Benefits and Best Practices for LIMS Implementation in Cannabis Testing Labs
Cannabis (aka hemp or marijuana) is a wind-pollinating genus of flowering plants in the family Cannabaceae. This complex plant contains a group of chemicals known as cannabinoids, many of which have shown significant biological activity. Two cannabinoids in particular, cannabidiol (CBD) and delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), have gained much recognition for their mental and physical effects when consumed. To date, over 100 different cannabinoids have been isolated from cannabis plants, and these compounds are generating significant interest in the pharmaceutical industry for potential drug and biologics production. Cannabis Testing Labs must implement the right processes to keep pace with regulation and innovation.
