Cannabis consumers are expected to rise substantially due to its legalization in many states. In fact, many researches have already shown and proved that Cannabis actually has many medical benefits that makes it an even more popular recreational option than it was before. And this widespread use is the reason that weed quantification for quality testing has become so necessary.
The different methods for quantification are for the purpose to test and control the quality of cannabis. It’s primarily necessary to ensure that no toxic substrates have adulterated the strain so that customers are supplied with the best quality weed only. Some such quantification techniques are listed below. Have a look!
1. The GC Quantification Method
GC is the Gas Chromatography of cannabinoids. It’s a quality testing method that’s used to determine that the flower is not affected by:
The cannabis sativa plant that’s used to produce CBD is essentially quality controlled by this technique since it is CBD that provides cannabis its healing properties. It clearly means that any adulteration will have a major impact on the health as well as expectation(s) of consumers.
Which is why, this specific quality testing technique has evolved so much in the past decade.
2. The HPLC Quantification Method
HPLC is high-performance liquid chromatography. It is basically done in order to quantify cannabinoids like THCA, THC, CBN, and CBD.
It’s a considerable quality testing method where mostly methanol and ethanol are used as solvents.
Ergo, this test is basically done to find out the potency of cannabis.
Other than these two quantification methods, a few evolving ones that you should know about are as follows.
LC–MS/MS for pesticide detection.
Compact Mass Spectrometry.
QuEChERS for removal of pesticides from cannabis.
That said, let’s now take you through some of the elementary benefits of cannabis that makes it a perfect health boosted.
Cannabis Reduces Anxiety – This is one of the reasons that weed has emerged as one of the clear winners during COVID-19 since it has helped people in dealing with a lot of stress by reducing anxiety and panic attacks.
Cannabis Treats Insomnia – Insomnia is another stress related symptom that Cannabis can easily handle. It relaxes the nerves that helps you sleep better.
Cannabis Improves Appetite – You’ll get back your appetite with cannabis in no time whether you smoke it or eat it.
All in all, high-quality cannabis is what should be supplied to all customers. And hence the quantification methods.
