B-Caryophyllene (Pronounced “B-Carry-oh-file-ean”)

August 16, 2022

LAKE GRADE’s terpene tour kicked off with Myrcene, a powerful cannabinoid and terpene modulator which we learned expresses differently depending on other terpenes and cannabinoids we find in the mix of a given strain — a great example of the “entourage effect”. From there we journeyed to Limonene, one of the most common terpenes found in nature with a host of personal and home care benefits. The next stop on our very own Terp-a-palooza brings us to B-Caryophyllene. 

This extraordinary and unique terpene stands out from the crowd for a variety of reasons. We humans have something in our bodies called the peripheral endocannabinoid system or ECS. This system helps regulate many of our essential biological functions, including appetite, mood, pain sensation, and sleep. B-Caryophyllene has a distinct molecular structure that helps it bind with the CB-2 (cannabinoid-2) receptors found within the ECS â€” and it’s the only known terpene to interact with the body in this way! This superpower gives Caryophyllene its stress-relieving, anxiety-reducing, relaxing, and anti-inflammatory effects. Many cannabis salves use strains high in B-Caryophyllene for this exact reason. 

But wait, there’s more! Caryophyllene has been shown to have antibacterial, antimicrobial, and antioxidant properties and is believed to help mitigate neurodegenerative diseases by protecting the brain from inflammation. Studies suggest that B-Caryophyllene can aid in treating symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis and Alzheimers by reducing inflammation in the brain and body. If that weren’t enough, B-Caryophyllene has been shown to have promise in treating lung and ovarian cancers. Mic drop. 🎤

B-Caryophyllene has a spicy and musky smell and can be found in plants and spices like black pepper, cinnamon, cloves, hops, oregano, and basil. All have distinctly strong and pungent scents that light up our olfactory senses! You’ll find this magical terp in your favorite LAKE GRADE Purple Gelato (Indica hybrid), GMO (Indica hybrid), and Cherry Punch (Sativa hybrid). Give it a try to experience its powerful healing benefits!
