Quick and Real-Time Determination of Potency in Cannabis Extracts using FTIR Spectroscopy

Cannabis products that are currently on the market consist of either dry material such as flower buds, concentrates such as shatter, budder, waxes, oils, extracts, and distillates, or infused products such as food and candies. The main active ingredients in these products are chemical compounds called cannabinoids, which provide either a medicinal or recreational effect to consumers. Of the many different cannabinoids that have been isolated from cannabis plants, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA), cannabidiol (CBD), and cannabidiolic acid (CBDA) compounds are generally those of greatest interest and the most prevalent found in commercial cannabis plants.
