Simple and Accurate Quantification of THC and CBD in Cannabis-Infused Chocolate Edibles
Accurate measurement of ∆9-tetrahydrocannabinol (Δ9-THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) in samples with high fat content such as chocolate, brownies and cookies is a key testing requirement. Chocolate is a complex matrix, rich in protein, fat and cocoa, making it difficult to analyze. Accurate quantification of Δ9-THC and CBD ensures that the products meet an evolving regulatory landscape and it is paramount for legal considerations, safety reasons and to ensure proper labeling.
