What is Borneol?

Borneol is a terpene valued for its woody, camphor-like aroma. It is derived from a member of the teak family of trees (dryobalanops aromatica). A staple of Asian traditional medicine, borneol is an effective anti-inflammatory and pain reliever, primarily as a topical. Borneol has also proven effective as an anticoagulant for stroke patients, and may increase the effectiveness of other drugs. Of the terpenes found in cannabis, borneol is among the most common. In isolation, borneol has been found to simultaneously reduce stress and fight fatigue, leaving people in a relaxed yet not sedated state.
