Myrcene

The Mother of All Terpenes - Mercene

Myrcene Molecule Structure

Often called “the mother of all terpenes,” Myrcene makes up over 20% of the terpene profiles in many cannabis and hemp strains. This peppery, spicey terpene is responsible for offering a woodsy, clove-like flavor to cannabis and hemp strains. If you catch the taste of musky ripe mango or juicy guava, you are likely enjoying a strain with high myrcene levels.

 

Myrcene is named after a medicinal shrub native to Brazil called Myrcia Sphaerocarpa. However, many other plants and foods contain myrcene, which can give us some insight into its medicinal or therapeutic potential. Other plants with myrcene include thyme, lemongrass, hops, and clove. These herbs are traditionally used to help with sleep support and immune-boosting. Additionally, it is found in mangos and guavas, which can account for the tropical flavor notes that can be found in some cannabis and hemp strains.

Studies

While there have been minimal studies into myrcene’s effect on the human body, several animal studies have looked into the anti-cancer and sedative qualities of myrcene. One such study suggested that myrcene at high doses may have muscle relaxant effects and could also potentiate the body’s natural pain-relieving mechanisms. Additionally, myrcene has been found to block aflatoxins, cancer-causing agents found in some foods. Myrcene inhibits the liver enzymes, which allows aflatoxins to damage DNA.

 

While it isn’t true across the board entirely, it is noticeable that many Indica strains have high levels of myrcenes compared with Sativas. So, is myrcene responsible for the classic “couch-lock” we associate with Indica strains? Hopefully, the increasing interest in terpenes will inspire more research to answer this important question.
