The CBD Data Management Challenge

As every batch of cannabis requires a multitude of tests, handling all the related data can be a challenge. Manual data recording takes time and is prone to human error. However, accurate and traceable records are essential for proving the safety and efficacy of an end product. Our free guide explains how you can improve data management practices in your lab:

CBD testing includes analysis of potency, pesticide residues, trace metals, and yeasts and molds, amongst many others (find out more about common CBD testing below). Weighing your sample is often the first step of many analytical procedures, and it may also be necessary to prepare other substances or solutions to support the CBD tests. Therefore, your balance plays a crucial role in ensuring successful quality control of medical cannabis.

METTLER TOLEDO’s Weighing Solutions

METTLER TOLEDO’s Excellence analytical and precision balances provide further data management support with error-free data transfer directly to external software. This eliminates the need for recording weighing results by hand, saving you valuable time.

LabX assists you in compliance with 21 CFR part 11.

Accurate Weighing is Important for CBD Testing

Quality Control of Medical Cannabis and Cannabidiol: Weighing Applications in the Laboratory

Cannabis sativa is a flowering plant originating from Central Asia. Today, derivatives of cannabis plants are being used to treat medical conditions such as pain and muscle spasms related to multiple sclerosis, some severe forms of epilepsy, anxiety, schizophrenia and heart problems. Cannabis contains hundreds of different compounds known as cannabinoids. One of these cannabinoids, Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), has psychoactive effects. Another cannabinoid, Cannabidiol (CBD), is not psychoactive and is used in medical applications. CBD is typically derived from cannabis varieties known as industrial hemp, which contain no more than 0.3% THC. CBD and medical cannabis products are most commonly prepared and used in the form of an oil. CBD may also be delivered by other methods such as inhalation of smoke or vapor, tinctures, gel capsules, edible products, and creams or patches applied directly on the skin.
