Many U.S. states have now legalized cannabis for either medical use or “adult” (recreational) use or both, and numerous health benefits have been reported for cannabis, including; general pain reduction, anti-nausea, reduction of seizures, and autism. QC testing for cannabinoids is essential for the accurate labeling of cannabis products in both medical and recreational cannabis markets. Cannabis “potency” is normally reserved for the quantitation of the major cannabinoids, including THCA, THC, CBD, and CBN.
