Cannabis-related Bioanalysis (from Plant to Forensic) using LC-CMS (Single Quad)


The legalization of marijuana and hemp provides commercial opportunities as well as analytical challenges. Accurate and precise quantitative analysis of plant and medicinal products is needed in this new industry to document composition and assure the safety of cannabis products. LC/MS techniques can provide unparalleled selective and sensitive measurements for these purposes. Here we describe the use of a relatively inexpensive compact mass spectrometer for SIM LC/MS analysis of cannabis-related applications.
