“Finola” Cannabis Cultivation For Cannabinoids Production In Thessaloniki-Greece
Cannabis has garnered a great deal of new attention in the past couple of years due to the increasing hopes of its legalization for recreational use and indications for medicinal benefit. The increasing consumption and cultivation has led to a multiplication of scientific studies. Focus was placed in this study foremost on yielding morphological data (length of the plant, inflorescence fresh and dry weight) for appropriate mechanical harvest and biochemical cannabinoids analysis of the industrial cannabis “Finola” that is newly grown in Greece. The average, standard error and the coefficient of variation were estimated in case of necessity and the correlation among all results was done using Microsoft Excel 2010 and Minitab 19 Software. Furthermore, three chemical analyses for TLC and NMR techniques were applied for analysis. The Cannabinoid quality or chemotype analysis was also calculated. After extraction and isolation of cannabinoids using ethanol and other separation compounds, cannabinoid acids, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), cannabidiol (CBD) and some other cannabinoids were extracted, isolated, identified and isolated with no delays or limitations. Finola cannabis provided a scientific background that may be considered by the Lebanese growers to accelerate and improve the relative mentality and to provide a collection of relevant scientific information, upon which the field of cannabis analysis can continue to grow.
