Cannabinoids are naturally occurring compounds generated within the cannabis plant. There are over 100 known cannabinoids, and these chemical compounds are concentrated mainly in the flower of the plant.  Every cannabis strain has a unique combination of cannabinoids and knowing the cannabinoid profile of a given sample guides consumer buying decisions. Smithers determines up to 14 different cannabinoids and quantifies the concentration of each using High Performance Liquid Chromatography with Photodiode Array detection (HPLC-PDA). 

We analyze the following cannabinoids:

Psychoactive Cannabinoids

  • Tetrahydrocannabinolic Acid (THCA)
  • Delta-9 Tetrahydrocannabinol (D9-THC)
  • Delta-8 Tetrahydrocannabinol (D8-THC)
  • Tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV)
  • Cannabinol (CBN)

Non-Psychoactive Cannabinoids

  • Cannabidiol (CBD)
  • Cannabidiolic Acid (CBDA)
  • Cannabigerol (CBG)
  • Cannabigerolic Acid (CBGA)
  • Cannabichromene (CBC)
  • Cannabichromic Acid (CBCA)
  • Cannabidvarin (CBDV)
  • Cannabidvarin Acid (CBDVA)
  • Tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCVA)
