Phytochemical investigation of the lipids extracted from seeds of Cannabis sativa by GC-MS showed 43 cannabinoids, 16 of which are new. The extract is dominated by Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (A) and its neutral derivative trans-Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol-C5 (THC) Cis and trans-Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol-C7 isomers with an ethyl-pentyl branched chain together with minor amounts of trans-Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol with a methyl-pentyl C6 branched side chain were identified as new natural compounds…

Terpenes/Terpenoids in Cannabis: Are They Important?
The main terpenes/terpenoids and their abundance in the samples were evaluated and will be helpful in the next evaluation of these compound in mixture with cannabinoids and their importance in medical treatment.
Recent advances in Cannabis sativa genomics research
This review provides a comprehensive summary of key cannabis genomics resources and their applications, and discusses prospective applications of existing and emerging genomics technologies for accelerating the genetic improvement of cannabis.


Identification of cannabichromene metabolites by mass spectrometry: identification of eight new dihydroxy metabolites in the rabbit.
This paper describes the identification of these metabolites by GC/MS techniques using both deuterium-exchange reactions and hydrogenation of the metabolites to tetrahydro derivatives to suppress chromenyl ion formation and to enhance the relative abundance of diagnostic fragment ions.
NMR assignments of the major cannabinoids and cannabiflavonoids isolated from flowers of Cannabis sativa.
It was observed that carboxylic acid substitution reduces intermolecular hydrogen bonding resulting in a sharpening of the H-5' signal in cannabinolic acid in deuterated chloroform.
Constituents of cannabis sativa L. XII—mass spectral fragmentation patterns for some. Cannabinoid acid as their TMS derivatives
Fragmentation schemes for a number of TMS derivatized cannabinoid acids are described. Specific fragmentation pathways and rearrangement mechanisms were determined based on the ion composition of

The following mechanism was distinguished: loss of a methyl radical, ring closure and rotation, McLafferty rearrangement, retro Diels-Alder, internal protonation, isomerization and internal bond formation, and one-step fragmentation to m/e 231.
Flavonoid glycosides and cannabinoids from the pollen of Cannabis sativa L.
Chemical investigation of the pollen grain collected from male plants of Cannabis sativa L. resulted in the isolation for the first time of two flavonol glycosides from the methanol extract, and the
