We are excited to announce the return of Terpene of the Month! Nerolidol is a secondary terpene with rich, aromatic tendencies, which makes it perfect for February. Most people give flowers, but this Valentine’s Day, look for strains with Nerolidol.

Secondary terpenes act in conjunction with more popular and abundant terpenes. In nature, Nerolidol can be found in jasmine, tea tree, and lemongrass. These plants’ fresh, floral scents can be attributed to the presence of Nerolidol. 

In cannabis, Nerolidol can be found in strains such as Jack Herer, Skywalker OG, and Island Sweet Skunk. Most studies on Nerolidol have been conducted on non-cannabis plants, so we’ll be presenting information on those studies. 

In plants, Nerolidol may have different properties. In studies, Nerolidol has been found to help the body absorb other terpenes to increase their therapeutic benefits. Additionally, it has been found that Nerolidol may also have sedative properties. 

In addition to these discoveries, Nerolidol may have antimicrobial, anti-oxidant, anti-parasitic, and pain-relieving properties. 

If you’re looking to enhance the body’s absorption of other terpenes, look for Nerolidol. While not the most abundant, it can definitely help elevate the effects of other terpenes. Looking to introduce Nerolidol but don’t know if smoking is for you? Try a topical made with Nerolidol.
