Another type of terpene is pinene. Like other terpenes in cannabis, pinene isn’t limited to just strains. It’s one of the most common terpenes in the entire plant kingdom. It can be found in a wide range of foods, home goods, essential oils and of course pine trees.
Pinene has two versions: alpha and beta. The alpha version is straight up pine needles. The beta version is more akin to rosemary, parsley and basil. One of the reasons pinene is such a strong ally is its ability to cross the blood/brain barrier.
Once in the brain, pinene can alter neurotransmitters that can actually improve memory. You read that right, for those who struggle with remembering things, there’s hope for you.
Some strain names of pinene to look for would be Blue Dream, Romulan, and Strawberry Cough. Flowsent’s weed subscription allows you to try different strains to give you a chance to really try a variety of cannabis. If you sign up for our weed subscription, your delivery will be boosted to priority!
