Terpene Spotlight on “Limonene”

It seems there is a medical aspect to  terpenes, as well as to cannabinoids. Let’s look closer at the terpene “limonene.”


Limonene is a terpene that conveys a smell of citrus (orange, tangerine, lemon, lime, or grapefruit), juniper, rosemary, or peppermint. Lemons and other citrus fruits contain large quantities of limonene, especially in the rind. Thus, when one perceives an aroma of citrus in cannabis (or any other plant), it is literally the same chemical that produces this odor in fruits such as lemons, limes and oranges.

While pleasant aromas are certainly desired on the part of recreational smokers, patients and the severely ill are more concerned with medicinal efficacy. Like myrcene, limonene has several medical benefits. It has been found to aid in digestion, to alleviate depression, and to contribute anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties.

Limonene is also an anti-inflammatory, giving it efficacy for a number of conditions and an anti-proliferative, meaning it is an effective anti-cancer medicine. The anti-cancer properties of limonene are what have generated the greatest media attention and are arguably the molecule’s most promising trait.

This therapeutic terpene is known to help fight anxiety and even treats acid reflux (heartburn). Limonene also can enhance one’s mood and has even been found to dissolve gallstones.

If you are trying to keep up with the wave of science being spawned by re-legalization, this complete original post is worth your time.  You will also find some strain recommendations in that post.
