As with Linalool, Limonene also exists in two isomeric forms (compounds with the same molecular formula—in this case, C10 H16—but with different structures), namely l-Limonene and d-Limonene. Here, within the context of cannabis, we're referring to d-Limonene.
Limonene is an isomer of Beta-Myrcene, which means that they share the same chemical formula but differ in structure.
