This blog is part of a continuing series on the various terpenes that make for deep and unique cannabis experiences.

Time for a fun relaxation exercise. Breathe in. Breathe out. One more time, deep breath. Feel relaxed? Good, now you're ready to read about today's terpene: a-terpineol (also sometimes just called terpineol). Naturally found inlilacs, pine trees, lime blossoms, and eucalyptus sap, this terpene is generally known for its properties as a natural relaxant.

What does Terpineol do?

This terpene not only encourages relaxation, but it also boasts potentialanti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antitumor, and antimicrobialproperties as well. (For some light reading, Weedmaps publishedthis bloglinking back to all of the scientific studies supporting these properties). Basically, anti-most-things-that-are-bad-for-you. And, it potentially acts as a sedative too. Thisarticlementions that, in lab studies, a-terpineol led to a decrease in motility in mice subjects.

Commercial Uses

Commerciallysynthesized from a-pineneorfractionally distilled from pine oil, a-terpineol exhibits a lilac/pine scent and has a taste reminiscent ofsweet lime. It's frequently usedin edible products like chewing gum, baked goods, dairy products, condiments, beverages, and candies. Additionally, a-terpineol, which isgenerally gentle on the skin and non-irritating, is a popular additive for soaps, lotions, and other bath products.

If you are looking for a-terpineol to make an appearance in your life in a less-synthetic way, you can find it in over 150 plants, including lapsang souchong tea and, of course, cannabis.

Cannabis and Terpineol

Terpineol is generally found in cannabis plantsthat also contain pinene, which makes sense considering how it can be artificially created.

Strains that generally contain higher levels of a-terpineol include Kush, Cookies, White Widow, and Jack Herer strains. At TGS, you can pick upBubba KushandKandy Kush, both of which contain this relaxing, sedative terpene for your enjoyment.

The better and more gradual the curing process, the more sophisticated a grower's yields become, including preserved aromas, flavors, and potency.
