Cannabis vs Coffee: The Science Behind the Ultimate Extraction
Whether filtered coffee, French press, or espresso, all methods for brewing involve the central process of extraction. Each brewing method requires a consistent and ideal size of grind, ranging from coarse to super fine, and each extraction method calls for uniform coffee particles in order to deliver the unique characteristics of the brew.One could think of cannabis or hemp concentrates in a similar light.
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.
