Bisabolol terpene

Table of Contents

Cannabis is well-known for a lot of reasons, but one of the most prominent is its distinct smell. And, we have terpenes to thank for those pungent aromas. 

One terpene in particular, called bisabolol, is still becoming mainstream in the industry, and more strains are boasting levels of this floral terpene every day. 

So, what does bisabolol do? What are its effects within cannabis, and what strains have the highest level of this terp? Let’s dive right in.

Real Quick: What’s a Terpene?

Before we talk about the bisabolol terpene and its effects, it’s important to understand what a terpene is — and the role it plays within cannabis. 

In general, terpenes are a diverse class of organic compounds, produced by a variety of plants, including weed, of course. 

They often have a very strong odor and may protect the plants that produce them by deterring herbivores and by attracting predators and parasites of herbivores. 

Terpenes are a major component of resin and turpentine that are produced from resin. In fact, the name “terpene” is derived from the word “turpentine”.

In terms of cannabis, terpenes are the compounds responsible for the distinct aromas and flavors of different strains. You know, the tastes and smells that make each puff unique. 

These terpenes are found in the resin glands of the cannabis plant. Beyond just influencing the sensory experience, terpenes can also interact synergistically with cannabinoids, creating widespread effects and results. 

This is why many people find they have favorite terpenes, as they help influence the effects you experience from your weed. 

The cannabis plant has numerous terpenes, with some of the most popular being myrcene, limonene, pinene, and caryophyllene.

Where Does the Bisabolol Terpene Come From?

Now, let’s focus on bisabolol. First, where does this terpene come from? Or, better yet, what can you find it in? 

Primarily, you’re going to find high levels of the bisabolol terpene within chamomile, candeia trees, and cannabis

The bisabolol terpene is responsible for the floral, semi-sweet notes that you pick up within chamomile, and it’s also often associated with the herb’s anti-inflammatory and calming properties. 

We’ll talk more about the effects later, but the soothing properties of this terpene make it a very common ingredient in skincare products.

The terpene’s gentle characteristics make it ideal for sensitive skin — as well as those seeking plant-based healing.

What is Alpha-Bisabolol?

If you’re looking for terpenes and come across alpha-bisabolol, don’t get flustered! This is just another name for the bisabolol terpene. 

Both bisabolol and alpha-bisabolol are the same compound.

Bisabolol Terpene Effects

As we’ve mentioned, terpenes have a direct correlation to the cannabis plant’s effects and how you feel when you’re high.

That being said, what does bisabolol do? What does this terpene feel like when consumed?

Of course, every person’s cannabis experience is going to be slightly different.

However, many people find that bisabolol is an incredibly therapeutic terpene, great for those seeking more supportive effects than anything. 

The bisabolol terpene is known for having soothing, calming effects.

Thus, the strains it’s in tend to produce more relaxing effects, ideal for anyone with high anxiety or stress levels. 

Chamomile is commonly associated with anti-inflammatory properties, and the same goes for cannabis strains with high levels of bisabolol!

People who enjoy bisabolol in their strains will likely find it helpful for aches and pains, and promoting overall comfort. 

Finally, bisabolol may also help those with skin complications. As we discussed, the terpene is often found within skincare products, and this includes hemp skincare products! 

Those who enjoy bisabolol topicals may find it helpful for dry, red, cracked, and painful skin.

Cannabis Strains High in Bisabolol

Okay, we’ve talked a lot about what kind of effects that bisabolol can produce. Now, how can you enjoy those effects for yourself?

The best way is to find cannabis strains that are high in bisabolol.

It’s worth mentioning, though, that this terpene isn’t present in as high amounts as some other terpenes, and you will likely find it within more CBD-dominant strains. 

Still, here are the best choices for strains high in the bisabolol terpene.

The ACDC cannabis strain is one of the most popular CBD-dominant strains in the industry today.

In fact, this strain produces little to no psychoactive effects because its THC levels are so low. 

So, if you’re interested in a strain that’s simply going to help you feel your best without getting stoned, the ACDC strain is a great choice. 

Plus, you’re going to soak up all of the best effects of the bisabolol terpene! 


The Headband cannabis strain is a popular strain for various reasons; primarily, it’s known for the unique effects it has cerebrally.

(You may literally feel as if there’s a headband on your dome after smoking, hence the name.) 

This is a hybrid strain that’s popular for its strong psychoactive effects and powerful pain relief, ideal for those with chronic discomfort seeking some relief

While it isn’t the most prominent terpene in the strain, bisabolol does make a decent appearance in the Headband strain. 

So, if you want to get high and reap the rewards of bisabolol, Headband may be a fantastic choice.


Along with ACDC, Harle-Tsu is another incredibly famous CBD-dominant cannabis strain.

Like ACDC, Harle-Tsu also isn’t going to get you high; instead, it’s best for helping you unwind, decompress, and maybe even get some sleep. 

Harle-Tsu is known for providing intense pain relief and relaxation.

It can also help with focus for those who just want to sit down and cross things off their to-do list.
