Are Terpene Extracts Really Worth It?

Terpenes are known to show synergistic effects in combination with c-compounds. The effect is known as the "entourage effect," and because the ingredients magnify each other’s impact.

Terpenes offer physical effects which include:

  • Antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and antifungal properties
  • Pain relief
  • Relief from muscle spasms

Additionally, certain terpenes ease the mental impact of:

  • Stress
  • Depression
  • Insomnia
  • Anxiety

Myrcene

Myrcene has citrusy and herbal aromas. Mostly present in fruits like mango, it acts as a muscle relaxant. Myrcene also contains anti-inflammatory properties, according to the National Library of Medicine.

Linalool

Linalool is an occurring terpene in lavender. It’s a strong aroma, can be sedative, and is often used in essential oils for aromatherapy purposes. Linalool’s relaxing properties address issues like anxiety and depression. We do a deep dive into Linalool in this piece from the Abstrax blog.

Pinene

Pinene’s pine aroma comes from the pine needles and conifer trees where it is found. It offers anti-inflammatory properties and offers relief as a bronchodilator, increasing airflow to the through the body and into the lungs. Check out the full rundown on Pinene in this piece.

Limonene

Limonene is found in citrus fruits. It is abundant in nature and in assisting in the treating of depression and anxiety. As a bonus, the sweet fragrance elevates the mood. Limonene’s antioxidant properties aid in treating inflammation in the lungs. Here is a full rundown on Limonene’s benefits.

Caryophyllene

It is also termed as β-caryophyllene and gives off a woody aroma. It is also found in black pepper. Caryophyllene has anti-inflammatory properties, and is commonly found in these strains.

Borneol

Borneol has a minty aroma, and is yet another terpene that can act as an anti-inflammatory, especially for lung inflammation and neuropathic pain, as noted by the National Library of Medicine.

Terpineol
