Terpenes are small, aromatic molecules in cannabis that give its smell and flavor. Though terpenes aren’t just found in cannabis—they can be found in many natural plants, fruits, and flowers as well. There are more than 150 different terpenes that have been scientifically identified. Different groupings of terpenes in different strains of cannabis give distinctive flavors and smells. They also attribute to different strains giving different effects when consumed.
Here is a little information about some of the best terpenes for sleep:
Myrcene. Commonly occurring in cannabis, this terpene is also found in a lot of fruits and herbs, including mangoes, basil, thyme, and lemongrass, as well as in the sleep-promoting plants hops and ylang ylang. Myrcene has been shown to have sedative effects. It also functions as an anti-inflammatory.
Caryophyllene. This is a stress, anxiety and pain-relieving terpene that may also promote sleep, thanks to these relaxing, anxiolytic and analgesic properties. This terpene has a peppery, spicy scent, and is also found in cloves and black pepper.
Limonene. This citrus-flavored terpene, which is found in citrus peels as well as in cannabis and other plants, has been shown to reduce anxiety and stress, according to research. Limonene may also have anti-depressant effects. And research shows it may reduce OCD behaviors. Scientists think its calming, mood-lifting effects come from limonene’s ability to elevate serotonin levels in the brain. That may also make this terpene a sleep-promoter. Studies have shown that limonene may help reduce insomnia symptoms.
Terpineol. This terpene has relaxing, pain-relieving, and sedative effects. In addition to being found in some strains of cannabis, terpineol is also found in lilac, pine, and eucalyptus.
Linalool. This lavender-scented terpene is found in hundreds of plants, including cannabis. You probably know about the benefits of lavender for sleep, which I wrote about here. Studies show linalool lowers anxiety and depression symptoms, as well as help guard the immune system against damage from stress. Particularly important for sleep: linalool increases adenosine, a sedating hormone that helps us fall asleep.
A Little Something Extra: Guided Sleep Meditation
Guided sleep meditation can be helpful if you live with insomnia. Take your CBD about an hour before bed. When you're ready to fall asleep, simply allow the video below to play in the background as you drift to sleep. In addition to practicing meditation, ensure that your sleep hygiene is in place to allow for restful sleep.
