Limonene is a terpene, or natural chemical found in plants. Limonene is found in high concentrations in the peels of citrus fruits. It is also a dominant terpene in cannabis flowers. People smell orange, lime, lemon and grapefruit in this wonderful terpene.
Limonene not only dictates the distinct smell of citrus fruits and cannabis, it can also act on receptors and neurotransmitters and enhance CBD activity.
Some of Limonene’s studied effects include:
May help relieve heartburn and gastric reflux
Improves absorption of other terpenes and cannabinoids, like CBD by way of the skin, mucous membranes, and digestive tract
