Eucalyptol benefits and any side effects are what we talk about today. This guide has a reading level of ‘Koala’. That’s if they haven’t passed out on a 23-hour nap marathon from eating too much.
Eucalyptol terpene is one of the many terpenes found in the cannabis plant. So before you hit the ‘buy terpenes‘ button why not see what other options are out there first.
Terpenoids are organic chemical compounds found in all plants. It’s not just exclusive to Mary Jane. And it is these terpenes which give the plant its aroma and unique benefits as alternative medicine.
Eucalyptol is also known as cineole and is found within the eucalyptus. It can be found in tea trees, bay leaves, mugwort and cannabis.
What are the Eucalyptol benefits to know?
This terpene has shown promise to help with lots of different conditions and problems. These include:
- Pain relief
- Slowing growth of bacteria and fungus
- Reduces inflammation
- Inhibits the growth of cancer cells
- Helping to reduce and loosen mucus
There is ongoing research into terpenes. However, you can still find some interesting studies which show promise for the plant matter. For example, in a study looking into colon cancer it was found that treatment with Eucalyptol was an effective strategy to treat colorectal cancer.
Where can you find Eucalyptol?
You can find this terpene in everyday products such as mouthwash, cough medicine, flavourings and creams. This can also be present in full spectrum CBD oil and e-liquids.
Tell me more about Full-Spectrum and Eucalyptol
Full-spectrum hemp and CBD products contain terpenes. It is still legal as it contains less than 0.2% THC and will not have any psychoactive effects. The process of extracting full-spectrum CBD is not so intense and therefore maintains a wider range of the organic compounds within it.
Can Isolate offer the Eucalyptol Benefits?
So whereas the broad and fuller spectrum sourced CBD and hemp products contain organic plant extracts, isolate, is simply isolate. It’s what it is. It is pure form CBD, where all other properties are washed clear. So no, you won’t find Eucalyptol or other Terpenes such as Beta-Caryophyllene within it.
While CBD isolate can have some great benefits and relief from conditions, having it with the terpenes could have added effects. The workaround is to buy the freebase terpenes and add it to it.
Do you buy full spectrum oil or liquid?
You can buy either. It is down to preference really. You place tincture drops on the inside of your cheek whereas you inhale e-liquid using a vape device. Vaping is the fastest way to get a dose of CBD into your system as it is the most bioavailable.
