About

With an earthy, clove-like smell, myrcene may be the heaviest hitter in terms of sensation among all terpenes found in cannabis.

As the dominant terpene in most cannabis flower, myrcene is what’s heavily-responsible for the “couch lock” effect many cannabis users describe, particularly in Indica strains. 

This known sedative and muscle relaxant is found most heavily in OG, Purple, and Blue Dreem-related strains.
