In this work, the chemical composition and the antioxidant evaluation of the inflorescences from 12 Cannabis sativa L. monoecious cultivars (Carmagnola Lemon CL, Ferimon F, Gran Sasso Kush GSK, Antal A, Carmagnola C, Kompolti K, Futura 75 F75, Villanova V, Tiborzallasi T, Finola FL, Kc Virtus KV and Pineapple P) cultivated at the same condition, were investigated. GC-MS analysis was carried out to evaluate the volatile fraction, while HPLC-MS/MS was used for cannabinoids and polyphenolic compounds. The evaluation of antioxidant activity was carried out using ABTS*+, Trolox equivalence antioxidant capacity (TEAC), ferric reducing antioxidant property (FRAP) and 2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH*) assays in vitro. The obtained data, demonstrated that each cultivar has a characteristic chemical profile, with highest antioxidant capacity for CL, F75, GSK and F. Based on the in vitro antioxidant activity the plant extracts can be considered as promising candidates for different applications in food field.
