Alpha Terpineol (Lindenol) Terpenes

Our isolated Cannabis Terpenes are completely raw and undiluted, they can be used individually in your product to harness each terpene’s unique effect or combined in different terpenes.

In nature terpenes do not occur in isolation. Individual plants produce a variety of types of these molecules that come together to form what is called a terpene profile. Research has revealed that terpenes possess significant wellness properties.

Terpenes/terpenoids have a wide range of biological and pharmacological activities, for instance, antifungal, antiviral, anticancer, anti-inflammatory, antihyperglycemic, antiparasitic, antioxidant, and antimicrobial.

Terpineol has a pleasant odor similar to lilac and is a common ingredient in perfumes, cosmetics, and flavors. α-Terpineol is one of the two most abundant aroma constituents of lapsang souchong tea; the α-terpineol originates in the pine smoke used to dry the tea.[3] (+)-α-terpineol is a chemical constituent of skullcap.

Terpineol is present in more than 150 plants and natural oils like lime blossoms, eucalyptus sap, sage, pine trees, and lilacs. Not to be confused with terpinolene, it’s commonly used in the industry for perfumes, cosmetics, lotions, soaps, and candles due to its lovely, pleasant scent. Its most common form is alpha-terpineol (α-terpineol).

Aroma: Floral, lilac-like, apple blossom scent, with citrus nuances and piney hints. Some users describe that terpineol tastes like anise and mint.

Effects: Terpineol exhibits a wide range of therapeutic qualities. Among the most significant properties of this primary terpene are its anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects that ease painful acute or chronic diseases. Moreover, its antioxidant and antitumor properties make terpineol a helpful agent that can help fight certain types of cancer, including breast, lung, prostate, ovarian cancer, and chronic myeloid leukaemia. Besides these qualities, it possesses antimicrobial activity, induces vasodilation, lowers arterial pressure, and acts as a sedative and relaxing agent. Nevertheless, terpineol is irritating to the eyes and mucous membranes. It is recommended to avoid contact with the skin and eyes and ingestion because it may produce hemorrhagic gastritis.

Boiling Point: 219°C.

CAS Number: 98-55-5

Cannabis Strains: Multiple strains like Purple Gas Hemp, Girl Scout Cookies, Jack Herer, Peach Mint Kush, and the Haze Berry Strain often test high in terpineol.

Terpineol Benefits and Uses

Plants with terpineol have been used as natural remedies for centuries. The lime blossom flower, which contains high levels of terpineol, was traditionally used to treat colds and called the “nectar of kings” for its scent and therapeutic benefits. While sparse research, and few recent studies, examine the therapeutic potential of terpineol, the existing evidence points to many promising uses.

Two separate studies in 2007 and 2010, respectively, showed that alpha-terpineol features anti-inflammatory effects, the latter of which recommended further examination of alpha-terpineol as a potential component of new anti-inflammatorymedications.

Terpineol also presents promising antioxidative properties: researchers in 2011 compared the antioxidant effects of alpha-terpineol and other terpenes and found that terpineol had the most substantial antioxidant effect, comparable to commercially sold antioxidants.

Additional studies have pointed to terpineol’s potential in battling cancer cells. In the above analysis and a 2010 study, the evidence showed promising results in alpha-terpineol’s ability to inhibit the growth of cancerous tumor cells in vitro, suggesting its usefulness in treating certain types of cancer.

Finally, a 2012 study examining terpineol’s antimicrobial properties found that low terpene levels, alongside linalool, were an effective antibacterial agent in toothpaste and other mouth cleaning solutions.
