Pulegone

Terpene

Pulegone[Pulegone]

Definition:

Pulegone is a terpene known for its sweet and minty aroma, which can be extracted from a grown Cannabis indica or sativa plant. Because it has low concentrations, growers identify pulegone as a secondary terpene.

Not many research studies are available in discussing pulegone’s therapeutic advantages. However, peppermint oil, which contains pulegone, has been related to improved cognitive performance, including alertness.
