Method Description

The Determination of Terpenes by Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS) involves the separation and identification of terpenes in a sample. The method employs a combination of gas chromatography for separation and mass spectrometry for detection. Terpenes are volatile compounds responsible for the aroma and flavor of many plants, including cannabis. GC-MS provides high sensitivity and specificity, allowing for precise quantification of terpene profiles in various samples. Widely used in the cannabis and essential oil industries, this method aids in quality control, product development, and ensuring compliance with desired terpene profiles for consumer satisfaction.
