Factors Influencing Yields in Extraction, Part I: Understanding the Influence of Starting Material and Performing Extraction Calculations

April 4, 2019

At a glance, modern extraction machines can seem a little mysterious: plant material is added to an extraction chamber, processing parameters are chosen, the extraction process is carried out, and an output of material is collected. Part I of this series examines the two main biologically-inherent starting-material influences.

Analysis of Terpenes in Cannabis Using Headspace Solid-Phase Microextraction and GC–MS

February 28, 2018

Headspace SPME combined with GC–MS for the qualitative and quantitative analysis of terpenes in cannabis offers several advantages compared to other methods. It does not require the use of organic solvents, does not coextract matrix, and provides additional means of peak identification and purity using spectral data. It is also a nondestructive method.
