Myrcene

Taste / Odor – Earthy, fruity clove-like aroma.

Therapeutic Effects –  Myrcene has been shown to have strong anti-inflammatory, sedative a muscle relaxant effects. Thus, it may be at least partially responsible for sedating and “couch-locking” effects of indica strains.

Variety – A study from Switzerland confirmed that myrcene is probably the most wide-spread terpene in cannabis strains. One of them, Lovrin 110 (industrial hemp strain), had its terpene profile made of up to 65 percent of myrcene.
