Terpenes

Terpenes: Terpinolene

Terpinolene is a terpene found in cannabis that produces a floral aroma similar to pine needles. Like most other terpenes, terpinolene is produced by a variety of other plants such as, apples, conifer, cumin, lilac, mint, nutmeg, parsnip, and tea tree. Terpinolene can exhibit a sedative effect when it is consumed in a sufficient dose. This terpene also provides antibacterial and antifungal properties. Research from The National Center for Biotechnology tells us that it may also work in tandem with linalool to produce an enhanced sedative effect. Unlike most other terpenes, terpinolene does not deliver anti-inflammatory or pain killing properties.
