Abstract

Human liver microsomal oxidation products of Δ8-tetrahydrocannabi-nol (THC) were isolated and identified by thin-layer chromatography, gas chromatography and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry. As the results, five monohydroxylated metabolites including 11-hydroxy-Δ8-THC, and 8β,9α-dihydroxyhexahydrocannabinol were identified as trimethyl-silyl derivatives. Isolation of the dihydroxylated metabolite suggests that epoxy metabolite(s) may be formed from A8-THC in humans.
