Sabinene May Help in Treating Or in Acting As:
aids in liver function and detoxifying agent
NOTES: Categorized as a 'Secondary' terpene in cannabis. In very high concentrations, Sabinene can be toxic and even deadly. However, Sabinene in very low levels, such as in cannabis, can not dangerous and can be beneficial.
Possible Medicinal Properties: I have come across many anecdotal instances where Sabinene has been used medically, but no I've not found any scientific data or studies about its therapeutic value.
Found In (partial list): nutmeg, marjoram, cloves, cardamom, black pepper, a major component of savin oil, cannabis
Even at low concentrations, Sabinene can change the aromatic qualities of different cannabis strains due to its powerful spicy punch. Sabinene, along with Beta-Caryophyllene, gives black pepper its peppery flavor.
Flavor Profile: spicy with woody and camphoreous notes
