Spicy Caryophyllene

Posted by Kelly Graham on
Black Pepper and Cannabis

Built on a foundation of hand-selected aromatics, the Terpenes found in hemp play an essential role in Fog & Tree’s signature fragrance. Hemp has over 140 different Terpenes with scents ranging from woodsy and funky to sweet and herbal, all with their own individual flavor and aroma fingerprint.

From the wide array of Terpenes, Caryophyllene is one of our favorites for its spicy, peppery scent and herbal undertones. Caryophyllene is not only renowned for its warm aroma, but also for its powerful wellness potential.

Read on for a more detailed look at this bold and spicy Terpene.

Caryophyllene Basics

Naturally found in hops, cloves, and cinnamon, Caryophyllene is one delicious smelling little molecule. It’s also commonly associated with the bite you get from freshly cracked black pepper and the herbal notes found in oregano.

While its scent and flavor are incredibly unique, that’s not the only thing that makes this Terpene special — it is the only Terpene that binds to cannabinoid receptors making it an atypical cannabinoid. This allows it to affect the body by influencing the endocannabinoid system, which controls a wide range of internal functions. In other words, Caryophyllene works deeper beneath the surface than your average Terpene to provide targeted results.

Caryophyllene Benefits

Caryophyllene may not be a household name, but it is making waves in the wellness arena for its host of potential uses. While research is beginning into this tiny molecule, research has linked it to:

● Improved mood

● Pain relief

● Anti-Inflammatory benefits

● Antioxidant properties

Whether used as a topical or as aromatherapy, Caryophyllene may be able to improve your day-to-day life.

Improved Mood

Baking spice scents, like cloves and cinnamon, are warm and comforting but also energizing and exciting — they make you feel right at home while engaging your senses. Essential oils high in Caryophyllene have been known to boost your mood no matter what ails you. Thus, a splash of Fog & Tree a day may keep the blues away.

Pain Relief

Caryophyllene works as an anti-inflammatory to address the root cause of minor aches and pains. Many hemp brands, including Fog & Tree, use this powerful Terpene in topicals for its ability to target pain on a deeper level than other Terpenes.

Anti-inflammatory Properties

Treating inflammation is not only good for pain but it also good for addressing conditions like redness and irritation found on the skin. Whether found in our Hair Mask or Beard Conditioner, you can say goodbye to itchy, inflamed skin.

Anti-oxidant Properties

Caryophyllene also strengthens and protects the skin and hair with its antioxidant properties. Antioxidants defend from free radical damage which can cause the skin and hair to look and feel dull. 

Final Thoughts

Caryophyllene is one boldly scented hemp Terpene with the added bonus of wellness wizardry. With benefits ranging from improved mood to pain relief and scents like cloves and black pepper, this spicy Terpene is right at home in our line of Fog & Tree products.
