Officer Dick Downey's Pot Report
Your Illinois Cannabis Authority
NOTE: Categorized as a 'Secondary' terpene in cannabis.
Possible Medicinal Properties: Nerolidol's main medicinal benefits are anti-fungal and anti-microbial. Interestingly, it's also currently being studied as a vehicle that may help deliver certain medications transdermally.
Scent Profile: : woody, fresh bark. Leafly describes it as, "...a subdued and nuanced floral aroma with notes of fruity citrus, apples, and rose" which is a significant contrast to woody. A U.K. terpenes supplier describes it as, "Floral, green and citrus like, with woody waxy nuance."
Also known as 'trans-Nerolidol', this compound is considered a minor terpene in the cannabis plant though its medical applications are beginning to widen with more research.
Flavor Profile: fir, pine, woody with nuances of melon
