Terpenes 101: Caryophyllene

Caryophyllene, also known as beta-Caryohyllene, is a fantastic Terpene that is really an all-star as far, as Terpenes go! Caryophyllene can be found in a variety of herbs and spices from oregano and basil to black pepper and cloves. It is also found in Cannabis Strains.

This amazing and robust molecule has a wonderful relationship with our Peripheral Endocannabinoid System by its ability to bind to the CB2 receptors, which provides a host of medical benefits such as reducing inflammation. 

The Endocannabinoid System regulates our overall homeostatic environments from hunger and mood to reproduction.  Caryohpyllene is different from any other Terpene that we know of in that it contains a very rare cyclobutane ring, as well as a trans-double bond in a 9-membered ring, and directly activates the Cannabinoid Receptors, unlike any other Terpene as well as rare in nature in general. Wow.

Caryophyllene is known to be a stress and anxiety reliever, pain reliever and sleep promoter from its analgesic, anxiolytic and relaxing properties. The Formula with the highest amount of Caryophyllene is our NIGHT Formula that is made for all sleep related needs and should only be taken around night time. Suggested dosing is 1 hour before bed on an empty stomach.

Night night, sleep tight!
