Cannabis Compliance Testing: Safety vs. Quality
A lack of budget and awareness means cannabis companies don’t test beyond what is required by health canada, which means searching for unidentified, potentially dangerous compounds, as well as tests for quality, rarely occur.
As different cannabis products have differing potency levels, knowing the potency of a product is important for determining the correct dosage. Currently, chromatography is used for potency testing of cannabis products. We teamed up with Agilent to show that FTIR spectroscopy can also be used to further enhance these testing processes.
