Ocimene is a naturally occurring monoterpene, which is a class of terpenes characterized by two isoprene units linked together, resulting in a molecular formula of C10H16. This volatile compound is found in a variety of plants, including cannabis, where it is produced in the trichomes along with other terpenes and cannabinoids. In the context of cannabis, ocimene contributes to the plant’s scent profile with its sweet and herbaceous aroma, which is often described as having woody and citrusy undertones. The presence of ocimene in cannabis strains is associated not only with the modulation of the plant’s fragrance but also with potential therapeutic effects. Research suggests that ocimene may exhibit anti-inflammatory and decongestant properties, although the exact mechanisms by which it exerts these effects in the human body, particularly in relation to cannabis consumption, require further investigation. Additionally, ocimene may play a role in the entourage effect, a phenomenon where the synergistic interaction of cannabinoids and terpenes enhances the overall efficacy of the cannabis plant’s bioactive compounds.
