You’ve probably used various products that contain terpineol, and you didn’t even know it at the time. Terpineol is often used to enhance the scent or flavor of a given product while also helping users find peace and serenity with its many beneficial healing properties.
Below, you’ll be able to find what strains are high in terpineol and wrap your head around why terpineol is in high demand. Now that the cannabis industry is evolving towards places it’s never been before; we’re taking the sought-after information given by experts to help our fellow potheads find the best products that will help them in the long run.
Found in over 150 plants (including cannabis), terpineol is any combination of four monoterpene alcohol isomers, the most common is α-terpineol. You can find terpineol in strains that are high in pinene, which emphasizes the powerful aroma and potency while pleasing the nose and palate with its earthy and rich taste/scent.
Similar to other concentrated terpenes, you cannot use them directly. Instead, you want to dilute the product to around 5% or less with help from regular and common uses. You can add terpineol to essential oils, salves, and lotions for your skin’s cannabinoid receptors to absorb the product and put it to work.
Since terpineol offers a potent and unique flavor, it’s also common to use it in baked goods, condiments, candies, beverages, dairy products, and chewing gum. However, make sure that your specific terpineol isolate is safe for consumption, which should be labeled on the packaging.
Terpinol has a distinct aroma to it, as it is often used to enhance the scent of products like soap, lotion, and perfume. You’ll know that it’s terpinol once your nose is smacked with its unique pine smoke-based aroma.
Yes, it can be found in cannabis, but it occurs naturally in lilacs, pine trees, lime blossoms, and eucalyptus sap, so it’s a fresh and inviting scent more than anything.
Although terpineol isn’t one of the more known primary cannabis terpenes, it’s loved for its range of powerful and effective health benefits. It should go without saying that users will feel ultra-relaxed when ingesting terpineol, but there are countless other positives that the compound has to offer. It does relieve stress, pain, and anxiety, but it’s most notorious for boosting the immune system and fighting off bacteria.
To go more in-depth, terpineol is a powerful compound that’s also an antibiotic, antioxidant, and anti-tumor. To put it simply, terpinol is a cancer fighter and boosts the immune system with needed properties to fight off any virus or disease. It’s also a sedative, anti-inflammatory, antimalarial, and anxiolytic.
