all about Linalool

Lavender flowers have been used for centuries to help busy minds recharge. It gets its unique aroma from linalool which is the ideal terpene if you’re looking for rest and relaxation.

Many strains boast a complex floral aroma, so ask your budtender to connect you with strains that smell of flowers and induce a sense of calm and relaxation. You may only catch hints of lavender, but the linalool will work with other floral terps and may be just what you need to enjoy a restful night at home.
