Cannabis Analysis Methods and Techniques for a Growing Industry

Langue : Anglais

Coordonnateurs : Smith Tyler N., Rennie Douglas

Cannabis Analysis: Methods and Techniques for a Growing Industry focuses on the critical cornerstone need for scientific, therapeutic and economic expansion of the cannabis industry - the accurate and efficient analysis of the composition and contaminants in cannabis and cannabis-based products. While there is an extensive body of scientific work focused on analytical methodology for cannabinoids compounds, the bulk of the literature is devoted to forensics and analysis for law enforcement purposes. Cannabis Analysis is the first analytical book to address the concerns and challenges of the cannabis industry using a focused and scientific approach. The analytical methods used in the cannabis industry today are far from standardized and are hotly debated among leaders in the cannabis field. This lack of uniformity poses risks and challenges for patients who use cannabis therapeutically, for state agencies who are tasked with overseeing cannabis laws, and for cannabis producers who want to ensure quality products. Written by academics and professionals whose work focuses on cannabis and its properties, this book serves as the reference standard for analytical methods in the cannabis industry.

  • Describes the challenges associated with analyzing cannabis products ? from preparing samples to accurately quantifying components
  • Presents methods and techniques for analyzing active components and contaminants and the state-of-the-art in cannabis analysis
  • Includes future directions for analytical methods
