07/12/2021 - Risk assessment of over-the-counter cannabinoid-based cosmetics: Legal and regulatory issues governing the safety of cannabinoid-based cosmetics in the UAE

In this 2021 article published in Cosmetics, Jairoun et al. describe the details of reportedly the first study in the United Arab Emirates (U.A.E.) "to measure to what extent topical cannabinoid-based consumer products contain undeclared tetrahydrocannabinol" (THC). Noting a lack of such studies in the U.A.E. as well as other parts of the world, the researchers used gas chromatography–mass spectrometry (GC-MS) to analyze 18 cannabinoid-based cosmetics manufactured in the U.S. and E.U. and sold in the U.A.E. to determine their undeclared THC and tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA) content. After discussing their methodology, materials, and results, the authors conclude that with the discovery of "high levels of undeclared tetrahydrocannabinol" during their study, there is a real need for "cannabinoid-based cosmetic product producers to issue quality certificates ... [and provide] stricter monitoring and control regarding their [products'] safety and quality."
