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:

"Screening for more than 1,000 pesticides and environmental contaminants in cannabis by GC/Q-TOF"

A method has been developed to screen cannabis extracts for more than 1,000 pesticides and environmental pollutants using gas chromatography coupled to a high-resolution accurate mass quadrupole time-of-flight mass spectrometer (GC/Q-TOF). An extraction procedure was developed using acetonitrile with solid-phase extraction cleanup. Before analysis, extracts were diluted 125:1 with solvent. Two data mining approaches were used together with a retention-time-locked Personal Compound Database and Library (PCDL) containing high-resolution accurate mass spectra for pesticides and other environmental pollutants.

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):

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!

Momentum 08131 nevit.jpg
We've seen a bit more momentum in getting content added to the wiki, but like many a wiki, it's most certainly a gradual process. Most notable over the last month we've added a section for and created a "glossary" of sorts for listing most of the available wiki content. As new pages get added, they are getting categorized into the glossary, which is also now available as a "List of articles" link in the left-hand site navigation. Future plans include adding more encyclopedic content, journal articles, and self-developed research. Stay tuned!
