Terpineol can refer to any combination of four monoterpenes, the most common of which is alpha-terpineol. Alpha-terpineol is found in a vast array of plants, including lilacs, pine trees, eucalyptus, and cannabis. It is commonly used to create many fragrances is in products like soap, lotion and perfume. However, because it is commonly found with high levels of pinene, it can be difficult to detect due to pinene’s much more pungent aroma. Alpha-terpineol has a very sedating and relaxing effect, leading some to believe that it is responsible for the “couch-lock” that results from certain strains. It has many medicinal benefits for humans, including being an antibiotic, antioxidant, antimalarial, anti-tumor, and many more.
Extract Consultants first offered individual isolated terpenes to the market for both educational and creative purposes, as people want to replace the entourage effect that is lost through the extraction process.
