Pinene is a terpene that can be found in pine needles, turpentine, orange peels, dill, basil, rosemary and of course… cannabis!
The smell/flavor it produces is… drumroll… pine! The flavor is pleasantly earthy. Whenever I smoke a pine flavored strain, I’ll close my eyes and feel like I am a woodland fairy in the middle of an enchanted forest.
Have you ever experienced “couch-lock” from using cannabis? That was most likely contributed by the effects of myrcene, our next terpene in the series!
