The terpene Guaiol Natural is classified as a sesquiterpenoid alcohol, rather than an oil. Until recently it had been referred to only as a part of the terpene Guaiacum, but after the discovery that it holds it’s own medicinal value it has joined the list as an individual terpene. Due to the relationship, it has with Guaiacum it is difficult to trace a specific background for Guaiol alone. The alcohol can be found in cypress pine and guaiacum flowers and has an aroma that is often compared to that of the terpene Pinene.

Guaiol works as an antibacterial and anti-fungal, and can also be used as a natural insecticide. Most commonly it can be found in medical cannabis formulations due to the freshness it can add to the aroma, as well as the fact that it works as a powerful cough suppressant. When added to inhaled formulations it can work to counter-act the coughing fits that can be associated with cannabis use. It can also be used to treat a variety of ailments caused by inflammation from various types of arthritis to constipation.
