Terpenoid Profile

Green Scientific Lab tests hydrocarbon (terpenes) content, because we understand that every cannabis strain has a unique fingerprint, which should match every consumer’s individual medical needs. With over hundreds of types being identified, each strain has its own distinctive flavor (citrus, mint, berry, spicy, woody, etc), but we know that the benefits go far beyond taste. In fact, certain strains are associated with stress relief, easing pain, aiding sleep, improving focus, and diminishing nausea. For this reason, we use uses high-pressure liquid chromatography (HPLC) to quantify cannabinoids, and gas chromatography with flame ionized detection (GC-FID), and mass spectrometry (GCMS) to separate and quantify nearly 40 commonly found terpenes in cannabis.
