Researchers are printing QR codes onto edible paper with THC and CBD "ink"
Charlotte Barker | | Quick Read
Pharmaceutical scientists from the University of Copenhagen, Denmark, aim to improve traceability of cannabis-based pharmaceuticals by printing QR codes onto edible paper with cannabinoid-containing "ink" - a system they call data-enriched edible pharmaceuticals (DEEP) (1). The DEEP allow dosages to be precisely calibrated to the individual patient and, by allowing tracking of each unit with any smartphone, could deter drug diversion.
