Humulene, also known as α-humulene or α-caryophyllene, is a naturally occurring monocyclic sesquiterpene, which is a terpenoid consisting of 3 isoprene units. It is found in the essential oils of Humulus lupulus (hops) from which it derives its name. It is an isomer of β-caryophyllene, and the two are often found together as a mixture in nature. It is also found in Lindera strychnifolia, and is one of the chemical compounds that contribute to the taste of the spice Vietnamese coriander. It also contributes to the characteristic aroma of Humulus lupulus and Cannabis sativa, where it is present in the essential oil of the plants.
