About

Sometimes called the “dietary cannabinoid”, caryophyllene is known to bind to CB2 receptors in a way that amplifies the effects of CBD and other cannabinoids. 

It also seems to protect gastric cells and exhibit some anti-malarial properties.

With a peppery-spiced wood flavor, this terpene is best known for its therapeutic potential, especially alongside cannabinoid treatments.
