Pulegone is a minor component of cannabis, and has a pleasant peppermint aroma. The herb rosemary has high concentrations of the terpene pulegone. Pulegone is used as a strong insecticide, usually in the form of rosemary essential oil. Pulegone has been tied with the breakdown of acetylcholine in the brain allowing nerve cells to more effectively communicate. This may possibly alleviate short term memory loss, commonly associated with high levels of THC use.
