This #TerpeneTuesday we’re going to show a little love to Ocimene.
Commonly found in herbs and spices such as mint, parsley and pepper; fruits such as mangoes; and flowers such as orchids, this terpene is described as fragrant and herbaceous.
Ocimene has a wide variety of benefits and has shown positive results when used as an antiviral, antiseptic, decongestant, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory.
With a boiling point at only 150 degrees Fahrenheit, it’s best to consume flower rich with this terpene, like Sour Diesel and OG Kush, at low temperatures.
The most interesting thing about Ocimene is that it showed specificity and effectiveness against SARS virus. Who knew?
