TRADELABOR has more than 20 years of experience in the control and treatment of air, working with an experienced and qualified technical staff and with the most advanced technology in this area, which together guarantee the quality of the services provided.
The aim of this work is to validate the analytical method of quantifying cannabinoids (THC,
CBD and CBN) using the GC-FID system. The method was to be accredited and will be used
daily in the chemistry department of the Estonian Forensic Science Institute`s.
THC, CBD and CBN are three out of 70 cannabinoids unique to cannabis. As THC is the main
psychoactive agent in cannabis plant, it is carefully monitored.
In Estonia as in most European Union countries it is legal to grow cannabis in which the THC
concentration does not exceed 0.2%. Determining the THC concentration is one of the routine
analyses in EFSI.
Cannabis is mainly used in two ways – agricultural cannabis, which is grown for its fibre,
energy, seeds and oil; and illegal cannabis, which is used as narcotic substance or the source of
narcotic substances. In EFSI both kind of cannabis samples must have been analysed. 0.2% of
THC is the level critical for both sample groups.
In illegal cannabis and its products the THC concentration reaches up to almost 30% whereas
the THC concentration in agricultural cannabis is well below the limit.
