What is Phytol?

Phytol is grassy and balsamic in odor. It is naturally produced in green tea. Cannabis leaves with phytol may induce a relaxing, sedative effect. The antioxidant properties of phytol are well known, and it is actively researched for numerous other therapeutic effects. A 2013 study shows phytol to possess strong pain-relieving properties, and recent studies have shown it to be an effective treatment of both liver and breast cancer. Through the neurotransmitter GABA, phytol has also been shown to function as an anticonvulsant and antianxiety treatment. Like many terpenes, phytol also possesses strong anti-inflammatory properties.
