all about Eucalyptol

Summary: Close your eyes and imagine yourself surrounded by nature and towering eucalyptus trees. That distinctive calming smell is thanks to eucalyptol. 

With a familiar cooling aroma and calming effect, strains with this terpene may be just what you need after a long day at work. While eucalyptol is not as common a terpene as, say, myrcene or humulene, stoners will still find strains with hints of refreshing menthol have a decent amount of this terpene.
