When seeking the best cannabis strains for anxiety, focusing on terpene content is crucial.

What are Terpenes?

Terpenes are chemical compounds found within the essential oils of cannabis plants. According to the National Institutes of Health, terpenes are “widely used and investigated by their pharmacological properties.” 

Terpenes give cannabis strains their distinct smell and taste. While most recognize terpenes by these means, terpenes also serve as a blueprint for how a strain will affect you.

Best Cannabis Strains for Depression

Depression is a debilitating condition that robs you of the joy you deserve. Motivation slips away while those around you miss your presence and personality. While medications exist to help treat depression, they often come with side effects that can be equally debilitating. 

When seeking alternatives to these medications, look for the best cannabis strains for depression containing these terpenes.


Myrcene is the most common terpene found within cannabis. Most recognize cannabis by myrcene’s earthy, musky aroma. 

Myrcene helps those suffering from depression and insomnia through its strong sedative properties. Studies have shown this terpene to act as a sleep aid and have been attributed to be one of the causes of “couch lock”—greatly reduced physical activity brought on by intense bodily relaxation.


Limonene is nature’s second most common terpene, possessing a distinctly sour, zesty aroma. 

Commonly used in aromatherapy, limonene’s bright, fruity scent of citrus has been known to revitalize and refresh the mind and body. Because of this, limonene is excellent for relieving anxiety and depression.

As an added benefit, limonene has been known to reduce the severity of acid reflux, a common symptom associated with high stress.


Commonly found in many flowers and plants such as lavender, mint, cinnamon, and rosewood, linalool is a terpene that emits a floral scent similar to lavender with gentle hints of citrus. 

Research has found that linalool is especially effective in tapering levels of anxiety and symptoms of depression. The soothing properties in linalool that promote stress relief also act as a powerful sleep aid that can help those who have insomnia get a good night’s rest.
