Terpene Spotlight: Linalool

WHAT IS LINALOOL?

Linalool is an abundant terpene found in the cannabis plant as well as plants like lavender and birchbark. Not only is Linalool responsible for the irresistible smell of these plants, it also packs some unique therapeutic benefits. The smell of lavender evokes a sense of calm; you find it in sleep sprays, candles, and aromatherapy aimed toward rest and relaxation. Not only do the smell of terpenes like Linalool affect your emotions, but they alter brain function and as a result have powerful properties. 


HOW DOES LINALOOL WORK WITH YOUR ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM?

The feeling you experience from cannabis is a combination of how terpenes and cannabinoids interact with the endocannabinoid receptors in your body. Linalool works with the dopamine receptors, immune response receptors, pain receptors, and pathways for inflammation. The way that Linalool interacts with these systems in turn results in many therapeutic effects.
