Isolation and Pharmacological Evaluation of Minor Cannabinoids from High-Potency Cannabis sativa, Mohamed M. Radwan et al., 2015

Isolation and Pharmacological Evaluation of Minor Cannabinoids from High-Potency Cannabis sativa Mohamed M. Radwan, Mahmoud A. ElSohly, Abir T. El-Alfy, Safwat A. Ahmed, Desmond Slade, Afeef S. Husni, Susan P. Manly, Lisa Wilson, Suzanne Seale, Stephen J. Cutler, and Samir A. Ross Journal of Natural Products, 2015 June 26, 78, (6), 1271–1276. doi : 10.1021/acs.jnatprod.5b00065   Abstract Seven new naturally occurring hydroxylated cannabinoids (1–7), along with the known cannabiripsol (8), have been isolated from the aerial parts of high-potency Cannabis sativa. The structures of the new compounds were determined by 1D and 2D NMR spectroscopic analysis, GC-MS, and HRESIMS as 8α hydroxy-Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol (1), 8β-hydroxy-Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol (2), 10α-hydroxy-Δ8 [...]

6 variétés de cannabis pleines de THCV, Aurélien BERNARD, Newsweed.fr, 30 janvier 2020

6 variétés de cannabis pleines de THCV Aurélien BERNARD Newsweed.fr, 30 janvier 2020 https://www.newsweed.fr/5-varietes-cannabis-thcv/ À mesure que les connaissances scientifiques sur le cannabis se développent, la composition chimique du cannabis et la manière dont il interagit avec le corps se dévoilent. Et si le CBD ou le THC sont largement étudiés, certains cannabinoïdes plus rares comme le THCV (tetrahydocannabivarine) intéressent de plus en plus les scientifiques. Au cours de la dernière décennie, des études sur des humains et des animaux ont identifié le potentiel du THCV pour réduire l’appétit chez les personnes qui luttent pour perdre du poids, réguler la glycémie chez les personnes atteintes [...]

These plants that were central to concepts of health, spirituality, and well-being were, however, demonized and rejected [...]

Changing landscape of cannabis : novel products, formulations, and methods of administration, Tory R Spindle et al., 2019

Changing landscape of cannabis : novel products, formulations, and methods of administration Tory R Spindle, Marcel O Bonn-Miller and Ryan Vandrey Current Opinion in Psychology, 2019, 30, 98–102 Doi : 10.1016/j.copsyc.2019.04.002   Abstract Laws regulating cannabis have changed radically in the U.S. and abroad. Historically, users smoked dried cannabis flowers that contained D9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the primary psychoactive component of cannabis, as the principal product constituent. Coincident with cannabis legalization and increased interest in medicinal use of the plant, there is now an expansive retail cannabis marketplace with novel cannabis products, formulations, and methods of administration. In this review, we describe emergent cannabis product chemotypes (e.g. THC-dominant, [...]

Cannabis Systematics at the Levels of Family, Genus, and Species, John M. McPartland, 2018

Cannabis Systematics at the Levels of Family, Genus, and Species John M. McPartland Cannabis and Cannabinoid Research, 2018, Volume 3.1, 203- Doi : 10.1089/can.2018.0039   Abstract New concepts are reviewed in Cannabis systematics, including phylogenetics and nomenclature. The family Cannabaceae now includes Cannabis, Humulus, and eight genera formerly in the Celtidaceae. Grouping Cannabis, Humulus, and Celtis actually goes back 250 years. Print fossil of the extinct genus Dorofeevia (=Humularia) reveals that Cannabis lost a sibling perhaps 20 million years ago (mya). Cannabis print fossils are rare (n = 3 worldwide), making it difficult to determine when and where she evolved. A molecular clock analysis with chloroplast [...]

Textes - Recueil du Bon Plant François Olivier Gagnon-Hébert 2019   Titre : Pas de panique ! Le cannabis était là avant nous… et il le sera sûrement encore après nous.   Le cannabis, ce n’est pas le nom d’un poison, ni d’une drogue pharmaceutique. Ce n’est pas non plus un mot inventé par les politiciens pour faire peur ou pour influencer les résultats d’un concours de popularité à l’échelle du pays. Le cannabis peut être bien des choses pour bien des personnes, mais avant même d’être le démon incarné qui rend les mœurs légères, et avant même d’être le prochain remède holistique à tous les maux [...]

Intercultural, intermolecular : An ethnobotanical examination of the potential therapeutic value of LSD for the treatment of depression, Karsten FATUR, 2019

Intercultural, intermolecular : An ethnobotanical examination of the potential therapeutic value of LSD for the treatment of depression Karsten FATUR Journal of Psychedelic Studies, 2019, 3, (1), 32–34. DOI: 10.1556/2054.2019.002   Lysergic acid diethylamide holds great therapeutic potential in the treatment of depression, although currently illegal in many parts of the world and seen as a recreational drug. An intercultural ethnobotanical examination of plant substances with similar chemical profiles and effects displays the true potential value of this substance and justifies an increased focus on clinical trials and studies involving it. Keywords : psychedelic, LSD, ayahuasca, depression, serotonin   Despite its current status as an illegal substance, lysergic [...]
