The Medicinal Nature of Linalool
Sure, it has a bad wrap, but believe it or not, marijuana has been used medicinally for centuries. And, medical marijuana across the United states as it is gaining renewed interest due to its potential therapeutic benefits.
Cannabis is a complicated plant with many components and chemicals that are being studied more and more. One of the main components of marijuana, the terpene Linalool, has recently been studied as a potential therapeutic agent.
It’s Found in Lavender
Linalool is a naturally occurring terpene found in plants other than cannabis, including common plants such as lavender and rosewood.
Studies of Linalool have found that it contains anti-inflammatory, anti-anxiety, and anti-convulsive properties. It has also been found to be an effective pain reliever, and may be useful to treat certain neurological disorders.
Common Strains with Linalool
Linalool is contained in many strains of marijuana such as Lavender Haze, Skywalker OG, and Amnesia Haze. However, these strains contain higher levels of Linalool than other marijuana strains, and may provide more therapeutic benefits. Additionally, at Firefly, we often recommend these strains for treating conditions such as chronic pain, anxiety, and depression.
In addition to the therapeutic benefits of Linalool, it also has fewer side effects than other marijuana compounds. It is non-toxic, and does not cause any psychoactive effects. This makes Linalool a safer option for those who are looking for therapeutic benefits without some of the associated risks.
