Beta-caryophyllene is an earthy 5-star terpene found in peppers, clove, cinnamon, and oregano! This terpene is well studied by science to demonstrate positive affects on the human body, including inflammation reduction and easing anxiety. Give it a try in your own kitchen. Grind up fresh clove in your Cuisinart to release the fresh terpenes and notice a grounding affect that releases tension. This well studied terpene is been discovered to engage the bodies endocannabinoid system which regulates mood, appetite, and pain perception. WOW! This means TERPENES alone initiate engagement of the CB1/CB2 receptor. The human body is AMAZING and dynamic.
