Composition of the essential oils and extracts of two populations of Cannabis sativa L. ssp. spontanea from Austria



Composition of the essential oils and extracts of two populations of Cannabis sativa L. ssp. spontanea from Austria



Journal of Essential Oil Research 15(3): 158-160



The essential oil and the solvent extract of two populations of Cannabis sativa L. ssp. spontanea growing wild in Austria were analyzed comparatively. In the essential oil, myrcene (31% and 27%, respectively), (E)-beta-ocimene (13% and 3%, respectively) and beta-caryophyllene (11% and 16%, respectively) were found, while in the solvent extract the non-hallucinogeneous cannabidiol (77% and 59%, respectively) dominated. The hallucinogeneous delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) was also found in the solvent extract at a level of less than 1%.
