Terpene Tuesday: Terpineol

by | May 9, 2017

Terpineol is found in many cannabis strains, but it’s also widely used for its lovely floral scent. While it occurs naturally, it can also be derived from pinene. It has a wide variety of therapeutic uses, and it plays an important role in our soothing Equanimity tincture.

Terpineol as a Functional Ingredient

Skullcap is one of the powerful medicinal herbs that you’ll find in our Equanimity tincture. This tincture addresses sleep disturbances caused by anxiety, nervous tendencies or tension. (Tension often manifests as tension headaches.)

We target these specific complaints by carefully selecting herbs that work synergistically with cannabis. Skullcap alone is an effective treatment for a wide range of nervous conditions including anxiety, ADD, and insomnia. Combining nutrient-rich herbs like skullcap, valerian, chamomile, and lemon balm with our Gold Country Afgoo creates quite the medicinal elixir!
