The terpene eucalyptol gives the eucalyptus plant its characteristic cool, refreshing, menthol-like aroma. In smaller concentrations, it is found in sweet basil, bay leaves, cardamom, rosemary, sage, and wormwood. Eucalyptol’s low toxicity (in small doses), strong entourage effect and well-documented health benefits make its range of potential therapeutic applications far-reaching. Research has substantiated eucalyptol as a potent antibacterial, analgesic, antifungal, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anti-proliferative (inhibits cancer cell growth), bronchodilator, and neuroprotective. As a minor terpene found in cannabis, eucalyptol helps boost the therapeutic effects of CBD and THC. Cannabis strains containing eucalyptol elevate mood, produce a calming effect, ease pain, and increase memory and mental clarity.
