Quality control of dried cannabis

Feb 08 2024

The discovery of the key cannabinoids- THC, CBD, and CBG- brought in a new era of medical exploration. Whilst THC is classified as an illicit drug, CBD has been legally embraced in numerous regions worldwide. This is due its benefits which include, promoting better sleep and relieving anxiety.

In the quest for a precise potency assessment, traditional methods like HPLC analysis often prove taxing, as they require time and chemical resources. Near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) can thus be considered a game-changer in cannabis analysis. In less than a minute, NIRS can deliver comprehensive cannabinoid profiles without the need for chemical reagents.
