The Benefits of the Terpene 1,8 Cineole in Cannabis

Cineole also known as eucalyptol is an essential oil found in rosemary, eucalyptus and cannabis. It is a monoterpene naturally found that is safe in low concentrations. Cineole contributes to an “Entourage Effect” to support other medicinal values of marijuana.

Cineole helps the blood-brain barrier to allow other cannabinoids to penetrate more readily into the bloodstream.(Source) This allows it to aid in topical applications for pain and inflammation.(Source) It has also shown to help with circulation.(Source) Cineole affects the GABA receptors of the brain creating a balance in mood.(Source)

Cineole is known to have a spicy, camphor scent that is refreshing like rosemary. It is generally found more in sativa strains being known to give energy and an uplifting effect. Strains like Super Silver Haze, ChemDawg, and Bubba Kush are known to be high in eucalyptol.
