Terpene Profile: Terpinolene

Terpene Profile: Terpinolene

What is Terpinolene?

Terpinolene is one of the cannabis plant’s 200 terpenes. Terpenes are natural chemical compounds that have protective effects and fragrant aromas. The unique combination of terpenes in a cannabis plant is what gives each strain its different flavors and medicinal benefits.

Terpinolene is found in many cannabis strains, but usually in small amounts. Unlike other terpenes that have a distinct flavor profile, terpinolene is multi-dimensional. You’ll notice floral, pine, herbaceous, and citrus notes. It is also found in plants like nutmeg, cumin, apples, tea tree, and lilac.

Benefits of Terpinolene

Terpinolene is said to have a fresh aroma and uplifting effect on the mind. Here are a few of its potential benefits: 

  • Calms and uplifts the mind.

    Some studies suggest that terpinolene can help calm the nervous system to reduce issues like restlessness, insomnia, and anxiety.

  • Supports the immune system.

    Studies show that terpinolene has antimicrobial and antifungal effects. This is why it is a popular ingredient in many soaps and cleansing products. Within the body, this terpene may support the immune system and the fight against microbes. 

What is Terpinolene Used For?

Because terpinolene has such an uplifting and fresh profile, it is often used in soaps, perfumes, and other personal care products.
