Myrcene is known to compose up to 50% of the total Terpene content found in individual strains of Cannabis and is perhaps the most highly-valued Terpene due to its promising research in the treatment of chronic pain and inflammation.
A growing body of evidence suggests that when taken medicinally, Myrcene provides anti-bacterial, anti-diabetic, anti-inflammatory, anti-insomniatic, anti-proliferative, antipsychotic, and anti-spasmodic effects. Cannabinoids have also been demonstrated to absorb more efficiently into the blood brain barrier when Terpenes are present, allowing them to bind to receptors in the endocannabinoid system.
Although further research is needed, early literature indicates that Myrcene may even reduce the spread of cancer cells, especially when paired with CBD, which naturally suppresses the proliferation of excessive cells and helps reduce the size of tumours.
Although we welcome to presence of Myrcene and Juniper within his carefully crafted bright and aromatic Gin, the Myrcene Hemp Gin is not intended to be or consumed as a medicinal product.
