Terpene Profile

Power Plant is known to have a sharp and peppery taste. This is mostly due to the abounding caryophyllene terpene present in this strain. Terpenes are responsible for the aromas in plants including cannabis. They also enhance the therapeutic value of the plant by offering their own unique medicinal benefits. The terpenes and cannabinoids work in synergy in order to boost and promote a longer lasting health effect. Power Plant has the following abundant terpenes: Caryophyllene, linalool, valencene, camphene and alpha bisabolol.

Caryophyllene

This terp gives of a pepperish scent with spicy under tones. It is also found in black pepper, cloves, cinnamon, basil and oregano. It is able to bind to CB2 receptors in the body; this makes it a potent anti inflammatory agent. Recent research has shown that this terp is beneficial in treating alcohol withdrawal symptoms. It is also useful as an anti inflammatory and anti anxiety agent.

This terp has the smell of fresh lavender. It has great relaxing effects on the mind and is useful in treating symptoms of stress and anxiety. It has also been shown to have some anti convulsant properties, much in the same way that diazepam acts.
