This short course will introduce the audience to the cannabis and CBD industry and the analytical challenges of testing samples in an ISO17025 accredited laboratory setting. Driven by the widespread adoption of cannabis & CBD products, the opportunity for scientists to support this market is significant but must be approached with scientific care as the pitfalls due to the matrix interference, trace level detection requirements and limited standardized methodology make this task challenging. The focus will be placed on the US and International (GMP) regulatory requirements, proficiency testing, analytical methods and technology required to test edibles for pesticide residues, residual solvents, terpenes, and cannabinoids. Specific details on how to establish validated methodology will be presented. Data will be presented on the application challenges to increase the awareness of the unique methodologies required for testing cannabis and hemp samples.
