Recommended methods for the identification and analysis of cannabis and cannabis products


The present manual has been designed to provide practical guidance to drug analysts by describing recommended methods for use by national drug analysis laboratories for the identification of cannabis and cannabis products. It is an updated and significantly revised version of the earlier manual (ST/NAR/8), and has been prepared taking into account both developments in analytical technology and advances in the science of cannabis, and with a view to providing the analytical basis for an objective discussion about changes in THC content over time, and differences between regions and products.
