Available only in the US and Canada. Agilent products and solutions are intended to be used for cannabis quality control and safety testing in laboratories where such use is permitted under state/country law.
Potency testing looks at the total content of cannabinoid content, including tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and other phytocannabinoids such as cannabidiol (CBD), cannabigerol (CBG), and tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV). This method provides reliable, robust profiling and quantification for 11 of the most commonly targeted cannabinoids under 10 minutes.
The Agilent 1220 Infinity II LC offers reliable and robust profiling and quantification for 11 of the most commonly targeted cannabinoids found in cannabis sativa.
Dedicated Cannabinoid Potency Testing Using the Agilent 1220 Infinity II LC System
CBG is a non-physcoactive cannabinoid. Early results suggest it plays a role in fighting glaucoma symptoms, inflamed bowels and potentially as treatment for bacterial infections like MRSA.
CBDV has been a relatively ignored cannabinoid until recently where many researchers believe that it may offer another option for the treatment of epilepsy.

Tetrahydrocannabinolic Acid (THCA)
THCA is the most prominent compound in fresh, undried cannabis. While the compound does not have psychoactive effects in its own right, it does have anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective effects.
The group of various chemical compounds analyzed with a Gas Chromatograph from the cannabis plant are called Cannabinoids. These act on the receptors situated on cells which repress the release of certain neurotransmitters in the brain. Diverse strains of the plant offer different levels of cannabinoids. In nature, cannabinoids are created in the sticky resinous structures known as glandular trichomes. A single trichome gland can include a variety of cannabinoids, and research has shown that these cannabinoids work together to create their medical benefits.
THCV is commonly believed to be an appetite suppressant. In addition, recent research suggests that this compound may be helpful in treating metabolic disorders including diabetes.
Analytical Instrument Management offers quality custom configured, refurbished Agilent and HP Gas and Liquid Chromatography Systems for Cannabinoid Analysis. All of our systems are completely refurbished, rigorously tested and guaranteed to meet manufactures specifications. Our customers are supplied with a comprehensive data report detailing the instrument performance prior to shipping.
Many of the medical benefits attributed to cannabis are because of CBD. Many strains are selectively bred to increase their CBD content. CBD is not psychoactive.
