Bisabolol is a non-psychoactive terpene found in cannabis, hemp, and chamomile plants. Also known as Levomenol, it’s moderately common though usually not plentiful in many indica varieties of cannabis.
Strain types containing Bisabolol
The terpene generates a sweet, floral scent that is most associated with relaxing teas. In cannabis strains, it is easily recognizable in varietals related to Headband and Hawaiian, but also found in lesser quantities in strains like ACDC, Grape Pie, LA Cheese, and Pink Kush.
Found in Skincare & Cosmetic Products
While Bisabolol is somewhat common in cannabis strains, it is nearly ubiquitous in skincare and cosmetic products. Its pleasing floral scent and association with chamomile tea make it particularly attractive for luxury beauty brands. It is commonly extracted from German chamomile as a clear and viscous oil that is then mixed with other ingredients. It’s also added to many sunscreens and used as part of a daily facial skincare routine by millions of people worldwide.
Two forms of Bisabolol
Officially, there are two forms of Bisabolol—an alpha and a beta. However, cannabis strains only include the far more common alpha-Bisabolol. Scientists classify the terpene as a sesquiterpene, which means it contains three isoprene units and is chemically like Humulene, Nerolidol, and beta-Caryophyllene.
Because of its use in skincare and cosmetics, Bisabolol has been moderately studied by scientists. While it is often associated with feelings of relaxation and skin rejuvenation, researchers have not yet concluded exactly what kind of benefits it delivers to users on its own.
