  • On-site analysis of cannabis potency using Infrared spectroscopy

    Cannabis is increasingly being recognised for its therapeutic value. This has led to a reduction in its regulation, and even its legalisation, by many different governments. As cannabis production becomes legalised and regulated it is important that manufacturers can assess the chemical content and potency of their plants. The value of cannabis in the control of pain, spasm and a range of ...

  • The `Super Moon` and astral FTIR

    Tonight the Moon will appear 7% larger than normal and about 15% brighter. This is because the Moon will be the closest to Earth it has ever been since 1948 and won’t be this close again until 2034. As the Moon naturally varies its distance from the Earth throughout its elliptical orbit, other minor deviations in our planet’s movement around the Sun cause further changes in its ...
