Olivetol CAS 500-66-3 applications

  1. Structural Role: Olivetol, also known as 5-pentylresorcinol, is a dihydroxyphenol compound. It consists of a central resorcinol core (1,3-dihydroxybenzene) with a pentyl (five-carbon) side chain attached to one of the hydroxyl groups.
  2. Cannabis-Related Compounds: Olivetol serves as an important precursor in the biosynthesis of cannabinoids, which are a class of compounds found in cannabis plants (Cannabis sativa). Through enzymatic reactions, olivetol is combined with geranyl pyrophosphate to produce cannabigerolic acid (CBGA), which is further converted into THC, CBD, and other cannabinoids via specific enzymes.
  3. Synthetic Applications: Olivetol can also be chemically synthesized and used in laboratory settings for the synthesis of various cannabinoids. Synthetic routes using olivetol as a starting material allow for the production of cannabinoids without relying on plant extraction methods.
  4. Research and Development: Olivetol and its derivatives are of interest in the field of cannabinoid research. Scientists explore the structure-activity relationships and biological properties of these compounds, aiming to better understand their pharmacological effects and potential therapeutic applications.
  5. Legal and Regulatory Considerations: The legal status of cannabinoids, including THC and CBD, can vary depending on the jurisdiction. It’s important to note that the use, production, and distribution of cannabinoids, including those derived from olivetol, may be subject to local laws and regulations.
