GIFs – Top Ten Flavonoids in Cannabis (Molecules)

This post features GIFs of the Top 10 Flavonoids in Cannabis, showing the entire rotating molecule of each.  This ranking of the top 10 flavonoids in cannabis is based on laboratory tests of various strains, and is arranged by concentration from primary to secondary flavonoid constituents. These include flavonoids found in many plants around the world, as well as three flavonoids – the cannflavins – that to date have only been found in cannabis.

These top ten cannabis flavonoid rotating 3D molecules make it easy to determine several characteristics of each compound, including total number of carbon atoms, hydrogen atoms, and oxygen atoms, as well as bonding, double-bonds, rings and characteristics thereof, and other features that can help identify a molecule and determine its possible functions. The following are the top ten flavonoids in cannabis:

  1. Cannflavin A
  2. Cannflavin B
  3. Orientin
  4. Rutin
  5. Apigenin
  6. Quercetin
  7. Cannflavin C
  8. Puteolin
  9. Vitexin
  10. Kaempferol
