Cannabis Linalool Terpenes: What Does It Do?
Cannabis Terpenes are being researched everyday in Australia and the Linalool stands out as one of the most important components in the marijuana plant.
Linalool is one of the non-cyclic monoterpenoids (belongs to the class C10 skeleton) with a few traces of lavender and floral. Linalool provides high serenity, calmness, and relaxation.
The aroma of linalool is extremely popular with a potent lavender scent and a hint of spiciness.
Linalool appears in most cannabis strains, but very few marijuana plants contain high levels.
Some of the important uses of Linalool are:
- Since ancient times, it is used as one of the sleeping agents. When Linalool is triggered by pure THC it helps in reducing anxiety and also helps in curing psychosis.
- It improvises the immune system
- Its effects show a reduction in lung inflammation
- Reinstate psychological and cerebral functions thus expediting the cure of Alzheimer
Various studies have been performed on Linalool with various conclusions:
The Ma, J., Xu et al Study: The hazardous effects of smoking are - it increases lung inflammation and block carcinogenesis prompted by anthracene - one of the dangerous tar elements that are precipitated by burning tobacco. The studies have proved the maximum reduction in all these hazardous effects due to inhaling cannabis/tobacco smoke.
The Angélica Maria Sabogal-Guáquet et al study: Linalool improvises the immunity system without any mediating agent and activates the immunity cells via specific receptors.
In medical terms, Histopathology means the microscopic study of the tissues to understand the manifestation of a disease. And, Linalool is capable of reversing the histopathological attributes of Alzheimer’s disease by reinstating most of the psychological and cerebral functions through anti-inflammatory curing.
The Environmental Protection Agencies have officially permitted to use Linalool as one of the main ingredients in insecticide, as a flavouring agent, and in the perfume industry as well.
Linalool is one of the listed ingredients of a wide range of bath and body products.
It is named as Linalyl alcohol, p-linalool, linalyl oxide, beta Linalool, and alloocimenol.
When Linalool is heated and converted into vapours, they act as a highly effective insecticide and excellent repellent against fleas, cockroaches, and fruit flies.
The latest technology has made it possible to isolate Linalool from more than hundreds of plants.
Linalool can also be extracted from the following plant families:
- The Lamiaceae Plant & Herb Family: This family includes scented herbs and mints as their common sources, which are cinnamon, laurels, and rosewood.
- The Rutaceae Family: This family includes citrus plants as one of the feasible sources.
- Cannabis Indica and Sativa
- Various types of plant species and birch trees present in the boreal and tropical climates also contain Linalool.
Linalool is considered to be the originator element in the formation of Vitamin-E. In reality, not the plant but some fungi also produce Linalool!
