Officer Dick Downey's Pot Report
Your Illinois Cannabis Authority
Possible Medicinal Properties: I could not find much formal medical research on the medical benefits of this terpene.
Valencene gets its name from the Valencia Orange and often contributes to a cannabis strain's citrus qualities.
Valencene has been shown to repel ticks and mosquitoes at lesser concentrations than DEET and without the toxicity to humans.
Scent Profile: sweet, fresh citrusy-orange, grapefruit, woody notes
Flavor Profile: citrus, orange, warm, wood
NOTE: Some strains of cannabis can include high levels of Valencene; however, since this is not always the case it's being categorized on this website as a 'Secondary' terpene in cannabis.
Found In (partial list): Valencia oranges, grapefruit, other citrus, cannabis
