About

With a lightly piney, spiced scent, humulene is the smell most-associated with heavy hops, despite myrcene being present there.

While highly present in cannabis, it’s among the lighter-hitting components in terms of overall effect. It does seem to supress appetite and may be beneficial for those looking to lose weight. It also possesses antibacterial properties.
