Foggy forest
Have you ever noticed how you feel alert and and breathe easier when you walk through the forest? That’s because of all the pinene in the air! As the name implies, alpha pinene (a-pinene) and beta pinene (b-pinene) give off a pine aroma, and—contrary to what one might expect from an active constituent in marijuana—can actually improve memory retention.

Aroma: pine, fresh mountain air, slightly woody

Effects: improves mental focus, boosts energy, expectorant, bronchodilator, topical antiseptic, improves memory retention

Also Found In: pine needles, rosemary, basil, parsley, dill

High Pinene Cannabis Strains: Vanilla Kush, Cookie Cross, 9lb Hammer, Lavender, and Green Life #1.
