Although less research has been invested towards the study of terpenes in cannabis as opposed to the major cannabinoids found in the plant, terpenes are also responsible for many of the physiological and psychoactive effects that cannabis is widely known for. Below, we have listed some of the major terpene isolates that are found in cannabis along with a handful of their associated “Entourage Effects.”
? Limonene? (Lim o kneen): In Sativa cannabis strains, limonene is a major terpene responsible for both flavor and effects. Found in other sources, such as citrus fruits, this terpene aids in the absorption of other terpenes through the mucous membranes and epidermis (Bhatia & Singh, 1999). In concentrated form, limonene is used to help with both anxiety and depression (Goes, et al., 2013).
? Alpha-Pinene? (Alpha Pine knee nnn): Largely responsible for the odor associated with cannabis strains, a-pinene is also found naturally in pine trees, turpentine and other coniferous plants. The most abundant of all terpene varieties, a-pinene acts as an anti-inflammatory agent and bronchodilator (Esiyok et a., 2004).
? Linalool? (Lin A lool): One of the more interesting terpenes found in cannabis, linalool is noted for its floral scent that is similar to spring flowers, but with spicy notes on the front end. Linalool has become an extremely popular terpene due to its sedative properties and its ability to act as an effective anxiety and stress reliever. This terpene has also been shown to have both analgesic (pain relief) and antiepileptic properties (Esiyok et a., 2004).
? Myrcene? (Meer Seen): The most prevalent of all terpenes, myrcene is found in a wide variety of cannabis strains. In fact, the concentration of myrcene in a cannabis plant determines whether that strain is considered an Indica or Sativa, clearly greatly affecting the effects of each unique strain. Cannabis strains that contain a myrcene concentration of 0.5 percent or less produce an energizing effect, while strains containing over 0.5 percent produce a more sedative effect. In addition to being a major terpene in cannabis plants, myrcene is found in hops, lemongrass, citrus fruits and thyme, making this terpene one of the most popular in uses related to aromatherapy.
? Terpinolene? (Ter Pin o lean): Studies have shown that, when inhaled, terpinolene produces a sedative effect on the user (Ito & Ito, 2013). In addition to this psychoactive result, this terpene has been shown to exhibit potential anticancer and antioxidant effects (Lv, et al., 2015) leading some researchersto believe that this terpene could become a valuable medicinal tool in the near future.
? Geraniol? (Ger ayn e ol): A terpene that is also found in geraniums, geraniol gives off a rosy scent that has made it an extremely popular extract to use in perfumes. In addition to smelling nice, geraniol has been shown to repel mosquitos (Regnault-Roger, et al., 2012) and presents a potentially protective effect against neuropathy, a type of degenerative disease that affects the nerves outside of the brain and spinal cord (Prasad, 2014).
There is so much to learn about terpenes, but we hope this can help you to understand the science behind the magic of terpenes and your favorite cannabis strains!
