Humulene, The IPA of Terpenes


Where is Humulene Found?

The woody and aromatic hoppy smell of craft beer is partially to blame on the terpene Humulene. One of the most commonly found terpenes in cannabis, this terpene is also found in hops, ginger, ginseng, spearmint, and cloves. It has both a strong odor and taste that is easily recognizable in cannabis. Those who like the deep tones of craft beer may find that it is the hops high in the terpene Humulene that is giving off the pleasant taste and smell they enjoy.

Benefits of Humulene

Humulene has been used for centuries in Eastern medicinal practices due to the many benefits of the terpene. Studies done on the isolated terpene with mice showed positive and promising results. Not only is it good to help aid against inflammation, but it also has appetite suppressing and antimicrobial qualities. Individuals who use a regimen of CBD to help control inflammation may find that Smokable Marijuana high in Humulene will help aid in a similar way their CBD does. Those who hate getting the munchies when they medicate can lean toward products high in this terpene to help mitigate the urge to snack while medicated. For some the munchies can be a huge turn off when it comes to smoking cannabis.

In some studies Humulene has also been shown to have anti-cancer and anti-tumor qualities making it a good candidate for cancer patients. Keep in mind that it is always important to continue with the treatment your doctors have recommended, but marijuana can be a positive holistic medicine as well. Those who suffer from severe nausea and vomiting may also find relief with Humulene. It can help to calm the stomach for those who often struggle with stomach problems. While it may not stimulate the appetite, it can still be beneficial for patients that have a hard time eating due to nausea.
