Organic Care of California BLOG

 Here is a few Blogs written by the owners Chaz & Shantel Cornellier about the industry and things they have experienced or learned while owning a cannabis delivery service in Chico, Ca in 2017 under Prop 215 and then moving to Sacramento to own a State Liscensed Delivery, C9-0000003-LIC, immediately in 2018. It has been a crazy ride and Chaz loves to explain what the market is doing and how he sees the company doing in the near future.

Exploring the Power of Caryophyllene: A Closer Look at Cannabis Terpenes

 In the vast and intricate world of cannabis, there exists a myriad of compounds that contribute to its diverse effects and aromas. Among these compounds, terpenes stand out for their aromatic qualities and potential therapeutic benefits. One such terpene that has garnered attention for its unique properties is Caryophyllene.


Unveiling the Essence of Caryophyllene

Caryophyllene, also known as beta-caryophyllene, is a prominent terpene found not only in cannabis but also in various plants, including black pepper, cloves, and hops. What sets Caryophyllene apart is its interaction with the body's endocannabinoid system, particularly its ability to bind to cannabinoid receptors, albeit indirectly.
Unlike most terpenes, Caryophyllene engages with the body's CB2 receptors, which are primarily associated with the immune system. This interaction suggests potential anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties, making Caryophyllene a subject of interest in the realm of holistic health and wellness.

The Top Three Cannabis Strains Rich in Caryophyllene

Bubba Kush: Bubba Kush is an indica-dominant strain renowned for its tranquilizing effects and earthy aroma. Caryophyllene's presence in Bubba Kush contributes to its potential for pain relief and relaxation, making it a favorite among cannabis enthusiasts seeking relief from stress and insomnia.
Girl Scout Cookies: Girl Scout Cookies, a hybrid strain cherished for its euphoric high and sweet, minty flavor profile, contains notable levels of Caryophyllene. This terpene enhances the strain's therapeutic potential, offering potential benefits for managing anxiety, depression, and chronic pain.
Sour Diesel: Sour Diesel, a legendary sativa strain recognized for its uplifting effects and diesel-like aroma, also contains Caryophyllene in significant quantities. Its energizing properties, coupled with Caryophyllene's potential anti-inflammatory effects, make Sour Diesel a popular choice for daytime use among medical and recreational users alike.

Beyond Cannabis: Other Sources of Caryophyllene

While cannabis remains a prominent source of Caryophyllene, this terpene can also be found in several other plants and spices:
Black Pepper: Caryophyllene is abundant in black pepper, contributing to its pungent flavor and potential health benefits. Incorporating black pepper into culinary creations or consuming it alongside cannabis may enhance the entourage effect, maximizing the therapeutic potential of both compounds.
Cloves: Cloves, with their warm and aromatic profile, contain significant amounts of Caryophyllene. Apart from its culinary uses, cloves have been traditionally utilized for their potential analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties, which can complement the effects of cannabis in holistic wellness practices.

Hops: Hops, a key ingredient in brewing beer, also contain Caryophyllene. Beyond its role in crafting flavorful brews, Caryophyllene in hops may offer subtle therapeutic benefits, although further research is needed to fully elucidate its potential effects.

Conclusion: Embracing the Potential of Caryophyllene

In the realm of cannabis science and holistic wellness, the role of terpenes like Caryophyllene cannot be understated. Beyond contributing to the plant's aroma and flavor, Caryophyllene holds promise for its potential therapeutic effects, particularly in modulating inflammation and supporting overall well-being.
As research into cannabis and its constituents continues to evolve, exploring the synergistic interplay between cannabinoids and terpenes remains a fascinating endeavor. Whether through the consumption of cannabis strains rich in Caryophyllene or the integration of Caryophyllene-rich foods and spices into daily routines, embracing the potential of this versatile terpene invites us to embark on a journey towards holistic health and vitality.
