Most commonly found in connifer and pine trees(not suprisingly), but also present in our favorite budding plants ;) a-pinene my personal favorite terpene. Why do I enjoy pinene so much? I find straigns high in pinene tend to be more "uplifting" or "inspiring", I like to spend alot of time day dreaming about things and pinene seems to bring out the creativity.
Strains commonly containing large ammounts of pinene are:
- Jack Herer
- Pinene which is a monoterpene(meaning its made up of 2 isopreme units) has many benefits, it can act as an anti-inflamitory agent.
- It can act as a Anti-spasmodic agents(helps breatheing deeper, expecially in those with asthma).
- claimed to "help offset" the short term memory loss caused by thc, and "promotes awareness" and be "stimulant like"
- it also has been shown to possibly act as an "anti-cancer agent" as have soo many compounds in cannabis.
