The cannabis terpene


A Little About the Terpene Trans-Nerolidol


Found naturally in many herbs and in spices, Trans-Nerolidol is used in cooking quite a bit but it is also known for its medicinal uses. Science is busy examining Trans-Nerolidol now, for all the potential that it has to offer us in the way of therapeutic remedies and medicinal purposes.

This is a secondary terpene found in lemongrass, tea tree, and jasmine. It smells woody with a hint of jasmine and apples. It is being researched currently for use as an antiparasitic and antifungal that may be used to help treat parasites, particularly in parts of the world where these things are still highly problematic, such as parts of Africa and the Rain Forest areas of the world.


Which Cannabis Strains Contain Trans-Nerolidol?

Strains with Trans-Nerolidol terpene will have a woody to citrusy aroma. The terpene levels tend to vary with different harvests and strains but some strains do tend to always have higher levels of this terpene. These include Green Mountain, Sour Kush, and Tangilope.

What Are the Health Benefits of Trans-Nerolidol?


To date, studies seem to suggest that Trans-Nerolidol may hold the following benefits:

  • AntiparasiticIt is currently under testing as a topical that can penetrate the skin to treat a genus of trypanosomes that are responsible for the disease leishmaniasis.
  • Inhibitory Effect on Babesia Parasites – Similar to the above, to treat the specific parasite responsible for Babesia.
  • Antifungal effects – Treating skin fungi with topical treatments using Trans-Nerolidol.
  • Staphylococcal treatment – May be effective in helping doctors prevent and treat Staph infections that have grown resistant to other commonly used antibiotics in medicine now. In research so far, it has been shown to work hand in hand with antibiotics to literally destroy staph infections. This is something we’ve never seen before and could lead to far better treatments for those most at risk of these infections.

As with most terpenes, it is believed that Trans-Nerolidol can be used as an antifungal, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and immune booster. As a result, this terpene may help conditions such as heart ailments, cancer prevention and treatment, and pain in general. However, far more extensive research needs to be conducted on terpenes, and on this terpene specifically.

Thanks to independent labs, universities and privately funded organizations, data from all around the world is being released each and every day with more information about some component or another of cannabis.

The legalization of medical marijuana and hemp has liberated researchers around the world to take part in studies and to share those results with the world. Before the late 1990s it was very difficult to perform research on cannabis due to regulations. Thankfully, this has eased and the results and findings over the past 30 years have been phenomenal.
