ERICo - Communication between nature, society and modern technology

Novice

Analysis of Industrial Hemp (Cannabis sativa ) is a new service of the ERICo Institute. The methodology has been developed on the basis of our own knowledge in the field of organic analysis and separation techniques and, recent publications in the scientific literature, as well as cooperation with experts on the development of practical chromatographic techniques from abroad. Industrial hemp, and a wide range of semi-finished products on the basis thereof (foodstuffs, food supplements or cosmetics) are analysed.

In the industrial hemp a wide range of cannabinoids are determined:
• delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol (D9-THC)
• a delta-8 tetrahydrocannabinol (D8-THC), cannabidiol (CBD);
• cannabinol (CBN),
• cannabichromene (CBC);
• cannabigerol (CBG);
• cannabidiolic acid (CBDA), and
• delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinolic  acid (THCA).

Presented analytical method (with the exception of CBG and the CGC) is accredited by Slovenian Accreditation.
