delta 3 carene

Have you ever medicated with a cannabis strain that caused dry mouth and eyes? If so, it is likely that that strain contained a fair amount of delta 3 carene. Carene is known to remove excess fluids from the body, which helps to explain why certain strains cause dry-mouth and dry eyes while others do not. Although most medical cannabis patients would prefer to avoid dry mouth, carene can be useful, especially for those with MS, because it reduces inflammation and minimizes joint pain. While more studies are needed on the subject, the initial results hold promise for medical marijuana patients who are in need of pain-relief stemming from inflammation.� Recreational cannabis users have a right to argue that carene should be avoided, but for medical marijuana patients who suffer on a daily basis from inflammation, this terpene can be used to to boost the anti-inflammatory properties of a strain's cannabinoid profile.
