Beta Caryophyllene (also known simply as Caryophyllene) is one of the most abundant terpenes found in cannabis. While the smell may remind you of a peppery/clove smell, you will also find hints of spice and wood. Caryophyllene is able to interact with some of the receptors in the endocannabinoid system, thus allowing people to consider it as a cannabinoid, as well as a terpene. Potential effects include reducing inflammation and providing pain relief. Strains with above average amounts of Caryophyllene include, GSC, Bubba Kush, Candyland, and Deathstar.
