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

Our tinctures use herbs that have therapeutic properties that contribute to the entourage effect of the medicine. 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 selected 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!

The first time I drove through Nevada I fell in love with the way the desert smells at night. I didn’t know it at the time, but that scent comes from sagebrush, the state flower. Sagebrush is high in borneol, which is part of the reason it smells so good. Borneol is another terpene commonly found in cannabis, but we don’t know much about it yet.

Pinene is the most common terpene found in the plant world, possibly because it’s a natural insect repellant. (Although it doesn’t repel all insects — olive flies use it as an aphrodisiac.) Unsurprisingly, it has a very piney aroma, making it easy to identify.

Terpene Spotlight: Myrcene

Myrcene is one of the most common terpenes found in cannabis. It’s commonly believed that myrcene helps THC pass through the blood-brain barrier more efficiently, which results in a stronger, faster high. While the scientific evidence for this is limited, it’s hard to discredit the vast number of people who have experienced this phenomenon.
