Terpenes: the Essentials - Caryophyllene

Caryophyllene, also known as beta-caryophyllene, is a primary terpene responsible for the spicy or peppery aroma found in several cannabis strains.  Often referred to as a sesquiterpene, due to its larger molecular size, caryophyllene is also found in black pepper, oregano, cloves, basil and rosemary.
