Determination of Pesticides Residues and Cannabis Potency in Marijuana and Cannabis Foods

XIAOYAN WANG AND BRIAN KINSELLA 

This poster utilizes the advantages of the QuEChERS (acronym for Quick, Easy, Cheap, Effective, Rugged, and Safe) to extract 35 pesticides and 3 cannabinoids, including tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), cannabidiol (CBD), and cannabinol (CBN), in edibles and seized marijuana, followed by either serial dilutions for cannabis potency analysis, or a dispersive solid phase extraction (dSPE) cleanup for pesticide residue analysis.
