“During our work in process optimization of cannabis production, we noticed a rate difference of decarboxylation for tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA) and cannabidiolic acid (CBDA)…”
Delic Labs’ abstract to the ACS talk in 2019 on the topic of decarboxylation, published in Terpenes and Testing
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.
