Method Description

The Determination of Pesticides and Mycotoxins in Cannabis and Cannabis-Infused Products by Liquid Chromatography-Tandem Mass Spectrometry (LC-TQ) involves a comprehensive approach. QuEChERS efficiently extracts pesticides and mycotoxins from cannabis samples, minimizing matrix interference. The extracted compounds are then separated and quantified using LC-TQ, ensuring accurate analysis. This method is crucial for quality control in the cannabis industry, offering a reliable means to detect potentially harmful contaminants, meeting regulatory standards, and ensuring the safety of cannabis and cannabis-infused products for consumers. The combination of QuEChERS and LC-TQ enhances sensitivity and specificity, making it an essential tool in cannabis testing and compliance.

Additional Information
If an incurred residue is detected, it must be validated prior to being reported as a verified residue. A non-verified residue is a presumed detection or estimated concentration. The concentration reported could change with further validation work. Validation of a non-verified residue can be requested within 30 days from the time the residue is reported. Validation testing has a cost of $213 for up to five analytes. Samples will be reported as follows: see chart
