Residual Solvent Testing

Residual Solvent Testing : Canada

Cannabis concentrate products, such as extracts, tinctures, edibles, waxes, and oils are the most common products of cannabis that are used for both medicinal and recreational purposes. These concentrates are extracted using a solvent such as supercritical CO2 , butane, propane, other hydrocarbons, water, or alcohol results in some of the solvent remain in the extracted material. These are called residual solvents. In some cases, these impurities can be toxic, which is why residual solvent analysis is a critical element of cannabis testing.

We validated an internal method to using headspace (HS) gas chromatography (GC) coupled with mass spectrometry (MS) detection to detect the following residual solvents in cannabis concentrate:
