This species of Terpene has a distinctive citrus smell. It is found in fruits like mango.

Research completed by Dr Ethan Russo showed that Myrcene exhibited properties that promoted muscle relaxation and had a sedative effect when tested on mice.

It also exhibited anti-inflammatory properties and presented as an effective pain-reliever in the same studies. More recent studies conducted in the last few years have shown Myrcene to have potentially cytotoxic properties – it can limit the growth and replication of malignant cells.

This is still being explored by researches.
