Beta-Caryophyllene is the most common sesquiterpene found in nature and is found to some degree in almost every essential oil. It is a main component in things like copaiba balsam, cannabis, hops, cananga, black pepper and many others. There is much research on the powerful anti-inflammatory properties of Beta-Caryophyllene in addition to being an antifungal and antiseptic.
