Terpenes: The Essentials – Limonene

the apothecarium a recreational and medical marijuana dispensary discuss limonene

Written by Cameron Klar

Terpenes are the aromatic oils that give each cannabis strain its individual fragrance and taste.  These molecular compounds have also been known to carry an array of medicinal benefits. When combined with other cannabinoids and terpenes, the synergistic healing nature of cannabis truly takes effect but each terpene has unique characteristics of their own.

Limonene is an abundant cannabis terpene with an unmistakable citrus aroma, most commonly resembling tangerine, grapefruit and lemon.  Also found in high concentrations in the rinds of citrus fruits, limonene is often used in cosmetics, household cleaners, and as flavoring agents in food.  

Mood elevation and euphoria are typical effects from cannabis strains high in limonene, which can aid with anxiety and depression.  Limonene can also provide stress relief and often will yield a more energetic experience. Digestive issues may be improved through limonene’s potent antibacterial and antifungal effects.  Limonene also boasts powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.

A study from 2012 suggests limonene’s anti-inflammatory nature may play a vital role in possible cancer prevention.  In 2010, a study looked at the efficacy of limonene for potentially treating asthma with promising results.  Another 2012 study examined its anxiolytic effects, indicating limonene can aid with anxiety related conditions.

Limonene is known to allow more efficient absorption of other cannabis terpenes, making it a critical component in the overall effect unique to each strain.  Whether you’re looking to uplift your mood or relieve stress, knowing how much limonene is in your cannabis can play a key role in selecting the ideal strain.  Feel free to ask any of our knowledgeable patient consultants to assist with any questions you may have.
