(Workshop Presentation) Cannabis QC testing is paramount to providing accurately labeled cannabis products- a critical step in proper cannabinoid dosing. There is a wide array of instrumentation and sample preparation techniques that can be applied to cannabis QC testing. Also, there are a number of organizations working independently to develop cannabis standards and methods. We will take a closer look at these needs, examine the changing landscape of cannabis science and review some of the movers and shakers impacting cannabis quality on a global level. We will explore topics beyond potency testing, including terpene profiling and the increasing importance of contaminant screening, including pesticides, residual solvents, heavy metals and microorganisms.
This session will peer into a cannabis crystal ball and discuss the importance of genomics testing, personalized cannaceuticals and the future of cannabis analytical research. Lastly, Mr.Crossney will share opportunities where both experts and novices alike can gain first-hand experience in all aspects of the cannabis industry-
from cultivation and pre-processing through extractions, sample preparation and quality control testing.
