Welcome to CannaQAWiki. This wiki continues to be a work in progress, but new content is slowly being added. For example, check out the latest third edition of our guide Past, Present, and Future of Cannabis Laboratory Testing and Regulation in the United States. Additionally, the guide Starting a Cannabis Testing Laboratory has been updated for 2021, and the LIMSpec for Cannabis Testing has been released. Check back soon for additional content!

"Chemical profiling and characterization of different cultivars of Cannabis sativa L. inflorescences by SPME-GC-MS and UPLC-MS"

The chemical profile of Cannabis sativa L. female inflorescences is rather complex, being characterized by a large number of molecules belonging to different chemical classes. Considering the numerous applications of cannabis in various fields—including the medical and pharmaceutical sectors, which have seen an increasing use for the Cannabis genus in recent years—a precise characterization of the matrices is essential. In this regard, the application of adequate and suitable sampling and analysis techniques becomes important in order to provide an identification of the metabolites characterizing the profile of the sample under examination ...

My 420 Tours guide.jpg
A fourth edition of Past, Present, and Future of Cannabis Laboratory Testing and Regulation in the United States has been released! This latest iteration updates many statistics, adds new regulation updates, and significantly updates many of the guide's resources such as the list of approved cannabis cultivators and testing laboratories. The update also adds additional context to standardization and accreditation efforts, including enforcement and quality subsections. It also adds a few more contextual bits of information about laboratory automation and its role in the cannabis testing lab.

I'm pleased to announce a new guide that has been released, the LIMS Buyer’s Guide for Cannabis Testing Laboratories. This guide recognizes the challenges of the current cannabis testing environment for laboratories and identifies the value of the laboratory information management system (LIMS) towards lessening the impact of those challenges on the cannabis testing lab. Not only does it address how the acquisition process should be approached and who the key players are, but it also addresses the current state of cannabis testing, and how well-implemented informatics can play a role towards a more efficient and compliant lab. Finally, an RFI for evaluating cannabis testing LIMS vendors is included to help you with the acquisition process. I hope you find this guide helpful!
