What to Consider When Choosing Analytical Methods For the Quantification of Cannabinoids

by Dr Ali Seyfoddin
Published: Nov 26, 2021   

The specific aims of analytical techniques in a cannabis operation are to measure the potency, purity, and safety of cannabinoid products. Whether testing under recreational or medicinal legislation, there are multiple options that should suit your application. But how do you choose the right method for the right test? And what compromises should you expect to make and where?

This Analytical Cannabis listicle breaks down the interplay between legislative requirements, your goals and the overall costs of testing to help you understand what goes into choosing the correct analytical method to meet your needs.
