Fun Fact!

It has observed that Pinene Alpha exhibits behaviors that classify it as an Acetylcholinesterase Inhibitor. Acetylcholinesterase Inhibitors work by increasing the levels and duration of action of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine – which aids in memory function. These Inhibitors are often used to treat neurodegenerative conditions, such as; Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and Dementia. The increased alertness and enhanced memory found in these patients, make it a popular natural additive in the Cannabis Industry. When used in various marijuana strains, Pinene Alpha is seen to work similarly in the brain to counteract the memory deficits that often come as a side-effect of THC consumption, making it more appropriate to be used medicinally.
