What is Eucalyptol?

Eucalyptol is the primary terpene of the eucalyptus tree. It is also known as cineole. It has a distinct minty, cool tone in its smell. Most cannabis strains do not contain large amounts of eucalyptol. It usually makes up around 0.06% of a strains complete terpene profile.

This terpene is used in cosmetics, as well as, in medicine. When it comes to medical value, eucalyptol relieves pain and slows the growth of bacteria and fungus. Although it is still in the early stages in research, this terpene has shown some promising effects on Alzheimer’s as well.
