Estimation of Biologically Active Cannabinoids in Cannabis indica by Gas Chromatography-mass Spectrometry (GC-MS)

2012 DOI: 10.5829/idosi.wasj.2012.19.07.1922

World Applied Sciences Journal 19 (7): 918-923, 2012 ISSN 1818-4952 © IDOSI Publications, 2012 DOI: 10.5829/idosi.wasj.2012.19.07.1922

Cannabis indica was collected from five different localities of Pakistan and analyzed for medicinally active compounds by GC-MS. The biologically active chemical compounds amongst the naturally occurring cannabinoids are delta 9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) which were present in all samples in high percentage. The highest percentage of THC present was 23.84% and that of CBD was 54.48%. Other canabinoids quantified were: delta 9-tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV), cannabivarin (CBV), cannabichromene (CBC), cannabipinol (CBP), cannabigerl (CBG), hexahydrocannabinol (HHCBN), cannabinol (CBN). The main objective of the study was to investigate biologically active compounds of Cannabis sp. from various localities. Results from the study proved that Cannabis is not meant only for its recreational purposes but the presence of biologically active medicinal compounds in high concentrations make it a valuable source to be used in herbal preparation for different ailments.
