Pesticide residue analysis in cannabis: Method fundamentals and confirmation strategies
28 Oct 2020
Pesticide residue testing is challenging but even more so when testing pesticides in cannabis. It can be hard to know where to start with method fundamentals but luckily, the chemical contaminants community has developed excellent guidelines that can be used. It is important to understand fundamental criteria for basic method development.
Establishing a truly robust method can help mitigate long term problems and add confidence to results. It can be stressful to tell a client that their sample tested positive for pesticides especially if it failed regulatory requirements. In the cannabis market, this situation will often prompt questions about the validity of the results. In addition to suitable method criteria, confirmation strategies can be employed to verify results and reassure clients.
