Due to the complex nature of the cannabis plant, a complete and reliable analysis can be difficult to achieve. The first step to any analysis is to ensure a complete extraction or digestion. In this webcast, you will learn techniques and tools for fast, efficient, and reproducible extraction and analysis of cannabis and hemp samples. Discussions on the methods for extraction and LC-UV analysis of cannabinoids from cannabis and cannabis infused products will be presented. This simple process can be done in under 30 minutes for fast and reliable results. Furthermore, extraction of pesticides and microwave digestion of mixed samples including flower, edibles, lotions, extracts, and oils will be addressed. CEM is dedicated to providing guidance for sample preparation and analysis of constituents and contaminants in cannabis and cannabis containing products to labs worldwide.
