Terpene Valencene

Welcome Spaced Cadets! In this blog, we will continue covering one of the many terpenes. This terpene is Valencene. If you haven’t heard of this terpene and are looking for something for pain relief, keep reading to learn more about this terpene!


The terpene Valencene is another sesquiterpene that can produce citrus, herb, wood, and sweet flavor profiles. Valence is found in many citrus fruits like oranges, grapefruit, mangoes, and Valencia oranges. While Valencene gives off a sweet aroma, it is used highly in insect repellents. Valencene is also found in cleaning products and cosmetics. This terpene is known for the aroma it gives off. Valencene can be found in Tangie, Sour Diesel, Clementine, and Agent Orange. Effects that are common in these strains are uplifting, creative, and energetic.  


Valencene has some potential health benefits, including skin care. Valencene could even be a booster of chemotherapy drugs. This terpene can help your skin from eczema, wrinkles, loss of color, age spots, and more. Two studies in 2016 on the terpene Valencene showed promise in helping clear eczema. It also helped improve photoaging. Valencene also has anti-inflammatory, anti-allergy, and neuroprotective. A recent study in 2021 was published and showed that Valencene, along with other terpenes, could cross the blood-brain barrier. The purpose was to prove its antioxidant effects on dementia. 


Valencene has a lot of potential health benefits and is still being further studied. Pairing Valencene and Ocimene could be a great combination for skin care products. We have a disposable Clementine if you are looking for the effects of Valencene. Ask our budtenders if you have more questions or concerns! They will be glad to help!
