Humulene is a common terpene and essential oil. Did you know you experience terpenes on a daily basis? Terpenes are diverse, naturally occurring molecules in nearly every plant. They are what determine a plant’s aroma and flavor.

Humulene is one of the most common terpenes found in cannabis. Humulene’s distinct scent has notes of spice and musk with earthy and woody aroma. Humulene is also found in hops which gives beer its distinct bitter flavor. You can find Humulene in pepper, sage, balsam fir trees, clove, basil and cannabis.
