The smell is warming with similarities to black pepper and similar therapeutic uses as well. Diluted down heavily in carrier oil, cubeb can be considered useful for treating flatulence, aiding digestion and easing general muscle aches. The natural chemistry comprises mainly of alpha- & beta cubebene, cubebol, alpha-copaene, delta-cadinene, sabinene.”
