Cannabis Caryophyllene Terpenes: What Does It Do?
Cannabis Terpenes are being researched everyday in Australia and the Caryophyllene stands out as one of the most important components in the marijuana plant.
β-Caryophyllene belongs to the Sespuiterpene (consisting of 3 isoprene units with a molecular formula C15H24) family.
Its presence is seen in most of the well-known plants like Cloves, Cinnamon Leaves, Thai Basils, Black Pepper, and Lavender (small quantities).
It has a wood-like, fiery-pepper like, and highly spiced smell, and this is the only terpene family member that can interact with the CB2 system, i.e. endocannabinoid.
Not only β-Caryophyllene has shown peculiar qualities to treat cancer but also exclusively fixes itself to the endocannabinoid receptor system and initiates a physiological response.

β-Caryophyllene is also used in chewing gum by mixing it with various other citrus flavourings.
