Many European countries have now legalised cannabis for medical use. Numerous health benefits have been reported for cannabis, including; general pain reduction, anti-nausea, reduction of seizures, and autism. QC testing for cannabinoids is essential for the accurate labelling of cannabis products in both medical and recreational cannabis markets. Cannabis “potency” is normally determined by quantitation of the major cannabinoids, including THCA, THC, CBD, and CBN.
Shimadzu’s Cannabis Analyser allows for testing of multiple cannabis products with pre-set proven methods:
- High Throughput Method – allows for quantitative analysis of 10 cannabinoids (no THCV) in under eight minutes
- High Sensitivity Method – allows for 11 cannabinoids (including THCV) in under 10 minutes. The method provides the sharpest chromatographic peaks and best sensitivity
- High Resolution Method – For baseline separation of 11+ components, including THCV. This is the preferred method when performing research, adding additional compounds, or state regulations change
All done using Shimadzu custom cannabis analyser software from quick sample set to easy reporting.
