Cannabinoid Potency

Cannabinoid Potency

We can help you determine the true cannabinoid profile
in your products.

The cannabinoid potency profile can vary widely depending on Cannabis salvia variety, and it is this profile that will determine the value of the product. When dealing with Hemp and CBD products made for hemp extracts, it is paramount to know your product’s profile to ensure that it is legal to be placed into the stream of commerce. Federally, hemp and CBD products must contain less than 0.3% THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol), however not every state CBD/Hemp Farm bill are the same. For example, Ohio law references total THC, which includes the addition of a percentage of THC-A (Tetrahydrocannabinolic acid). THC-A will slowly convert to THC in the body, producing a psychoactive effect. The calculation for Ohio that includes this additional analyte is THCTotal = THC + (0.86 X THC-A). Thus, some hemp products that are determined to be federally legal, may be considered illegal in a particular state, classified as marijuana, and require destruction. Additionally, California added THC to the Proposition 65 (Prop 65) list, and in early 2021 any product containing THC would be required to include a cancer warning. All CBD products made with a hemp extract and hemp itself would most likely be required to have this Prop 65 warning. A product produced from the Cannabis plant will have some level of THC depending on the detection method that is used–some instrumentation and methods are much more sensitive–however, we at One Bond Laboratories will be able to help you determine the true Cannabinoid profile within your products to meet your needs. Furthermore, if you request, we can go beyond simply handing you the analytical data–we can assist in your risk determination for your client markets.
