ABSTRACT The fatty acid and natural product content of hemp seed oil was analyzed by GC-MS and LC-MS. The presence of linoleic acid (LA) and a-linolenic acid (LNA) were confirmed in their previously reported ratio of 3:1 LA:LNA. The presence of β-caryophyllene (740 mg/L), myrcene (160 mg/L), β-sitosterol (100-148 g/L) and trace amounts of methyl salicylate was observed in the oil which had not been previously reported. Trace amounts of cannabidiol (CBD) were also detected. Bioassays were… Expand
Chemical Analysis of Minor Bioactive Components and Cannabidiolic Acid in Commercial Hemp Seed Oil
TLDR
The diversity in bioactive compounds in HS oils, and their high nutritional value, suggest the need for a disciplinary booklet that well defines agronomic and post-harvest management conditions for achieving a good food objective. Expand
Herbaceous peony seed oil: A rich source of unsaturated fatty acids and γ-tocopherol
TLDR
Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) observations of the HPSO microscopic structures indicated that the quantity and size of the oil bodies increased with the development of endosperm cells in P. lactiflora. Expand
Fatty Acid and Tocopherol Profiles of Industrial Hemp Cultivars Grown in the High Latitude Prairie Region of Canada
TLDR
The high tocopherol antioxidant capacity, in addition to linolenic acids, alpha-linolenic acid and gamma-linoleic acid, ultimately adds to the nutritional profile of hemp seed oil, which has been identified as nutritionally optimal. Expand
Analytical Characterization of Hempseed (Seed of Cannabis sativa L.) Oil from Eight Regions in China
TLDR
The results indicated that hempseed oil is a potentially valuable vegetable oil and could be considered as oil extraction material and protein source with respect to kernel yield. Expand
Effects of supercritical and liquid carbon dioxide extraction on hemp ( Cannabis sativa L.) seed oil
The increase in the popularity of hemp‐based products is mainly linked to the presence of non‐psychoactive cannabinoids that provide relief from aches, pain and anxiety. In this study, hemp seed oilsExpand
Seed composition of ten industrial hemp cultivars approved for production in Canada
Abstract The objective of this study was to determine the seed chemical composition of ten industrial hemp cultivars grown in Quebec. The fatty acid and tocopherol composition, as well as theExpand
Physicochemical studies of hemp (Cannabis sativa) seed oil using enzyme‐assisted cold‐pressing
The effects of enzyme-assisted cold-pressing (EACP) on the physicochemical attributes of Cannabis sativa (hemp) seed oil were investigated using five enzyme preparations: Protex 7L, Viscozyme L,Expand
Chemical composition and nutraceutical properties of hempseed: an ancient food with actual functional value
The seeds of hemp (Cannabis sativa L.) have been an important source of nutrition for thousands of years in Chinese and European cultures but, nowadays, in spite of the multiple clinical evidence,Expand
The alimentary impact of the hemp seed
Hemp seed and hemp seed oil can supply us with many important substances. Their essential fatty acid compositions are favourable, but they may contain non-psychotropic cannabinoids. Emerging dataExpand
Cannabinoid Profiling of Hemp Seed Oil by Liquid Chromatography Coupled to High-Resolution Mass Spectrometry
TLDR
This work analyzed the chemical profile of ten commercially available organic hemp seed oils and showed highly significant differences in the chemical composition and, in particular, in the cannabinoid content of the hemp oils under investigation. Expand

Hemp seed oil: A source of valuable essential fatty acids
TLDR
Hemp seed shares with no other plant resource, both a high content of easily digestible complete protein and a rich endowment of oil providing a favorable ratio of the linoleic and linolenic essential fatty acids required for proper human nutrition. Expand
Antioxidant activity of minor amounts of γ-tocopherol in natural triacylglycerols
The effects of minor amounts of γ-tocopherol on the oxidation of natural triacylglycerols (TAG) of rapeseed (RO) and butter oils (BO) were studied. Four different TAG materials were blended fromExpand
Optimizing the effect of plant sterols on cholesterol absorption in man.
TLDR
It is indicated that the judicious addition of beta-sitosterol orbeta-sitosteryl oleate to meals containing cholesterol-rich foods will result in a significant decrease in cholesterol absorption, with a consequent decrease in plasma cholesterol. Expand
Antibiotic Activity of Various Types of Cannabis Resin
TLDR
It has been shown in the course of this work that the differences in chemical composition shown by various types of cannabis resin may be explained by the stage of development of a phytochemical process by which cannabidiolic acid is gradually converted to cannABidiol, tetrahydrocannabinols and finally to cannabinol.

Gastric cytoprotection of the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory sesquiterpene, beta-caryophyllene.
TLDR
The oral administration of beta-caryophyllene to rats significantly inhibited gastric mucosal injuries induced by necrotizing agents such as absolute ethanol and 0.6 N HCl, although it failed to prevent water immersion stress- and indomethacin-induced gastric lesions. Expand
Effects of omega-3 fatty acid and vitamin E supplementation on erythrocyte membrane fluidity, tocopherols, insulin binding, and lipid composition in adult men
TLDR
Dietary polyunsaturated fatty acids exerted substantial effects on erythrocyte membranes by affecting membrane contents of lipid molecules other than the fatty acids. Expand
Rat toxicity studies with β-sitosterol
TLDR
Serum cholesterol was the only variable which depleted markedly in both sexes in a dose-dependent manner suggesting intrinsic hypocholesterolemic effect of the sterol. Expand
Tocopherols and the etiology of colon cancer.

TLDR
This review considers and evaluates recent studies relating vitamin E and oxidative stress to colon cancer, emphasizing the distinct roles of alpha- and gamma-tocopherols and the antioxidant/pro-oxidant status of the digesta. Expand
Plant sterols as cholesterol-lowering agents: clinical trials in patients with hypercholesterolemia and studies of sterol balance.
TLDR
Sterol balance data showed that plant sterols inhibit cholesterol absorption with maximal negative cholesterol balance in adults at a dose of 3 g/day of a tall oil sterol suspension, which has potential value as an adjunct to dietary therapy in patients with mild hypercholesterolemia for whom long-term drug therapy is deemed advisable.
