Myrcene is the smallest of the monoterpenes and has a flavor and smell described as earthy, fruity and clove-like. Found abundantly in hops, sweet basil, mangos and cannabis, myrcene is the reason your beer can smell heavily like hops and also responsible for some of those unexpected effects from consuming cannabis as it acts synerginistically with other cannabinoids and terpenoids to sometimes enhance effects and other times inhibit effects all the while amplifying many of the beneficial qualities of the terpenes contained within the strain.  It has been shown to have relaxing and sedative properties in lower to medium doses (.03-.07%) while the amplification effects can seemingly turn a strain with high amount fo myrcene (.75-1.5%) into a heavy hitting sativa as it works with the limonene and other energetic terpenes in effects inhibiting much of the sedative effects is has come to be known for.
