Turkey: Evaluation of cannabinoid content of four different strains of cannabis grown in four different regions

The objective of this study was to investigate the cannabinoid content of extracts, which was conducted by Soxhlet extraction. In the extraction system hexane, ethyl acetate and ethanol were used sequentially to extract cannabis plant. When all species were evaluated in terms of CBD, all results in Meram region were the highest. As it can be understood, if an efficient extract in terms of CBD is desired, sowing can be done in Meram.

Narlı strain provided the highest (65.88%) yield in terms of CBD in accordance with its cultivation purpose. When evaluated THC-active ingredient, it was seen that each strain gave high yields in different regions. Elnur strain yielded the highest yields in Altınekin (66.21%), Papatya in Beyşehir (52.05%), Narlı (14.49%) and Gökçeağaç in Çumra (56.13%). It is the first study to show the different climatic conditions effect on the yield of CBD and THC in different strains.
