Updated: Jan 25

Welcome back, Cannabis enthusiast! If you haven’t read the last one, it mentions the terpene Linalool. Check it out! This one will be another minor terpene, Terpinolene, but do not let it fool you with it being a minor! It is widely known for its anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties. Just like any other terpene, Terpinolene has many benefits, effects, and distinctive aromas. Follow along to learn what they are and if Terpinolene is a terpene for you!


Terpinolene is a terpene compound found in various plants, including cannabis. In cannabis, Terpinolene is commonly found in strains with a citrusy or woody scent, adding complexity to the overall aroma profile. Next time you indulge in your favorite strain, take a moment to appreciate the presence of terpinolene and other terpenes and their potential.


Terpinolene, one of the many terpenes found in cannabis, possesses incredible benefits that will leave you in awe. A few benefits that it has to offer are its anti-cancer, anti-oxidant, and sedative properties. More extensive research is going on exploring Terpinolene, but in a Vitro study, “terpinolene demonstrated that it was improving a wound through a reduction of inflammation and oxidative stress.” Whenever you pick your next strain, select one with a high percentage of Terpinolene to help you if you will benefit from its properties.


Even though Terpinolene is another minor terpene, it offers a range of effects that can enhance your cannabis experience! Terpinolene can help you relax and relieve some stress from a bad day. Just the smell of terpinolene can enhance your sensory experience of consuming cannabis. It helps neurologically with mood enhancement, creativity, and even mental clarity! Just as Linalool had its Entourage Effects, so does Terpinolene. Combining it with THC can significantly give you excitement and imagination. CBD and Terpinolene give off a calming, relaxing effect while reducing stress and anxiety. Combining it with CBG can improve your mental clarity and focus even more excellently!


You can find Terpinolene in nutmeg, tea tree, and lilacs. It is in well-known cannabis strains such as Golden Goat, Jack Herer, Golden Pineapple, and even Pineapple Kush! Golden Goat, to me, was already a top strain in my books, and knowing all these great benefits that come with it is even more exciting to learn! The aroma of Terpinolene is described as a woody, pine, and sweet smell. The flavors you can taste are citrusy taste. It is also used in perfumes, soaps, and other cosmetic products.


Another great minor terpene found just about everywhere and in everyday products! It can help you with multiple problems and prepare you for your day. As there is further research on Terpinolene, the results are endless! After reading this blog, if Terpinolene would help you, ask our budtenders to recommend a strain with Terpinolene!
