Nerolidol is a terpene found in certain cannabis strains. Terpenes are aromatic compounds that give cannabis its unique scent. They are also found in various plants and contribute to their flavor, aroma, and color.
Nerolidol is unique due to its distinctive aroma, often described as woodsy and fresh, like fir and pine trees. It’s also found in jasmine, tea tree, and lemongrass. But its role isn’t just about scent. It also influences the overall effects of the cannabis strain.

This terpene is not only about aroma and flavor. Studies have shown that Nerolidol possesses potential health benefits. Some research suggests it may have anti-inflammatory, antifungal, and anti-parasitic properties.
