There is a lot of talk about the conversion of THCA to THC in the scientific cannabis community, but nobody can agree on the best conditions for this reaction to occur. Knowing the best conditions, and working under these conditions, can save companies time and money. So, Delic labs teamed up with PerkinElmer to design a technique to watch this reaction in real time, so the best conditions for this reaction can be determined.
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.
