Cannabinoid Profiling

Cannabinoid Profiling

Cannabinoids are the naturally occurring chemical compounds found in cannabis that work together to produce varying psychoactive and non-psychoactive effects.  In combination, they are known to act synergistically to form an ‘entourage effect’, providing benefits beyond what each individually would ordinarily provide.

We test for cannabinoids via three different instruments: LC-UV (most routine samples), LC-MS/MS (if extremely low limits of detection are required) and GC-FID (upon request). If there are ever unexpected discrepancies regarding our analytical results, we will retest the sample for free and work with you to determine the root cause.

Cannabinoid Profiling


(Liquid Chromatography-UV) can be used to accurately quantify the presence of 13 cannabinoids:

  • Tetrahydrocannabinol (∆9-THC)
  • Tetrahydrocannabinol (∆8-THC)
  • Tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (∆9-THCA)
  • Tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV)
  • Tetrahydrocannabivarinic acid (THCVA)
  • Cannabidiol (CBD)
  • Cannabidiolic Acid (CBDA)
  • Cannabidivarin (CBDV)
  • Cannabigerol (CBG)
  • Cannabigerolic Acid (CBGA)
  • Cannabinol (CBN)
  • Cannabichromene (CBC)
  • Cannabichromenic acid (CBCA)
