High Beta Carypophyllene Organic Hemp: Beta-caryophyllene is a type of terpenoid known as a sesquiterpenoid1. It is the most abundant terpenoid found in hemp, particularly in extracts that have been heated in order to promote decarboxylation of certain components.
- Used as a food supplement.
- Beta-caryophyllene has been mainly researched for its anti-inflammatory properties, even at low doses.
- While pain, swelling and immobility are more rapidly noticeable signs of inflammation, long-term inflammation can result in tissue destruction and loss of function in the affected area, for example the joint damage seen in arthritis.
- Another mechanism behind these anti-inflammatory effects is beta-caryophyllene’s ability to affect the PGE-1 (prostaglandin E1) pathway. The prostaglandins are a family of local-acting hormones known as eicosanoids. These are produced from a fatty acid called arachidonic acid, known for its pro-inflammatory uses in the eicosanoid pathways.
