The (-)-trans-Δ9-tetrahydrocannabiphorol (Δ9-THCP, 1) content of the inflorescence from six Cannabis sativa chemotypes, including 14 plants of distinct genotypes, and two extracts was determined quantitatively via high-performance liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (HPLC-MS/MS). This represents the first comprehensive quantitative screening for 1 from various C. sativa chemotypes. Compound 1 was detected in all 13 inflorescence samples originating from « (-)-trans-Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol (Δ9-THC, 2) dominant » C. sativa chemotypes, but was not detected in a « cannabidiol (CBD, 3) dominant » chemotype. The inflorescence content of 1 ranged approximately from 0.0023% to 0.0136% (w/w). Comprehensive inflorescence sampling was performed for each specimen investigated. A trend between inflorescence cannabinoid potency and the location of which the inflorescence was sampled on the C. sativa plant was observed for the three cannabinoids tested (1-3). The preliminary results obtained indicate Δ9-THCP (1) may have a higher degree of prevalence in C. sativa inflorescence than previously estimated.
