MORE ABOUT THE CANNABIS TERPENE DELTA 3 CARENE

Carene is found in cannabis and Delta 3 Carene is an isomer of Carene – in other words, it has the same atoms but they are simply put together differently.

Delta 3 Carene is the most common isomer of Carene and it is found in Rosemary, pine, bell pepper, basil and cannabis.

It is a terpene that is colorless but with a distinct scent of pine, but sweet with a hint of citrus. It supposedly tastes like lemon without the sour punch of lemon and it is not water soluble.

Carene, being typical of most terpenes, is an incredible bug repellant and often better than those chemically formulated in labs. It is also used in the cosmetics industry for perfumes and scent additives to products.

WHAT CONDITIONS CAN DELTA 3 CARENE TREAT?

INFLAMMATION: Perhaps the best quality of Delta 3 Carene is the anti-inflammatory usefulness. It is very strong as an anti-inflammatory and it is being used with good benefits by those with fibromyalgia, arthritis, bursitis, and other painful chronic conditions. Anyone with constant pain and inflammation would benefit from using this terpene.

For those using medical marijuana for these conditions, it would behoove you to seek a strain of cannabis that has been selectively bred to have higher percentages of this terpene for maximum effectiveness. The cannabinoids alone will have a great impact, but science is learning that the right combination of terpenes can also add to the benefits of using medical cannabis.

OSTEOPOROSIS AND OSTEOARTHRITIS: Carene has been shown to promote faster healing of bones as well. Scientists are interested in more research on the effects of Carene on osteoporosis and osteoarthritis, specifically. It could also be used to help supplement patients with broken bones to help them heal faster and more effectively, such as the elderly who don’t have as much healthy bone tissue due to calcium loss.

INSOMNIA: Carene also works as a sedative, so if you are having sleep issues related to illness, hormonal imbalances such as some women experience during menopause. It is effective at slowing down the brain activity to allow the relaxation that brings sleep. It also has little to no side-effects compared to prescribed sleeping pills.

ALZHEIMER’S: It has been found to increase retention and stimulate the memory in such a way that doctors and researchers are very hopeful that one day it could have a key role in treating cognitive diseases such as Alzheimer’s.

Perhaps the best quality of Delta 3 Carene is the anti-inflammatory usefulness. It is very strong as an anti-inflammatory and it is being used with good benefits by those with fibromyalgia, arthritis, bursitis, and other painful chronic conditions.
