Timing is everything. Understand the when to harvest, how long to cure and what the storage or shelf life is like by testing the potency with industry standard scientific methods. Cannabinoids change overtime throughout its cycle of life. Timing and test data is extremely important to achieving constancy and quality in products.
What are the implications? The harvest date has major implications. Cannabinoid and terpene levels can vary significantly within the last few weeks of flowering and across the crop. Achieving optimum effect and desired potency with consistent results means choosing when to harvest becomes critical.
How do you accurately measure cannabinoids (THC % and CBD%)? The industry standard is to use high performance liquid chromatography as it separates a sample into its individual compounds, they can be identified and calculated for percentage concentration, including cannabinoids and terpenes.
Cannabinoids and Potency
Accurately determine and quantify cannabinoids with near real-time results. Make time critical decisions to optimize cannabinoid THC & CBD production. With the help of in-house potency testing you can:
The UV-VIS Spectrophotometry technology is based on the molecules absorbing energy of different wavelengths of lights. Therefore, measuring the wavelength or maximum absorption can identify the molecular group of the sample. The higher concentration of molecules, the greater the absorption. Using the standard of known concentration as a reference, the unknown sample concentration can be determined. What does the UV-VIS Spectrophotometer measure? It measures the exact N, P, or K concentration levels or other micro-nutrients in a sample growth media. This instrument will permit you to compare an initial sample to samples taken throughout the growth cycles to determine the rate of which it is growing.
What can you do with the data collected? The data will allow you to learn exactly what and how much needs to be added to maintain good health of the plant. You can also experiment with different formulations to determine what works and what does not work for a particular strand and growth techniques.
