Beta-caryophyllene (BCP) is a terpene commonly found in the cannabis plant, as well as in many other plants including black pepper, cinnamon, and cloves. BCP is a unique terpene in that it is both a terpene and a cannabinoid.
It binds to the CB2 receptors in the endocannabinoid system, making it the only terpene is known to have a direct interaction with the human body's cannabis receptors. This interaction makes BCP a potentially valuable compound for the treatment of various medical conditions.
Studies have shown that BCP has a number of therapeutic properties, including anti-inflammatory, analgesic (pain-relieving), and anxiolytic (anxiety-relieving) effects. It is also being studied for its potential in the treatment of conditions such as anxiety, depression, and osteoporosis. In addition, BCP has been shown to have antimicrobial and antifungal properties, making it a potentially valuable compound in the treatment of various infections.
