. In addition to being an effective muscle relaxant with anti-inflammatory properties, myrcene also relieves pain while helping people sleep better at night!


The myrcene terpene is a major component of cannabis. It has an earthy, spicy scent that can be compared to something similar to cloves or wintergreen leaves when it comes in contact with air and light – which produces menthols like cystine crystals on your skin after being exposed for too long during cold weather conditions!

Myrcene is a predecessor to other cannabinoids like THC and CBD. It’s responsible for helping these molecules form, which means if you want more of one over another then it’ll help supply that specific component! It may hold promise for protecting skin against UV light-induced aging. It is both anti-aging and sunscreen lotion ingredients!

Entourage Effect

Cannabinoids and terpenes are two different molecules that come together in our bodies to modify each other’s effects. In essence, this creates a greater efficacy for the same plants if there are higher amounts or ratios present than what was originally present!

The entourage effect is a phenomenon where the cannabis plant’s unique ability to interact with other phytocannabinoids leads not only to increased potency and therapeutic benefits but also an overall better experience.


The terpene myrcene is a natural sedative that can produce “couch-lock” or drowsiness in high doses. It has been shown to increase barbiturate sleeping time when present, demonstrating its probability as an alternative treatment for insomnia patients who are unable to sleep due to their condition’s severity.

Its anti-inflammatory properties may help to kill cancerous cells and slow down the progression of the disease. A 2015 study suggested that this essential oil plays an important role in fighting metastatic activity among human breast tumor samples.
