Powerful Minor Terpene Profile
A lesser known but extremely powerful terpene, Camphene occurs naturally in many strains of the cannabis plant. Named for its high concentration in the camphor tree, Camphene is commonly found ginger, nutmeg, and many conifers such as the Douglas firs many people use as Christmas trees.
Camphene is best known for its powerful smell, which is often described as mossy, damp, or piney. It is a common part of many perfumes, natural flavorings, and essential oils like cypress. Historically, Camphene was used as a substitute fuel for whale oil lamps in the 1800s until a less-flammable substance called kerosene took over the market.
Today, Camphene is a common component of citronella oil, which is used as a mosquito repellent. It is also regularly added to luxury skincare products. It is also regularly a part of natural or herbal remedies that tout health-boosting powers.
In cannabis plants, Camphene is known as a minor terpene. It is found in numerous strains, but in relatively small quantities. The best way to identify Camphene in cannabis is to search for hybrid strains that have a high amount of Kush genes, contain a THC level of 20%, and emit a smell of damp woodiness. Some common strains that have decent amounts of Camphene include Kush varietals, White Widow, and some Diesel varietals.
