While pinene may be best known for its pine-like fragrance, it is found in conifer trees, orange peel, rosemary, dill, basil, parsley, and of course, pine needles. There is growing evidence that pinene may contribute more than just an aroma, research is currently being carried out into its potential anti-inflammatory properties, its ability to help with anxiety, pain relief, short-term memory impairment, and as a bronchodilator (meaning that it can help open the body’s air passages).
Far more research is needed into the relationship between these potential benefits and pinene; however, it is certainly an exciting field. Furthermore, pinene-dominant cannabis strains are very rare; it normally takes backseat to other terpenes. However, there are many strains where it is the second most abundant terpene.
It looks like far more information about the benefits of pinene may emerge over the next few years; in the meantime, you can enjoy its wonderful aroma while using the strains found on this page.
