Rapid and Comprehensive Analysis of Cannabinoid Potency by HPLC/UV using the Ascentis Express C18 Column
contributed by MilliporeSigma |
Cannabinoids are a class of psychoactive and nonpsychoactive compounds produced in the Cannabis (marijuana) plant. In recent years, these compounds have shown potential therapeutic efficacy in the treatment of pain, mood disorders, and inflammatory diseases. Since the concentration-to-potency of cannabinoids in Cannabis can fluctuate through various stages of plant growth and in different plant strains, it is imperative for patients that Cannabis cultivators ensure cannabinoid identity as well as consistent purity and concentration. Cannabinoids can be analyzed using multiple methods, with HPLC being the most common technique. Analysis was performed using UV detection though it can be transferred to other detectors such as LC/MS. We offer the complete line of relevant products for cannabinoid potency testing including HPLC columns, solvents, and certified reference materials (CRMs).
