Myrcene is an earthy, citrusy terpene with an aroma suggestive of hops, cloves, and tropical fruits. Nuances of mint and mango are often detected in Myrcene’s strong fragrance. Strains known for their content of Myrcene include Phantom OG, Afghani, Bubble Gum, White Widow, Skunk #1, El Nino, Himalyan Gold, and Pure Kush. Isolated Myrcene can be naturally sourced from hops (Humulus lupulus), thyme (Thymus vulgaris), lemongrass (Cymbopogon citratus), mangoes (Mangifera indica), basil (Ocimum basilicum), and bay laurel leaves (Laurus nobilis). Myrcene is the most prevalent terpene naturally found in most varieties of cannabis. The cannabinoid THC works synergistically with Myrcene to create a stronger experience.
