Foods that contain beta-caryophyllene: black pepper, rosemary, oregano, cloves, and other dark leafy green herbal plants.
Medical benefits: Because BCP binds to CB3 receptors, it can be highly useful for inflammatory disorders (example: arthritis, multiple sclerosis or chronic pain). BCP can also be beneficial for treating anxiety & depression without the overwhelming mental effects from THC. BCP can also be gastroprotective, which can be helpful for patients with ulcers or even just regular indigestion. BCP will selectively bind to CB2 receptors (which are actually found outside of the brain and in all other parts of the body), so it is not a psychoactive component of cannabis. There is some debate on whether or not BCP is actually a cannabinoid or a terpene because of it’s ability to selectively bind to the CB2 receptors.
Types of strains that betacaryophyllene is commonly found: Arjan’s Haze #2, Super Silver Haze, Neville’s Haze.
