Insect Repellant Terpene Pinene
This compound creates the unmistakable scent of conifer trees in a forest. You’ll also notice it in many hemp or cannabis strains as it is one of the primary terpenes produced by this plant. The refreshing and energizing scent of pinene can be found in other plants, including rosemary, pine, juniper, and spruce trees. In fact, this terpene is the most abundant one found in nature.
Potential Therapeutic Effects
The therapeutic potential for this terpene has been studied many times over with promising results. Studies have shown that it has anti-fungal and anti-microbial properties. For example, it can inhibit Candida Albicans, a fungus that commonly causes yeast infections in the body. Additionally, it was found to improve the efficacy of a strong antibiotic, ciprofloxacin, against staphylococcus (MRSA) bacteria.
Indeed, these powerful cleansing properties are why pinene is often included in cleaning agents that you may have in your home! In addition, the anti-microbial qualities are also likely why herbs that contain pinene are also found in many respiratory folk remedies.
The neurological possibilities for pinene are also very promising. Studies have shown that the antioxidant qualities of pinene are beneficial for long-term neurological health by supporting the neurochemical balance and inhibiting the production of specific molecules called reactive oxygen species (ROS).
