Pulegone is also categorized as the one compound containing all of the pharmacological characteristics of a plant. Pulegone is also an effective insecticide. Pulegone has a scent which lingers even after combustion or light heating has ceased. Vaping hash oils made from marijuana strains higher in pulegone has been described to create a more pleasurable and relaxing experience. Research has concluded that Pulegone can act as an acetylcholinesterase inhibitor, making hash or vape oils containing pulegone more desirable because they can stimulate the production of and reuptake of acetylcholine in the brain, thus alleviating and even solving the problem of short-term memory loss created by hash oils containing relatively lower amounts of pulegone.
