In this whitepaper, scientists from Broughton, a regulatory consultancy currently focused on EU and UK cannabis regulation, discuss the susceptibility of cannabinoids to degrade and summarize the main degradation pathways of the primary cannabinoid products on the market. 

The degradation pathways of these products are reviewed with consideration of the potential impact on product efficacy, consumer safety, and regulatory and legal compliance. A high-level review of how these degradation pathways may impact different dosage forms is provided, along with a consideration of how the formation of these breakdown products may be mitigated.

This whitepaper was first published on Analytical Cannabis as a two-part article series.
