ACS Omega. 2021 Nov 16;6(47):32186-32197. doi: 10.1021/acsomega.1c04992. eCollection 2021 Nov 30.
Coincident with the cannabis legalization and the increased interest in the medicinal use of the plant, the cannabis marketplace and farming have seen tremendous growth. It is reported that there are more than 2000 cannabis varieties available to customers. However, the data that is available to the growers and breeders regarding the cannabinoid contents of various varieties remains low. Here, a high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) method was developed and validated for the simultaneous separation and determination of 11 cannabinoids. A total of 104 hemp bud materials belonging to 20 varieties were collected from farms in the state of Maryland and analyzed with the HPLC method. The contents of the 11 cannabinoids in various varieties were compared and discussed, highlighting the varieties that showed a high yield of cannabinoids and good consistency that are more appropriate for cannabinoid production.
