Cannabis is one of the oldest medicinal plants known. At present, there is significant interest in cannabis and its medicinal uses. Cannabis contains more than 400 different ingredients, including 66 cannabinoids. The poor availability of the various cannabinoids as pure compounds is an obstacle for the development of cannabinoid based drugs and for pharmacological and toxicological studies. Supercritical CO2 is an excellent medium for the isolation and separation of cannabinoids from cannabis… Expand
