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!

"A high-throughput method for the comprehensive analysis of terpenes and terpenoids in medicinal cannabis biomass"

Cannabis and its secondary metabolite content have recently seen a surge in research interest. Cannabis terpenes and terpenoids in particular are increasingly the focus of research efforts due to the possibility of their contribution to the overall therapeutic effect of medicinal cannabis. Current methodology to quantify terpenes in cannabis biomass mostly relies on large quantities of biomass, long extraction protocols, and long gas chromatography (GC) gradient times, often exceeding 60 minutes. They are therefore not easily applicable in the high-throughput environment of a cannabis breeding program. The method presented here, however, is based on a simple hexane extract from 40 mg of biomass, with 50 μg/mL dodecane as internal standard, and a gradient of less than 30 minutes. (Full article...)

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!
