Abstract

Hemp seed oil is well known for its nutraceutical, cosmetic and pharmaceutical properties due to a perfectly balanced content of omega 3 and omega 6 polyunsaturated fatty acids. Its importance for human health is reflected by the success on the market of organic goods in recent years. However, it is of utmost importance to consider that its healthy properties are strictly related to its chemical composition, which varies depending not only on the manufacturing method, but also on the hemp variety employed. In the present work, we analyzed the chemical profile of ten commercially available organic hemp seed oils. Their cannabinoid profile was evaluated by a liquid chromatography method coupled to high-resolution mass spectrometry. Besides tetrahydrocannabinol and cannabidiol, other 30 cannabinoids were identified for the first time in hemp seed oil. The results obtained were processed according to an untargeted metabolomics approach. The multivariate statistical analysis showed highly significant differences in the chemical composition and, in particular, in the cannabinoid content of the hemp oils under investigation.

Keywords: cannabinoids; cannabinoids mass spectra; hemp; hemp seed oil; high-resolution mass spectrometry.

Principal Component Analysis (PCA) in positive (A) and negative (B) ionization mode of LC-HRMS data of hemp seed oils. Samples are named as “oil_number” (e.g., oil_1); the colored ellipsoids represent the 95% confidence region. Partial Least Squares Discriminant Analysis (PLS-DA) in positive (C) and negative (D) ionization mode of the LC-HRMS data of hemp seed oils. PLS-DA is performed by rotating the PCA components in order to obtain the maximum separation among the groups. Validation parameters: R2 = 0.915; Q2 = 0.755.

Color-coding consists of shades of red and blue, where higher intensity of red stands for very high concentration and higher intensity of blue stands for very low concentration. The samples are shown in colors at the top of the heatmap, while cannabinoids are reported on each row.
