Better Know a Terpene: Pinene

The Alberta Rockies are well known for their glorious craggy peaks, and evergreen covered valleys. The lovely scent that we associate with days in the outdoors is the terpene pinene. Pinene is also found in many of our favourite cannabis strains (OG Kush, Blue Dream).

Pinene has known anti-inflammatory properties, and works as a bronchiodialator, aiding breathing. It has also been shown to help mitigate the effects of short term memory loss commonly associated with THC. It supports the modulation of our brain’s GABA receptors, and just helps to make us feel good.

Take advantage of the therapeutic properties of pinene with a pinene-heavy cannabis strain like OG Kush, or just take a nice long walk in the forest.
