  • 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 ...
