Cannabicitran is an important cannabinoid natural product produced by Cannabis sativa and is often found at surprisingly high levels (up to ~10%) in “purified” commercial cannabidiol (CBD) extract preparations. Despite the prevalence of this molecule in CBD oil and other cannabinoid-related products, and the rapidly expanding interest in cannabinoids for treatment of a wide range of physiological conditions, only unassigned 1 H NMR data and partial unambiguous 13 C assignments have been published. Herein we report the complete 1 H and 13 C NMR assignments of cannabicitran and comparatively evaluate the performance of several DFT methods with varying levels of theory for the calculation of NMR chemical shifts.
