What is Linalool?

Linalool is a terpene commonly found in various plants, including lavender, citrus fruits, and cannabis. It is responsible for the sweet, floral aroma often associated with these plants, making it a popular choice in perfumes, cosmetics, and aromatherapy. In your green, linalool contributes to the diverse array of flavors, scents, and effects present in different strains.

As with other terpenes, research suggests that linalool exhibits anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and anxiolytic (anti-anxiety) effects, making it a promising candidate for medicinal use. Additionally, linalool has been shown to have sedative properties, which may contribute to its calming and relaxing effects. It is typically associated with the effects you expect from 'Indica' type strains. 

Benefits of Linalool

Linalool can enhance or modulate the overall effects experienced by users. Two notable effects of the linalool's synergy is increased relaxation and sedation. Anecdotally, when Linalool and Myrcene are combined the relaxation and sedation appears to be amplified. This makes linalool-rich strains particularly appealing for individuals seeking relief from pain, anxiety, or insomnia.

Moreover, linalool may also mitigate some of the adverse effects associated with grass, such as paranoia or anxiety. By modulating the activity of neurotransmitters in the brain, linalool could help counteract anxiety and promote a more balanced and enjoyable experience.
