The Benefits of the Terpene Linalool

The terpene Linalool is a primary scent in many cleaning and hygene products. Linalool is naturally found in cannabis, lavender, coriander, and other fragrant herbs and citrus. The scent gives a sweet floral and spicy scent.

Studies have shown that inhaling the linalool fragrance can reduce stress, pain, convulsions and treat skin burns. The effects are from the ability of Linalool to moderate glutamate and the GABA neurotransmitters in the body. This results in the bodies ability to bring itself back to a pre-stress stability.(Source)

Linalool breaks down with oxidation. When the terpene breaks down the oxidation can sometimes cause an allergic skin reaction to about 5% of people. It is also a chemical intermediate that can create Vitamin E. Cannabis strains that are high in Linalool are Lavender, L.A. Confidential and Grand Daddy Purple.
