Welcome to CannaQAwiki, an encyclopedia for Cannabis and hemp, and the scientific and regulatory aspects that surround them.

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. Check back soon for additional content!

New to CannaQAwiki? We're kind of new to this as well. In case you don't know where to begin, here are some starting points for you:

"Analysis of cannabidiol, delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol, and their acids in CBD/hemp oil products"

Hemp products are readily available and are aggressively marketed for their health and medicinal benefits. Most consumers of these products are interested because of their cannabidiol (CBD) content, which has taken the natural products industry by storm. The CBD and delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (delta-9-THC) concentrations in these products are often absent, and even where labeled, the accuracy of the label amounts is often questionable. In order to gain a better understanding of the CBD content, fifty hemp products were analyzed by gas chromatography coupled with mass spectrometry (GC-MS) for CBD, delta-9-THC, tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (delta-9-THCAA), and cannabidiolic acid (CBDA). Delta-9-THCAA and CBDA are the natural precursors of delta-9-THC and CBD in the plant material. (Full article...)

Articles and reference works

Our wiki is young and will take time to grow. However, here are some of our important topical articles and guides, as well as reference works like lists and tables (which specifically appear in the "RefWork" namespace):
 

Topical articles and guides:


Our reference works (so far):

CannaQAwiki journal articles
Open-access articles becoming more common

A CannaQAwiki journal article is a selected open-access article relating to scientific aspects of the Cannabis plant, free to republish elsewhere with proper citation. You can browse the collection using the tools below.

News and updates

Marihuana Test.jpg
This is just a brief update to announce two things. First, the guide Starting a Cannabis Testing Laboratory has received a slight update for 2021. Some of the statistics were a little outdated, and some of the citations were broken. This update also tweaked grammar a bit more and added a few new sentences to clarify points. However, given that U.S. Federal legalization is still not a reality, most of the content still remains highly relevant, if not largely the same. Second, a specification document—LIMSpec for Cannabis Testing—developed for cannabis testing software systems, e.g., LIMS, has been released. It's largely derived from the base LIMSpec document on LIMSwiki but tweaked to address the needs of a cannabis testing laboratory. Hope you find these documents useful!

My 420 Tours guide.jpg
I'm pleased to announce that the third edition of Past, Present, and Future of Cannabis Laboratory Testing and Regulation in the United States is now complete. Started in 2017, the guide sought to provide a balanced look at the industry surrounding the Cannabis plant, particularly in the United States, with a strong focus on laboratory testing. As more U.S. states (and other countries) have legalized the plant's use, the cannabis industry continues to rapidly evolve in ways expected and unexpected. This third edition builds on previous material, adding more historical perspective on changing regulations, standards, and social impacts. It also adds timely topics such as how the insurance market is catering to cannabis companies, and it highlights new efforts to standardize not only laboratory testing but also accreditation of testing labs. One other major move: we've moved primary hosting to this wiki from LIMSwiki, a wiki similar in vein to this one but with a strong focus on laboratory informatics technology. Enjoy!
