Terpene of the Month: Pinene

The rich, dense forest aroma behind pinene’s distinct profile  is due to the twin terpenes alpha-pinene and beta-pinene. Besides being found in cannabis plants, this terpene can be found in many plants, including rosemary, orange peels, basil, dill, turpentine, and parsley. Pinene has an anti-inflammatory effect and has been seen to improve airflow, indicating it may be beneficial for those with asthma. Those suffering from other inflammatory disorders, such as arthritis, Crohn’s disease, and certain cancers, may also find relief from pinene. In addition, pinene is known to promote alertness and focus. This terpene can be found in strains like Jack Herer, Island Sweet Skunk, and Blue Dream.

Pinene is known to improve alertness and focus. In fact, these twin terpenes are so efficient that pinene is known to counter the short-term memory loss associated with THC!
