Today we’re talking about the terpene Caryophyllene--, or-β-caryophyllene if you want to get formal.
Reading Time: 3 minutes
Honestly, β-Caryophyllene is an overachiever offering a number of benefits in terms of health. According to the National Library of Medicine, it alleviates pain, slows the growth of bacteria and relieves symptoms of depression and anxiety. This makes it a very helpful terpene to have in a variety of products. You might even notice reduced inflammation.
Before we jump in, we do want to remind you that Abstrax terpenes are sourced from naturally derived ingredients and do not contain CBD, THC or any illegal substances. However, cannabis happens to produce a truly astounding amount of terpenes, which makes it pretty dang fascinating. That’s why we work so hard to create blends with the exact terpene profile of particular strains.
The terpene profiles of cannabis strains are some of nature's most complex and beneficial aromas. This makes them a great addition to non-cannabis products and cannabis products alike. But, for our cannabis-loving customers (or our cannabis curious customers), here are a few of the best β-Caryophyllene Strains.
The Best β-Caryophyllene Strains
- Super Silver Haze
- Wedding Cake
- Death Star
- Lemon G
Super Silver Haze
Super Silver Haze consists of .05% beta-caryophyllene content. This pot-stash essential is Sativa-dominant and remains popular for both medical and recreational patients.
Featuring a 70% Sativa, 30% Indica genetic ratio, Super Silver Haze offers an outstanding, balanced effect. Its small infusion of Indica is thought-provoking, yet not stress or jitters inducing. This Sativa boasts an energetic, soothing and long-lasting body high.
Wedding Cake contains high amounts of beta-caryophyllene and is a hybrid strain -- plus, it’s our sweet-tooth satisfier. It's a crossover of Girl Scout Cookies and Cherry Pie coming together into one highly effective blend.
The Wedding Cake extract from Abstrax is an optimal hybrid to satisfy your craving for something sweet, plus, in addition to its beta-caryophyllene levels, it's high in Limonene and Valencene.
You don’t have to be a Star Wars fanatic to get down on the Death Star. This Indica-dominant hybrid strain contains high levels of beta-caryophyllene content. It has 75% Indica and 25% Sativa genetics, an outcome of the profound genetic crossing of the infamous Sour Diesel Sativa and Sensi Star Indica.
Death Star is popular for its exemplary pungent spacing-out tendencies, a creeping onset, and a powerful buzz. This strain is wonderful to use during the day as well as nighttime use. A little goes a long way here. The strain helps to eliminate any unpleasant thoughts, moods, and emotions, replacing them with abundant happiness and joy.
Lemon G is a Sativa-dominant hybrid offering an incredible aroma. It's lemon fragrance complements a balanced high, with some batches reaching as high as 0.19% beta-caryophyllene.
This 70/30 strain attributes its lineage to G13, a social strain with a fairly mellow taste but a decent amount of earthy spiciness. The nugs are fluffy in appearance and heavily frosted.
So you wanna be a rock superstar? RockStar is an Indica-dominant hybrid and a cross between Rockbud and Sensi Star.
The strain is popular for delivering intense effects without debilitating sedation. It is best for nighttime use. It does not induce the strong sedating impacts typical of Indicas but does help with relaxing at the end of a long day.
