The Unique Terpene - Terpinolene
This terpene is in the terpinene and pinene family with a unique double carbon bond. It is commonly combined with CBD products because of its synergistic qualities. While it shares many characteristics with the pinene terpene, its aroma and flavor are far more complex.
In addition to many cannabis and hemp strains, terpinolene is found in turnips and turpentine. What makes this terpene so unique is how it interacts with cannabinoids. Initially, research showed that terpinolene acts as a sedative because of its impact on muscle motility. However, researchers were surprised to discover that terpinolene has a stimulating quality when combined with THC. This matches the experience of cannabis smokers who felt that terpinolene-rich strains created cerebral stimulation and heightened energy.
In cannabis or hemp, the scent of terpinolene can be described as diesel, gassy, or reminiscent of Pinesol cleaner. This terpene also naturally occurs in lilac, apples, sage, conifer trees, and tea tree oil. The fragrance shows itself differently depending on which plant it presents in. It can be sharp, woodsy, earthy, floral, or herbaceous.
This terpene has excellent anti-fungal properties. It naturally occurs in concentration in tea tree oil, for example, which is often used for anti-fungal and anti-yeast treatments. It also has been shown to have anti-microbial properties by inhibiting bacterial growth. While there is a great need for more research, terpinolene did conclusively show great potential as an anti-cancer treatment for brain tumor cells in a 2013 Turkish study.
