Terpene Profile: Pulegone

What is Pulegone?

Cannabis contains hundreds of different plant compounds, including 200 different types of terpenes. Terpenes are natural chemical compounds that give certain plants like cannabis, herbs, and citrus their varied flavors, scents, colors, and range of effects. Even within the cannabis species, different compositions of terpenes will give each plant a unique flavor. 

Pulegone is one of the therapeutic terpenes found in the cannabis plant and other herbs like peppermint, rosemary, and catnip. 

Benefits of Pulegone

Pulegone is believed to have positive therapeutic effects on the mind and body and is mostly known for its relaxing and sedative effects. Both scientific research and anecdotal evidence suggest pulegone may have the following benefits:

  • Relieves pain.

    Pulegone has been shown to act as a natural analgesic, similar to menthol. It reduces pain and inflammation, especially for conditions like rheumatoid arthritis.

  • Promotes relaxation.

    Pulegone may be effective in promoting a general sense of relaxation, while reducing anxiety and depression.

What is Pulegone Used For?

Pulegone and other terpenes are most commonly used to enhance aroma, flavor, and therapeutic effects.
