Changing Potency Landscapes: Emergence of Synthetic Cannabinoids

On Demand

Published: Sep 13, 2022   

Delta-8-THC, with more limited psychoactive effects relative to its Delta-9-THC cousin, is only found naturally in trace quantities in cannabis, but can easily be created by the semi-synthetic isomerization from the readily available and inexpensive CBD, extracted from compliant hemp biomass. However, the synthetic processes used for these conversions can be unpredictable, resulting in consumer products containing unintended side products, contaminants and isomers of THC.

During this webinar we will discuss:

  • The synthetic pathways used in conversion, the complexity of resulting products, and the application of multiple orthogonal analytical approaches to identify impurities.
  • The changing regulatory landscape which will impact the commercialization of products containing these compounds.
