Cannabis Analysis: Methods and Techniques for a Growing Industry focuses on the need for the scientific, therapeutic and economic expansion of the cannabis industry and the accurate analysis of composition and contaminants. While there is an extensive body of scientific work focused on analytical methodologies for cannabinoid compounds, the bulk of the literature is devoted to forensics and analysis for law enforcement purposes. This marks the first analytical book to address these challenges that uses a focused and scientific approach. A sheer lack of uniformity in the industry poses risks and challenges for patients, growers and state agencies tasked with overseeing cannabis laws.
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
Analytical testing laboratories cannabis testing and compliance services; Analytical instrument companies which serve or want to expand into the cannabis industry; State agencies involved in cannabis compliance; Cannabis growers, providers, and processors; Cannabis industry consultants; Academic researchers interested in cannabis science
