Cannabis Laboratory Fundamentals Book Review:

The legislative requirement for cannabis to undergo laboratory testing has followed legalization of medical and recreational use in every U.S. state to date. Cannabis safety testing is a new investment opportunity within the emerging cannabis market that is separate from cultivation, processing, and distribution, allowing individuals and organizations who may have been reluctant to enter previously a new entry route to the cannabis space. However, many of the costs, timelines, operational requirements, and compliance issues are overlooked by people who have not been exposed to regulated laboratory testing. Cannabis Laboratory Fundamentals provides an in-depth review of the key issues that impact cannabis testing laboratories and provides recommendations and solutions to avoid common – but expensive – mistakes. The text goes beyond methodology to include sections on economics, regulation, and operational challenges, making it useful for both new and experienced cannabis laboratory operators, as well as all those who want to understand the opportunities and risks of this industry.

The Health Effects of Cannabis and Cannabinoids Book Review:

Significant changes have taken place in the policy landscape surrounding cannabis legalization, production, and use. During the past 20 years, 25 states and the District of Columbia have legalized cannabis and/or cannabidiol (a component of cannabis) for medical conditions or retail sales at the state level and 4 states have legalized both the medical and recreational use of cannabis. These landmark changes in policy have impacted cannabis use patterns and perceived levels of risk. However, despite this changing landscape, evidence regarding the short- and long-term health effects of cannabis use remains elusive. While a myriad of studies have examined cannabis use in all its various forms, often these research conclusions are not appropriately synthesized, translated for, or communicated to policy makers, health care providers, state health officials, or other stakeholders who have been charged with influencing and enacting policies, procedures, and laws related to cannabis use. Unlike other controlled substances such as alcohol or tobacco, no accepted standards for safe use or appropriate dose are available to help guide individuals as they make choices regarding the issues of if, when, where, and how to use cannabis safely and, in regard to therapeutic uses, effectively. Shifting public sentiment, conflicting and impeded scientific research, and legislative battles have fueled the debate about what, if any, harms or benefits can be attributed to the use of cannabis or its derivatives, and this lack of aggregated knowledge has broad public health implications. The Health Effects of Cannabis and Cannabinoids provides a comprehensive review of scientific evidence related to the health effects and potential therapeutic benefits of cannabis. This report provides a research agendaâ€"outlining gaps in current knowledge and opportunities for providing additional insight into these issuesâ€"that summarizes and prioritizes pressing research needs.

Cannabis Analysis Book Review:

Cannabis Analysis: Methods and Techniques for a Growing Industry focuses on the critical cornerstone need for scientific, therapeutic and economic expansion of the cannabis industry - the accurate and efficient analysis of the composition and contaminants in cannabis and cannabis-based products. While there is an extensive body of scientific work focused on analytical methodology for cannabinoids compounds, the bulk of the literature is devoted to forensics and analysis for law enforcement purposes. Cannabis Analysis is the first analytical book to address the concerns and challenges of the cannabis industry using a focused and scientific approach. The analytical methods used in the cannabis industry today are far from standardized and are hotly debated among leaders in the cannabis field. This lack of uniformity poses risks and challenges for patients who use cannabis therapeutically, for state agencies who are tasked with overseeing cannabis laws, and for cannabis producers who want to ensure quality products. Written by academics and professionals whose work focuses on cannabis and its properties, this book serves as the reference standard for analytical methods in the cannabis industry. Describes the challenges associated with analyzing cannabis products - from preparing samples to accurately quantifying components Presents methods and techniques for analyzing active components and contaminants and the state-of-the-art in cannabis analysis Includes future directions for analytical methods

Cannabis Analysis Book Review:

Cannabis has a long history in the world as a plant with agricultural and medicinal value. However, the prohibition of cannabis began when it was listed under the 1925 Opium convention by the League of Nations currently known as the United Nations. Despite attempts to prohibit cannabis, coming into the 21st century, countries around the world have begun to legalise its use for both medical and recreational purpose. This study was aimed at assessing the THC and CBD content of cannabis samples from three geographically distinct regions in New Zealand as well as cannabis samples from Samoa using Gas Chromatography-Flame Ionization Detector analysis. Furthermore, the collected cannabis samples were used to determine whether their origins can be distinguished using elemental profiles obtained by Inductively Coupled Plasma-Mass Spectrometry and Laser Ablation- Inductively Coupled Plasma-Mass Spectrometry. Lastly, a novel method in the manufacture of cannabis oil in New Zealand using a petroleum-based solvent called Fuelite as opposed to isopropanol was assessed. Furthermore, using heat during the extraction was also assessed whether a change in yield would be observed. The results from the experiments carried out on the cannabis samples showed that the majority of the cannabis samples had a higher THC content than its CBD content. Female flowering cannabis samples from police casework are also presented. Using their THC and CBD content, the chemotypes of the cannabis samples were also assessed. Using principal component analysis and linear discriminant analysis, the elemental profiles of these cannabis plants were then statistically evaluated and their respective regions of origin were correctly identified. Lastly, the results from using Fuelite as an extraction solvent showed it was also possible to determine the extraction solvent used in the manufacture of the cannabis oil using Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy of the headspace from the damp cannabis plant material used in the manufacturing process. Furthermore, Gas Chromatography- Mass Spectroscopy analysis of the extracts from confirmed the presence of THC however harmful residual hydrocarbons were present in the extract which used Fuelite, which were not present in extracts carried out using isopropanol. It was difficult to determine whether there was a change in yield when heat was used during the extraction process due to variability in the results.

Measuring Heavy Metal Contaminants in Cannabis and Hemp Book Review:

The surge of interest in cannabis-based medicinal products has put an extremely high demand on testing capabilities, particularly for contaminants such as heavy metals, which are naturally taken up through the roots of the plants from the soil, growing medium, and fertilizers but can also be negatively impacted by the grinding equipment and extraction/distillation process. Unfortunately, many state regulators do not have the necessary experience and background to fully understand all the safety and toxicological issues regarding the cultivation and production of cannabis and hemp products on the market today. Measuring Heavy Metal Contaminants in Cannabis and Hemp offers a comprehensive guide to the entire cannabis industry for measuring elemental contaminants in cannabis and hemp. For testing labs, it describes fundamental principles and practical capabilities of ICP-MS and other AS techniques for measuring heavy metals in cannabis. For state regulators, it compares maximum contaminant limits of heavy metals with those for federally regulated pharmaceutical materials. For cultivators and processors, it helps them to better understand the many sources of heavy metals in cannabis. And for consumers of medical cannabis, it highlights the importance of choosing cannabis products that are safe to use. Other key topics include: The role of other analytical techniques for the comprehensive testing of cannabis products Tips to optimize analytical procedures to ensure the highest quality data Guidance on how to characterize elemental contaminants in vaping liquids and aerosols Suggestions on how to reduce errors using plasma spectrochemistry The role of certified reference materials to validate standard methods Easy-to-read sections on instrumental hardware components, calibration and measurement protocols, typical interferences, routine maintenance, and troubleshooting procedures Written with the cannabis testing community in mind, this book is also an invaluable resource for growers, cultivators, processors, testers, regulators, and even consumers who are interested in learning more about the potential dangers of heavy metal contaminants in cannabis and hemp.

A True Guide To Cannabis Concentrates Book Review:

From weed oil cartridges to medicated muscle creams, you can find cannabis concentrates in hundreds of products. Concentrates are products made from the cannabis plant that have been processed to keep only the most desirable plant compounds (primarily the cannabinoids and terpenes), while removing excess plant material and other impurities. Ounce for ounce, marijuana concentrates have a greater proportion of cannabinoids and terpenes when compared to natural cannabis flowers.Concentrates can also help increase the potency of your flower. The next time you pack a bowl with cannabis flower, try sprinkling kief on top, or add drops of concentrate oil to cannabis flower before rolling your joint. Cannabis concentrate products can also be consumed on their own. For example, concentrates can be vaporized using a portable vaporizer or dab rig (this activity is referred to as "dabbing"). Dabbing has quickly become one of the most popular consumption methods in the market. In order to prepare yourself for the diverse world of cannabis concentrates, it's important to learn about each type, how to dab or consume them, as well as how they are made. That way, the next time someone asks you: what is marijuana wax or cannabis concentrate? You can bestow your newly acquired wealth of knowledge upon them. Concentrates let you experience cannabis in a multitude of ways; they come in a variety of textures and can be consumed using several different methods. The look and feel of a concentrate doesn't necessarily indicate its level of quality (effects, flavor, potency); these are simply aesthetics that can help you keep track of your personal preferences. One of the leading benefits of concentrates is the rapid onset time and the ability to yield a high more potent than consuming cannabis flower. Concentrates have a high bioavailability, meaning the effects you feel and experience, as well as the rate of absorption into your body, happen almost immediately. The effects of a cannabis concentrate can last anywhere from 1 to 3 hours, depending on the person.
