Canadian cannabis strains for people who love pinene

Published on August 27, 2019 · Last updated November 7, 2022
pinene terpene

Pinene is a pretty special terpene.

Most notably, it has been found to be an effective bronchodilator and has promising anti-cancer properties. Also important to note is that it comes in two forms: Alpha-pinene and Beta-pinene.

Alpha-pinene, also seen as ‘ɑ-pinene’, smells of fresh pine needles with a rosemary finish and shows promise against inflammatory diseases (Alzheimer’s, depression, arthritis).

Beta-pinene, also seen as ‘β-pinene’, emits an earthier pine scent and research displays findings of it as an antiviral and antimicrobial against pathogenic organisms.Join the Leafly Canada Community

Check out these terpinolene-rich strains at a cannabis retailer near you:

Blue Dream by Aurora

Hailing from two famous parents, Blueberry and a sativa Haze strain, Blue Dream is a sativa dominant hybrid that is often described as very potent. This isn’t meant to scare you, but should act as a warning to approach with mindful caution.

Even on the low end, the THC payoff for Blue Dream is 17%, which is among a higher percentile for most strains. With a terpene profile of ɑ-pinene, β-pinene, and limonene, this strain is said to increase mental focus and energize the mind.

It’s not surprising that users report a strong cerebral rush, euphoria, and motivation at the onset. With the scent of sweet sugary blueberries, this strain is a favourite for recreational and medicinal consumers—especially because as the experience builds, sensations of total relaxation leave you feeling hazy and a little introspective. Dive into Blue Dream during an open afternoon.

The high is described to be highly euphoric and uplifting with soothing body sensations. Novice users should consume with caution as this is quite a potent strain with THC levels ranging from 16-20%. But once you’re accustomed, No.502 White Light is an excellent partner to a night in soaking in the tub or sprawled out on the sofa.

Penelope by Tweed

Penelope is a balanced strain from Tweed, with a one-to-one THC:CBD ratio. Penelope smells of earthy pine and cloves with peppery pine notes on the exhale. Users have reported a fun, euphoric high with Penelope that helps melt away stress while relaxing the body.

This mild strain is also described as a mood enhancer while providing focus. Consuming too much has been said to put users in a spacey sleep haze, so if you’re dappling with Penelope for the first time make it an evening session just in case you start to drift off.
