Beta-Pinene Terpenes

Beta Pinene

Pinene is a terpene composed of two isomers, Alpha and Beta Pinene, which are often present in cannabis plants. Pinene has been used for centuries in traditional medicinal practices.

Existing Research on Benefits

Beta Pinene, and its counterpart Alpha Pinene, can have a range of beneficial impacts when utilised in different combinations. For example, individual Beta Pinene has anti-coagulant, antitumor, antimicrobial, antimalarial and anti-inflammatory properties. In addition to this, Beta Pinene has analgesic qualities when combined with Limonene. Studies have shown that high concentrations of Beta Pinene may even exhibit anticonvulsant activity by reducing seizure time.


Beta Pinene is a chemical compound that is present in large quantities in pine trees and their resin, as well as sage, rosemary, and turpentine.

Aroma & Flavor

Alpha Pinene and Beta Pinene both have a piney, woodsy aroma and flavor.


Pinene has been associated with mood enhancement and potential relief of Alzheimer’s-related memory and cognitive deficits, in combination with THC, CBD, Limonene, and Linalool. Additionally, it is thought to be effective against MRSA (methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus) along with Limonene and Linalool.
