New Cannabinoids Acids 7 Standard Simplifies Standard Prep and Reduces Errors

Published on: 

With more cannabinoid acids than other standards on the market, Restek’s newest certified reference material offers a simpler solution for cannabis and hemp potency testing.

Containing seven of the most frequently analyzed cannabinoid acids, our cannabinoids acids 7 standard reduces the time, expense, and error associated with in-house preparation of mixed standards from single-compound solutions. The 1000 μg/mL formulation is two to four times more concentrated than other commercially available standards, meaning less volume is required when preparing calibration solutions or fortifying QC samples. Because less volume is needed and more compounds are included, labs have greater flexibility in developing appropriate working standards for the wide range of cannabinoids and sample types encountered in potency testing. In addition to simplifying standard preparation, overall lab efficiency is improved by using Restek’s seven-compound blend because single-component solutions do not have to be sourced, inventoried, and maintained. Independently produced lots are also available, so ISO and your quality program requirements can be met with a single order.

Restek’s new cannabinoid acids mix (cat.# 34144) contains the following compounds at 1000 μg/mL:

• Cannabichromenic acid (CBCA)

• Cannabidiolic acid (CBDA)

• Cannabidivarinic acid (CBDVA)

• Cannabigerolic acid (CBGA)

• Cannabinolic acid (CBNA)

• Tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA-A)

• Tetrahydrocannabivarinic acid (THCVA)
