This application note presents a high sensitivity HPLC method for determining the potency of cannabis extracts with the Shimadzu Cannabis Analyzer for Potency. In recreational marijuana, the psychoactive cannabinoid THC is of primary interest, while in medicinal cannabis high levels of CBD and low levels of THC are desirable. The CBD/THC ratio is highly important for medical personnel prescribing cannabis for medicinal purposes.
Download this application note for a QuEChERS method for analyzing pesticides, mycotoxins and cannabinoids in cannabis extracts. The combination of these three analyses saves time, sample volume and overall cost. This simple method will be beneficial for any research facility wanting to implement regulatory testing.
Separating cannabinoids is an important process that is necessary for clinical studies. In this method, the cannabinoids THC, THCA and CBD are extracted and collected separately using a PrepChrom C-700 system. Separating and making cannabinoids water soluble enables use of aqueous solvents that offer inherent economic and ecologic advantages over common organic solvents.
Cannabinoids mimic endocannabinoids which are signaling molecules used by the brain to regulate a number of processes. In this application note, NemaMetrix’s ScreenChip is used to test the hypothesis that the endocannabinoid anandamide, which is mimicked by THC, produces hyperphagia (increased motivation to eat) in C. elegans.
With the legalization of medicinal and recreational cannabis across a number of states in the US, both forensic and toxicology laboratories are looking for fast, reliable methods to determine the potency of cannabis and screen for pesticides. Read this application note to learn an effective hybrid QuEChERS method suitable for utilization in a medico-legal setting.
Terpenes and terpenoid compounds are naturally occurring compounds that give cannabis its unique fragrance. These compounds also have advantageous health benefits and have a synergistic relationship with cannabinoids, enhancing the therapeutic effect of medicinal cannabis. Terpene levels in cannabis decrease over time, leading to different batches of the drug having unique terpene fingerprints. This application note describes the analysis of several batches of cannabis for terpenes using GC-MS.
Read this white paper to learn about the history, modern uses of, and regulations controlling cannabis and general botanicals in the US, as well as methods to improve botanical product quality through specialized equipment. Product quality is directly dependent on a consistent, repeatable manufacturing process to which proper laboratory equipment is absolutely essential. Ideal equipment for this application ensures plant or product isolation, contamination control, and proper air filtration.
As cannabis is a Schedule 1 drug in the US and is illegal on a federal level, medicinal cannabis patients have no safety assurances for their medication. Discover how a simple QuEChERS extraction approach with cartridge SPE cleanup, followed by GCxGC-TOFMS, can be used to accurately identify and quantify contaminants in cannabis extracts.
Find out how a fully compliant cannabis extraction facility was set up in a converted office space on the second floor of a shared building, connected to other suites. Download this case study to read more about the unique challenges presented by this project and the solutions provided by Erlab to address them.
With the chains on the highly-regulated cannabis market loosening worldwide, the demand for medical goods such as tablets, sprays and tinctures is increasing. With the increasing need for cannabis products, industrial scale production is even more necessary. Discover how the BUCHI industrial Rotoavapor® line has proven to be the ideal solution for multiple applications in the production of cannabinoids due to low investment and running costs.
