Terpene: Borneol

Terpene: Borneol

Terpene: Borneol is a monoterpenoid component derived from Kapur, which is an emergent canopy. It has been widely used in traditional Chinese medicine as a messenger drug, which facilitates the transport of multiple drugs to specific sites and harmonizes the effects of those drugs

Aroma: Menthol earthy and musky 

Fun fact: Chinese physicians have been aware of borneol’s potent pain-fighting and other abilities since at least the “Warring States Period,” roughly 475 – 221 BC, when they compounded borneol to concoct a treatment called “moxa.”

Sources: cannabis bay, ylang-ylang, wild thyme, parsley, and hops
