Cannabis Compound Identification
Common NameCannabigerol monomethylether
DescriptionCannabigerol monomethylether is a methoxylated derivative of cannabigerol, which is a phytocannabinoid. Cannabigerol is a resorcinol, due to the meta arrangement of its two hydroxyl groups on the benzene ring. It is biosynthetically derived from olivetolic acid on which the hydrogen at position 3 is substituted by a geranyl group. It is a molecule of mixed biosynthetic origin, in which its aromatic moiety (derived from olivetolic acid) occurs through the polyketide biosynthetic pathway while the prenylated sidechain derives from the MEP pathway of the terpenoids (DOI: 10.1016/B978-0-12-800756-3.00002-8). Thus, cannabigerol monomethylether can be considered a polyketide, a monoterpenoid and a resorcinol. Cannabigerol is a minor constituent of cannabis (approximately 1 % of dry weight). During growth, most of the cannabigerol present in the plant’s tissues is converted into other cannabinoids, primarily tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) or cannabidiol (CBD) (PMID: 26836472 ). Cannabigerol monomethylether was first reported to be isolated from the japanese “Minamioshihara No.1” domestic variety in 1968 (PMID: 5706840 ).
