Most Fragrant Terpene
As one of the most fragrant terpenes found in cannabis, Limonene is instantly recognizable for the citrus-flavored scent and flavor it provides.
Found in Lemons
As its name suggests, Limonene is found in the rinds of lemons. But it’s also present in high amount in related citrus fruits like oranges, grapefruit, and limes, as well as in maples, spruces, pines, and junipers.
Produced for Consumer Products
Thanks to its fragrance, it’s often used in scented consumer products like perfumes, soaps, bath bombs, aftershaves, lotions, and other personal beauty offerings. Many processed food products use Limonene to enhance flavors or to hide bitter tastes. Its unique chemical structure, which allows it to dissolve oils easily, means it’s often added to personal and industrial cleaning products, and air fresheners.
Chemically, Limonene is a monoterpene that oxidizes easily. When extracted, Limonene is a flammable liquid that can mildly irritate human skin. While it has been found extremely safe for human use and consumption, it can be toxic to marine life in liquid or vapor form. These properties also make an effective natural bug repellent and help it power some organic herbicides. It’s also found many uses in the industrial sector as a solvent in adhesive removers, paint strippers, 3D printing, and a microscopy.
