The renewed interest in the no-drug type of Cannabis sativa L. represents the basis of new value chains for the sustainable development and the genesis of innovative products in food and nutraceutical sectors. In this context, the selection of seed varieties of Cannabis sativa L., the careful study of bioactive components from fruit and other plant organs, also those not directly useful in the food sector, open up to technology transfer for products’ innovation and process.
The production of hemp-based goods with high added value promotes the creation of a dynamic and circular supply chain in which the recovery of bioactive compounds, beyond phytocannabinoids, from hemp products, by-products and wastes is the driving force for the development of nutraceuticals and/or cosmeceuticals.
This Special Issue welcomes submissions (both in the form of original research papers and reviews) that deal with the deep investigation of hemp chemistry, as a key issue to pursue not only to provide a proper revival of ancient but overlooked/unknown food usages, but, above all to ensure bioactivity and effectiveness of hemp unique and diverse phytochemicals.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Molecules is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
