Terpene Spotlight: Pinene

What is Pinene?

Alpha and Beta Pinene are two terpenes that are commonly found together in coniferous plants and cannabis. Not only are they usually found together, they work together synergistically to create some potentially powerful therapeutic effects. Terpenes are one of hundreds of compounds in the cannabis plant, but each terpene adds its own magic to the cannabis plant, and how certain strains make you feel. 

Pinene is commonly found in plants that have a very specific and strong smell, like pine trees, rosemary, basil and of course cannabis. This strong smell is a defense mechanism created by pinene to defend the plants in the wild against predators. It may smell delicious to us, but not to them. This smell is also the key to one of pinene's unique qualities as a bronchodilator, opening up your airways. 

What are the Benefits of Pinene?

Research has shown that Pinene has the following potential benefits:

  • Anti-inflammatory 
  • Bronchodilator- Asthma, COPD
  • Pain-relief 
  • Anti-anxiety 
  • Short term memory impairment 
  • Anti-bacterial 

What CKSoul Have Pinene?

Pinene is added to our Support CBDa, Restore CBD, Serenity THC, and Serenity THCa. This proprietary terpene blend that is customized to each of these tinctures, gives it a unique and maximum therapeutic quality. When tincture products are made, they lose some of the terpenes in the process. We reintroduce terpenes like pinene to ensure that each tincture has the most powerful qualities of the whole cannabis plant. It grows in nature perfectly equipped to be therapeutic and we want to keep it that way.
