Linalool is prevalent in today’s society and the average person who does not smoke cannabis consumes two grams of it annually. As linalool and other terpenes rise in popularity, that figure will only continue to grow.
Some would describe its aroma as citrusy, floral, sweet, bois de rose, woody, green, blueberry scent. Linalool is able to act on the opioidergic and cholinergic systems to relieve pain, a unique pathway for terpenes. Linalool also acts as an anticonvulsant, having similar effects to diazepam.
