Pine Scented Terpene is Most Abundant in the Plant World

In aromatherapy, different scents and essential oils are used to create desired effects in both the mind and body. For centuries, plants high in pinene with a strong conifer scent have been popular for enhanced feelings of clarity and awareness. With an aroma reminiscent of a walk through a pine forest, hints of pinene can be found in more plants than any other terpene.

Because HempMeds® products are carefully formulated using all-natural herbal ingredients, users of our hemp oil products regularly ingest a range of botanical compounds, including terpenes. Terpenes are a class of phytochemicals found in a wide variety of plants. Terpenes like pinene are often responsible for a plant’s aroma and flavor and may have a range of uses since they can interact with many types of cell receptors and enzymes.

There are two varieties of pinene: alpha and beta. Alpha-pinene possesses an aroma of pine needles or rosemary and is the most common of the two varieties of cannabis. The beta type smells more like dill, parsley, basil, or hops (a relative of cannabis).

Myrcene is the most common terpene in cannabis, but pinene’s reach goes much further than that. In fact, pinene is the most abundant terpene in the entire plant kingdom.

Pinene’s potential has been tapped for a range of therapeutic uses in both traditional and modern medicine. Part of its effectiveness comes from its ability to pass the blood-brain barrier. Pinene also plays an important role in the functioning of the endocannabinoid system. Alpha-pinene forms the biosynthetic base for CB2 ligands, which mimic the endocannabinoid 2-AG.

When you take a full-spectrum hemp oil supplement like RSHO™ pure hemp oils from the oral applicator everyday, you receive much more than simply CBD. Hemp oil also contains trace cannabinoids, essential vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, flavonoids, and, of course, terpenes. In fact, hemp contains hundreds of different terpenes in varying combinations. You can learn more about the advantages of full-spectrum hemp oil HERE.

Pinene is just one of many terpenes present in the cannabis plant. Visit our education page to discover more about terpenes, hemp oil, the HempMeds® line of CBD products.
