Blueberry Yum Yum Terpene Profile
If you want to replicate the scent of Blueberry Yum Yum in your product, you must first look at the specific terpene makeup of the strain. Analysis of the Blueberry Yum Yum strain found that it measured highest for the terpenes b-myrcene, b-caryophyllene, a-pinene, a-humulene, b-pinene, a-bisabolol, ocimene, d-limonene, phytol, linalool, and nerolidol.
These terpenes do more than just create the specific Blueberry Yum Yum scent. Adding these terpenes may also bring significant health benefits to the consumer. The following section addresses the impact of each significant terpene found in the strain.
Myrcene is one of the most common terpenes found in cannabis, and it is also found in wild thyme, bay leaves, and hops. Myrcene has an earthy, musky scent and helps to contribute to the sweet flavor profile. Myrcene also has strong therapeutic abilities and has been found to induce significant anti-inflammatory (2), analgesic (3), and antibacterial action (4).
Aside from cannabis, b-caryophyllene can be found in black pepper, cinnamon, basil, rosemary, and cloves. This terpene is known to produce a strong woody odor and spicy flavor, similar to black pepper. B-caryophyllene has strong pain-relieving properties and has even been found to reduce the growth and proliferation of cancer cells (5). However, this research is still in its infancy.
A-pinene is found in the oils of many coniferous trees and has a distinctive pine-like smell. The terpene is named after the pine tree because of how distinctive its scent is. A-pinene is also found in rosemary and tastes piney and resinous with hints of rosemary, basil, and orange peel. A-pinene has demonstrated an ability to reduce asthma symptoms (6) and act as an anti-inflammatory (7), an anxiolytic, a neuroprotector, a gastroprotective agent, and an anticonvulsant (8).
Humulene is known to give cannabis a hoppy or beer-like scent and has also been described as woody, spicy, and herbal. Humulene can be found in basil, sage, coriander, and clove and is said to have a slightly bitter, beer-like taste. Humulene has shown strong anti-inflammatory action (9) and may even be able to reduce cancer cell growth (10).
B-pinene has a cooling pine scent, with undertones of mint and eucalyptus. This terpene is commonly found in forest trees and has a strong fresh pine-like taste with hints of mint. B-pinene has a range of therapeutic effects, many similar to a-pinene. These health benefits include anti-anxiety, anticonvulsant, neuroprotective, and gastroprotective (11).
This terpene is commonly found in the essential oil of the German chamomile flower and has a sweet floral-like aroma. A-bisabolol is said to have a delicate, sweet floral taste and is commonly used in fragrances because of its sweet floral base notes. Bisabolol has shown significant anti-inflammatory action (12) as well as antifungal and antibiotic properties (13).
Ocimene is often used in perfumery because of its sweet herbal scent. This terpene is also found in orchids, mint, and parsley and is said to taste citrusy or fruity. Ocimene has demonstrated strong anti-inflammatory action (14), may act as an antioxidant, and could even help to treat some symptoms of diabetes through its enzymatic action (15).
As the name might suggest, limonene has a strong citrus scent, similar to lemons or oranges. Limonene typically tastes like citrus fruits and is naturally found in orange peels, citrus fruits, and a variety of tree species. Limonene has demonstrated strong anti-inflammatory action (16) and has also been found to act as an anxiolytic (17), reduce appetite (18), and support digestion (19).
Phytol has a strong grassy odor and is naturally found in green tea. This terpene is said to have a mild tea-like or floral taste. Phytol has shown strong antioxidant (20) activity and may also act as an anti-inflammatory (21) and anticonvulsant (22).
Linalool is commonly found in flowers and spice plants and has a pleasant floral scent with undertones of spice. This terpene is said to taste slightly spicy. Linalool has strong therapeutic potential and has shown an ability to improve cognitive function (23), reduce pain (24), reduce inflammation (25), and act as an antibacterial (26).
Nerolidol is found in ginger, jasmine, and tea trees where it produces a citrusy and woody scent. Nerolidol is often used in flavoring agents and perfumes and is said to have a light citrus taste.
