14 April 2020

In recent years a lot of research has been done on the medicinal use of Cannabis sativa. Cannabinol (CBN), cannabidiol (CBD) and ∆9-tetrahydrocannabinol (∆9-THC) are the most studied active ingredients for medicinal use treating several health disorders, e.g.migraine, epilepsy, appetite loss. In this application note, CAMAG demonstrates how investigations into confirming the presence of cannabinoids in cannabis can be performed using high-performance thin-layer chromatography-mass spectrometry.
