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.
