Terpenes are naturally occurring compounds that are found in many plants. Terpenes are most commonly associated with cannabis & hemp, but they’re found in everything lemons to oranges.
A point to note is that terpenes are distinctly different to CBD and other cannabinoids, and this difference is one of the reasons we add terpenes into some of our products! We add terpenes into our CBD oil to make the product you’re consuming even better!
Here’s a profile of the terpenes found in our Isolate and Full-Spectrum range of Harlequin CBD Oil.
Here's what some of the Harlequin Terpenes Are Known For:
Alpha-pinene (α-pinene) is a colorless, organic compound with an earthy, evergreen smell reminiscent of a pine forest. It’s exactly what gives the evergreen tree its smell. This compound can also be found in parsley, dill and rosemary. It is most famously known as an anti-inflammatory and helps with diseases such as arthritis and multiple sclerosis.
Myrcene, also known as alpha-myrcene or beta-myrcene, is actually the most common and potent terpene. It possesses a spicy, musky scent that produces a mildly sweet flavour in the cannabis strains it’s found in. Myrcene has powerful antibiotic, antimutagenic, analgesic, anti-inflammatory, and sedative effects.
Love that sweet, citrusy aroma? Limonene is responsible for that wondrous taste and smell. This terpene also enhances mood and helps relieve stress. In nature, you can find this terpene profile in mint, pine or citrus fruits and even essential oils. In foods, it’s a tasteful flavouring addition and in medicine, it’s in many pharmaceutical and herbal solutions. Limonene is an antifungal, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory which can help manage issues related to heartburn, weight loss, skin damage, gallstones and even cancer.
Terpinolene is a common terpene found in cannabis and is known for its woody aroma and floral notes. Also known as an alpha terpinolene, the terpinolene can function mildly or moderately as a natural sedative. This terpene occurs naturally in lilac, rosemary, sage, apple and tea trees and some essential oils. It contains antifungal, antibacterial and anticancer properties to calm and regulate the nervous system.
Linalool is commonly found in spices and flowering plants as well as some funghi. This terpene is often used as a scent or flavouring but can also be used as an antimicrobial agent, anti-inflammatory, sedative and stress reliever.
Bisabolol is a monocyclic sesquiterpene, also known as levomenol, which has been used for its skin-healing properties for centuries. As a skin and cosmetic antiseptic, this terpene soothes the skin and promotes natural healing functions, anti-inflammatory properties, anti-irritant, anti-microbial and even analgesic characteristics.
Humulene was first found in essential oils and is a species of plant from the hemp derivative and distinctly gives that “hoppy” taste some love. It’s found in some beers and cannabis strains. The aroma is earthy, woody and with a hint of spice and herbal notes. It helps combat inflammation, bacteria and manage weight loss, chronic inflammation and pain, bacterial infection, arthritis and even diseases such as malaria.
This terpene is one of the most common found in cannabis. It contains a spicy, peppery aroma commonly found in spinach, cloves, cinnamon, fig and hops. Beta-caryophyllene is a sesquiterpene with a variety of medicinal properties including anti-inflammatory features, oxidatie effects, antidepressant and anxiolytic traits.
Fenchol is a monoterpenoid and isomer of borneol frequently found in perfume manufacturing. It contains a lemon-lime taste and exhibits antibacterial properties along with antimicrobial and antioxidant characteristics. It’s most commonly known for infusing basil with its signature scent.
Borneol is a woody, camphor-like terpene used as a staple of Asian medicine for centuries. Functioning as a natural anti-inflammatory and pain reliever, this terpene is primarily used as a topical antiseptic and has been known to increase effectiveness of other medicines.
This terpene is found in cannabis plants and known for its therapeutic benefits in treating cardiovascular disease. When mixed with vitamin C, camphene can function as a powerful antioxidant that helps reduce oxidative stress. This is especially useful in treating athlete’s foot and heart disease.
