It’s now November, so you know what that means. It’s time for another Terpene of the Month! For November, we will be focusing on the terpene linalool. A lot is known about this certain terpene, and we hope to share that information with you!
Linalool is found in nature most abundantly in lavender, which has been used for over 2500 years for its health benefits. Linalool is one of the most commonly found terpenes in nature and is present in over 200 different plants. On average, humans consume over 2 grams of linalool through various plant-based foods every year.
There are many potential benefits related to the use of linalool including its reported anti-microbial, sedative and anti-epiplectic properties.
A 2016 study also showed that linalool worked to slow down the behavioral and cognitive impairments associated with Alzheimer’s disease. This treatment is awaiting human testing.
While linalool is present in a number of plants, cannabis has lower amounts of it. The strain Do-Si-Dos has the highest amount of linalool, and it’s paired with limonene and caryophyllene, making its reported effects range from euphoria to relaxation.
Linalool is a terpene that has been used for its therapeutic and anti-inflammatory benefits. More research is needed for prescribed treatments but it is found in a number of plants including cannabis.
