Caryophyllene is one of the most abundant terpenes found in cannabis. In fact, it’s so abundant that caryophyllene oxide is what drug-sniffing dogs smell when they identify cannabis.

It is well-studied and offers some exciting medical potential, particularly for people dealing with pain, cancer, or alcohol abuse. Because of the way it binds to CB2 receptors, this terpene is often categorized as a cannabinoid. It’s actually considered the first dietary cannabinoid. While we’ve talked about this terpene in the past, today we’d like to dive in a little deeper.
