Project: Exploratory investigation on polyphenols in cannabinoid-free cannabis-species aiming at the identification of oestrogenic and other medicinal properties.
- project duration
- 01-JAN-99 – 31-DEC-01
- Cannabinoid-free cannabis-species of different origin will be grown and the genotypes will be determined using molecular identification techniques. Investigation of the constituents will be focussed on polyphenols which will be extracted and identified. Fractionation of the polyphenols will allow to evaluate the oestrogenic properties via very sensitive and selective in vitro and in vivo bio-assays, in addition to screening of other medicinal properties.
