Terpenes 101: What is Caryophyllene and What Does it Do?

What is Caryophyllene?

Caryophyllene, also called beta-caryophyllene or BCP, this terpene can be found in hops, cloves, black pepper, oregano, cinnamon, basil and strains of cannabis. If you’ve ever taken a whiff of herb with a funky bite that hits like smelling cracked pepper, it’s likely rich in caryophyllene.

Cannabis strains with high levels of caryophyllene tend to be pungent and musky like: Bubba Kush, Sour Diesel, Chemdog, Death Star, and Gelato among others. Given its strong aroma it’s one of the most easily detected by smell in a strain next to the unmistakable citrusy punch of limonene.

It’s unique due to its ability to act as a cannabinoid and directly activate a cannabinoid receptor, especially CB2 receptors. Because of this unique super power it can aid with issues like inflammation, anxiety and pain all by itself.
