Terpenes are known to show synergistic effects in combination with c-compounds. The effect is known as the "entourage effect," and because the ingredients magnify each other’s impact.

Terpenes offer physical effects which include:

  • Relief from muscle spasms

Additionally, certain terpenes ease the mental impact of:

  • Stress
  • Depression
  • Insomnia
  • Anxiety


Myrcene has citrusy and herbal aromas. Mostly present in fruits like mango, it acts as a muscle relaxant. Myrcene also contains anti-inflammatory properties, according to the National Library of Medicine.
