Cannabis Myrcene Terpenes: What Does It Do?
Cannabis Terpenes are being researched everyday in Australia and the Myrcene stands out as one of the most important components in the marijuana plant.
The common-most terpene produced by Cannabis is Myrcene, especially - myrcene. Myrcene is a monoterpene and in some species has around 60% of the essential oil. Though it smells similar to cloves, its smell can be described as pungent, plain, and organic.
The very famous Couch-Lock Effect (blissful physical sedation) of traditional Indica strains is bestowed when the myrcene level in cannabis is more than 0.5%.
You can get ample traces of myrcene in - Citrus fruits, Bay leaves, Hops, Eucalyptus, Lemon Grass, Wile Thyme, etc.
Myrcene has a very unique medical property - It can lower the resistance throughout the blood to brain barrier by itself and crossing the barrier faster with the help of other chemicals.
In the case of THC, myrcene enhances the speed of the cannabinoid effects.
Interestingly, the studies have shown that myrcene is responsible for enhancing the highest saturation level of the CB1 receptor, thus bestowing a very high psychoactive effect on the patients.
By eating any citrus fruit, like fresh mango or orange, before about 45 minutes of cannabis consumption, you can get an intense high effect. It is required to choose a very ripe fruit because it contains a higher percentage of myrcene, thus giving you that extra high!
