Solutions for Cannabinoid Quantitation in Cannabis and Derived Edible Products using UPLC with UV and Mass Detection
As the legal use of cannabis and cannabis-infused edible products becomes more widespread, the number of manufacturers entering the medicinal and adult-use cannabis market continues to grow. Part of cultivating a strong, trustworthy brand includes ensuring accurate product labeling and manufacturing quality control. It is advantageous for product manufacturers to check cannabinoid content throughout the manufacturing process. This includes raw material characterization, formulation, and finished product testing to make sure the desired endpoint is met for labeling, and after set periods of time to determine shelf stability. To this end, having a fast, robust, and reliable analytical workflow that applies to a diverse cannabis product portfolio combined with an industry-leading data management platform is ideal. This presentation will describe a solution for the quantitation of 18 cannabinoids in various cannabis and derived edible products using UPLC with UV and mass detection.
