What is Alpha Pinene?
Depending on where the double bond is on the molecule, Pinene can consist of two isomers: Alpha and Beta. The two isomers do have slightly different effects, but the aromas and flavors are similar.
Alpha Pinene, depending on its charge, is usually seen in pine trees, the negative charge typically is found in European pine, and the positive is found in North American pine.
Pinene is an alkene and highly reactive to molecular rearrangement, whether alpha or beta.
Specifically, Alpha Pinene emits an earthy, pine, and herbal odor. It’s flavor tends to be a sharp pine or a general woody taste.
You will find Alpha Pinene in some varieties of citrus sources, herbs like sage and rosemary, and in conifer trees.
Alpha Pinene is commonly found in the following strains:
- Og Kush
- Blue Dream
- Jack Herer
When it comes to Beta Pinene, you’ll notice woody or piney aromas and a less-than-alpha sharp flavoring. Although these two isomers are extremely similar, they offer a unique experience.
You will find Beta Pinene in a wide variety of conifer, which is pine. It can also be naturally sourced from Heterotheca, a non coniferous camphorweed and Artemisia tridentata, a big sagebrush.
Beta Pinene is frequently found in the following strains:
- Bubba Kush
Does Pinene Effect Allergies?
To date, our Pinene isolates, alpha or beta, have not been reported as affecting our customers due to allergic reactions or the like. Irritants like pollen are removed from True Terpenes isolates through our steamed distillation process, which means the cause for allergic reaction is separated from the remaining liquid.
Nonetheless, we highly advise you start with smaller, less frequent doses to see how your body may or may not react.
Why Use Alpha Pinene?
Both Pinene isomers offer beneficial effects, recreationally and medicinally.
Beyond medicinal study and use, True Terpenes Alpha Pinene offers a variety of complimentary effects like energy, focus, and an uplifting calmness.
On the other hand, Beta Pinene has shown positive effects in anti-bacterial and anti-virus studies. You can also enjoy the terpene for its focused energy state, whether you add it to your morning tea or meal of choice.
How to use Alpha Pinene?
As we’ve mentioned before, it’s always encouraged to start with small doses over less frequent dose periods. This allows for you to judge how the terpene affects your body. True Terpenes potent terpene products offer a unique experience, and we want you to enjoy them as much as possible.
Nonetheless, you can enjoy Pinene alone, or you can add it to your favorite beverage or food. Once you discover which does works best for you, enjoy the terpene however you like!
