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.

Terpineol Uses

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.

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.
