A recent cannabis use survey revealed that 60% of cannabis users rely on smelling the flower to select their cannabis. Olfactory indicators in plants include volatile compounds, principally represented by the terpenoid fraction. Currently, medicinal- and adult-use cannabis is marketed in the United States with relatively little differentiation between products other than by a common name, association with a species type, and Δ-9 tetrahydrocannabinol/cannabidiol potency. Because of this practice… 

Novel Solventless Extraction Technique to Preserve Cannabinoid and Terpenoid Profiles of Fresh Cannabis Inflorescence

The purpose of this study was to employ organically grown cannabis and to isolate pure trichomes from freshly picked flowers via exposure to vapor from solid CO2, commonly known as “dry ice”, followed by their isolation via sifting through a 150 µ screens while maintaining the cold chain.

Quantitative Determination of Cannabis Terpenes Using Gas Chromatography-Flame Ionization Detector.

Background: Cannabis has a long history of being credited with centuries of healing powers for millennia. The cannabis plant is a rich source of cannabinoids and terpenes. Each cannabis chemovar

Secondary Terpenes in Cannabis sativa L.: Synthesis and Synergy

This review highlights the diversity and bioactivities of terpenes in cannabis, especially minor or secondary ter penes that are less concentrated in cannabis on a by-mass basis and explores the question of the entourage effect.

Analysis of Terpenes in Cannabis sativa L. Using GC/MS: Method Development, Validation, and Application.

The proposed GC-MS method is highly selective, reliable, and accurate and has been applied to the simultaneous determination of these major terpenes in the C. sativa biomass produced by the facility at the University of Mississippi as well as in confiscated marijuana samples.

Quality Traits of “Cannabidiol Oils”: Cannabinoids Content, Terpene Fingerprint and Oxidation Stability of European Commercially Available Preparations

An in-depth chemical profiling of cannabinoids, terpenes and oxidation products was conducted by means of GC-MS and HPLC-Q-Exactive-Orbitrap-MS in order to improve knowledge regarding the characteristics of CBD oils.

An Optimized Terpene Profile for a New Medical Cannabis Oil

The purpose of this analytical study was to develop an advanced formulation of medical Cannabis oil (MCO) comparing the chemical profile of different extracts obtained with two existing methods

Extraction techniques for bioactive compounds of cannabis.

The main focus of the review is the discussion of work conducted in the field of extraction of valuable bioactive compounds from cannabis, and a summary of the current status and outlook on the topics that future research should address.

Gene Networks Underlying Cannabinoid and Terpenoid Accumulation in Cannabis1[OPEN]

This study profiled nine commercial cannabis strains with purportedly different attributes, such as taste, color, smell, and genetic origin, and functionally evaluated genes that encode enzymes with activities not previously described in cannabis.



Cannabis Oil: chemical evaluation of an upcoming cannabis-based medicine

Concentrated cannabis extracts, also known as Cannabis oils because of their sticky and viscous appearance, are becoming increasingly popular among self-medicating patients as a claimed cure for

Development and Validation of a Reliable and Robust Method for the Analysis of Cannabinoids and Terpenes in Cannabis.

A single- laboratory validation study for the determination of cannabinoids and terpenes in a variety of commonly occurring cultivars using high- throughput homogenization to prepare sample extract, resulting in acceptable RSDs.

A chemotaxonomic analysis of cannabinoid variation in Cannabis (Cannabaceae).

A two-species concept of Cannabis is supported by the determined frequencies of B(D) and B(T) in sample populations of 157 Cannabis accessions determined from CBD and THC banding patterns, visualized by starch gel electrophoresis.

The therapeutic potential of cannabis and cannabinoids.

There is now clear evidence that cannabinoids are useful for the treatment of various medical conditions.

Innovative development and validation of an HPLC/DAD method for the qualitative and quantitative determination of major cannabinoids in cannabis plant material.

Cannabis and Cannabis Extracts: Greater Than the Sum of Their Parts?

Good evidence shows that secondary compounds in cannabis may enhance the beneficial effects of THC, and other cannabinoid and non-cannabinoid compounds in herbal cannabis or its extracts may reduce THC-induced anxiety, cholinergic deficits, and immunosuppression.
