I’m CannaGirl918 & I’m here to help you gain control over your canna experience by understanding the red hot science behind your favorite strains!
Did you know judging cannabis as by indica or sativa is the same as judging a woman by her body type. Indica & sativa don't tell you ANYTHING about the plant except the shape of the leaves. Really. Crazy how misinformation becomes the norm at some point. 🤥
Meanwhile, like Wonder Woman, I believe it can be destroyed by the truth is should be destroyed by the truth! Click here for my blog that covers the deets on terpenes & why they matter way more than the leaf's shape!
The fact is terpenes are the very thing that creates the unique canna experience you like from chilling out & lowering anxiety to getting creative & hanging with friends. To help you get to know the 5 major terpenes, I took inspiration from my favorite women to create The CannaGirls 🤍 If you haven't met these powerhouses, pop by & say hiiiggghhh to Myrcee, Teri, Cary. Today, you'll be meeting Pinee.
Pinee is the focused one. You’ve seen her around town with friends & out around town. Checking in fun day trips & making memories. She’s got a lot going on, just like you. Running multiple brands, taking care of her family, giving back to the community, spending time with her friends & making time for her furbabies. Time management is her middle name & her focus is legendary.
Since Pinee tends to be more quiet & focused, she can be overlooked, people underestimating her quiet determination. With a cool & level head, she’s the one you can count on to finish the task, no matter what happens along the way. Pinee is goal-focused & takes pride in helping those she cares about to succeed at whatever they put their mind to.
A total worker bee, Pinee unwinds with her canna baes, each one bringing a little something to the table. Like all friendships, the girls are better together, strengthening each other & cheering each other on. The CannaGirls are all about growing together.
While there isn’t a lot that really gets to Pinee, she is serious about focus & mental space. When we take time to focus on our goals & create a plan to get there, we are pretty much unstoppable. Depression, anxiety, ADHD, shit, life at large, will throw obstacles in your way. If you stay focused & driven, success is inevitable & you may even find it looks different than you expected it to….for the better of course.
To be honest, Pinee is the one you least expected to be a revolutionary but as it turns out, she’s the one changing the game when it comes to stereotypes & outdated roles. No one is going to tell her what she can & can’t do, she’ll see to that.
Terpenes are the fragrant oil but a total bonus for us: they offer humans a variety of potential benefits. Pinene can also be found in conifer trees, orange peels, turpentine, pine needles, rosemary, dill, basil, and parsley. Pinene smells a lot like pine, duh.
Pinene is an anti-inflammatory & a bronchodilator, making it ideal for coping with anxiety. It’s known to increase focus & even reduce memory loss often associated with THC. Just as different cannabinoids have different effects, so do terpenes. These unique attributes of cannabinoids & terpenes help to create the overall composition of a strain, adding dimensions to each one’s “personality” in what's known as the entourage effect. The entourage effect is the combination of terpenes that create the vibe you feel.
While Pinene is rarely the primary terpene in a strain it is often the secondary & contributes to the scent of the strain as well as the entourage effect High Pinene strains to consider are:
- Big Smooth
- Blue Dream
- Cotton Candy Kush
- God’s Gift
- Grape Ape
- Kosher Tangie
