Terpenes have been getting way more attention since I first started researching them, let alone wtf they are lol. These oily secretions produced by cannabis, herbs, fruits, and flowers not only give plants their unique colors and smells, but also health benefits. So tuhday, we are combating this non-spring Chicago weather with a very floral terp found in chamomile. Mmm…chamomile, I get a little relaxed just saying it.
Bisabolol is known by a couple of other names, alpha-bisabolol and levomenol, and has a floral, slightly sweet scent that is used in perfumes, soaps, and cosmetics. Medical patients enjoy the anti-inflammatory and anti-stress properties, therefore making cannabis strains high in this terp industry favorites. Some of my favs include Pink Kush and Sour Diesel, while popular choices include Girl Scout Cookies, ACDC, and Headband.
Big Bisa’s health benefits include:
Not to mention, it keeps you chill!
Bisabolol is a secondary terpene, meaning it may not play as large a role in the plant’s properties as primary terps such as alpha-pinene or limonene. Nevertheless, its properties are a huge contribution to the entourage effect (when terpenes and cannabinoids work together their individual benefits are increased. Like Captain Planet.) Research has been finding its anti-cancer (pancreatic and leukemia) properties a great factor in cannabis for medicinal purposes.
I see you Big Bisa!
