Geraniol (aka Lemonol) is a sweet, floral terpene with a rosy scent and citrus notes. Strains best-known for their geraniol content embrace Death Star OG and Tangerine Haze. Isolated geraniol is often naturally derived from geranium, lemon, and citronella.
Geraniol has been studied for its antimicrobial, antibacterial, and analgesic properties. More studies are needed to show that geraniol can affect cancer cells in humans, but its antioxidant properties show promise in cancer research. Geraniol also acts as a neuroprotectant that could be used in the treatment of diabetes.
