Welcome back to #TerpeneTuesday with the Nature’s Care Patient Community!
This Tuesday we’re exploring the benefits of β-Caryophyllene (or Beta Caryophyllene).
β-Caryophyllene is the only terpene known to interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system (CB2) and offers a variety of therapeutic uses such as pain relief, help with depression, anxiety relief and can even slow damage to the nervous system and the brain.
If that’s not impressive enough, a recent study shows that β-Caryophyllene’s (or BCP’s) abilities to reduce stress are powerful enough to potentially make humans live longer.
Still not impressed? What if we told you BCP can also help you stop drinking? It’s true – a 2014 study discovered that BCP reduced voluntary intake of alcohol and was recommended for use in treatment of alcoholism.
