In addition to smoking a cannabis strain for the psychoactive level it offers, we all love to enjoy a strain for its pleasant aroma and taste.
Depending on the Mary Jane plant you select, its smell and taste can vary, and this is precisely due to the terpene profiles of each one.
If you are a stoner who prefers floral, woody and fruity fragrances, then choosing marijuana flowers containing nerolidol will help you a lot. Read on and learn about this terpene.
What is nerolidol?
Nerolidol is a terpene that can be found in different plants such as ginger, jasmine, tea tree, lavender and lemongrass, of course in some marijuana strains as well.
This terpene is responsible for giving your flowers woody, floral aromas tinged with citrus, apple and rose notes. It is often used as a fragrance or food additive.
Studies focusing on nerolidol have shown sedative, antifungal, antibacterial, anxiolytic, antioxidant, and may be an insect repellent.
As we mentioned, this terpene is also present in certain varieties of cannabis. For example in strains such as Island Sweet Skunk, Skywalker OG and Jack Herer, the latter being very popular and appreciated among the cannabis community.
