Carene, scientifically known as Delta-3 Carene, is a bicyclic monoterpene that has a pungent but sweet odor and often smells like lemons or musk. It is also described as having a woody character that gives it an earthy aroma. Delta-3 Carene is insoluble in water but can be dissolved in organic solvents such as fats and oils. It has a transparent to mildly yellow appearance once dissolved. It occurs naturally and can be commonly found in basil, rosemary, turpentine.
Delta-3 Carene is widely used in cosmetics, food flavoring, perfumes but one of the major uses of this terpene is that it is an antihistamine, which means it is used to treat various kinds of allergies. The tangy and citrus aroma of this strain makes it enjoyable with real healing benefits. Another interesting property of Carene is its bone healing and strengthening ability. Scientists are discovering its potential to fight arthritis and osteoporosis.
Several studies also claim the anti-fungal properties of Delta-3 Carene are therapeutic and display how the composition of this terpene allows it to act as an anti-inflammatory agent. It might be useful in fighting edema. These benefits show a lot of potential in further growth and development of Carene in the medial substance industry.
