Refurbished Cannabis Potency Testing Systems
Completely refurbished and custom configured analyzers for Cannabis Potency testing. Cannabis Potency testing is the process of quantifying the total cannabinoid content of cannabis samples, such as THC potency levels and other cannabinoids such as CBD and CBN. AIM provides refurbished turn key systems to help you analyze cannabis potency at a price that is affordable. All of our systems are completely refurbished, tested and include a warranty.
Understanding Cannabinoids and Cannabis Potency Testing
The group of various chemical compounds analyzed with a Gas Chromatograph from the cannabis plant are called Cannabinoids. These act on the receptors situated on cells which repress the release of certain neurotransmitters in the brain. Diverse strains of the plant offer different levels of cannabinoids. In nature, cannabinoids are created in the sticky resinous structures known as glandular trichomes. A single trichome gland can include a variety of cannabinoids, and research has shown that these cannabinoids work together to create their medical benefits.
Analytical Instrument Management offers quality custom configured, refurbished Agilent and HP Gas and Liquid Chromatography Systems for Cannabinoid Analysis. All of our systems are completely refurbished, rigorously tested and guaranteed to meet manufactures specifications. Our customers are supplied with a comprehensive data report detailing the instrument performance prior to shipping.
Agilent GC and HPLC systems are known for their reliability, ruggedness, and long life. The Agilent GC and HPLC are a state-of-the art chromatographs that provides superior performance for all applications. Key to its performance is the use of advanced electronic pneumatic control (EPC) modules and high performance temperature control. Each EPC unit is optimized for its intended use with a specific inlet and detector option. Temperature control of the GC oven allows for fast and precise temperature ramping. Overall thermal performance provides optimal chromatography including peak symmetry, retention time repeatability, and retention index accuracy. The combination of precise pneumatic control and accurate temperature control leads to outstanding retention time repeatability, the basis for all chromatographic measurement.
THC is the best-known cannabinoid and is the primary psychoactive compound. It has also been found to be neuroprotective with analgesic (pain relieving) effects.
CBN is also non-psychoactive and is generally attributed with a sedative effect. The typical amount of CBN found in most samples of cannabis is less than 1%.
THCV is commonly believed to be an appetite suppressant. In addition, recent research suggests that this compound may be helpful in treating metabolic disorders including diabetes.
CBC is perhaps the least understood cannabinoid, but potentially among the most important. It is believed to stimulate bone growth, as well has inhibit inflammation and pain.
CBDV has been a relatively ignored cannabinoid until recently where many researchers believe that it may offer another option for the treatment of epilepsy.
Many of the medical benefits attributed to cannabis are because of CBD. Many strains are selectively bred to increase their CBD content. CBD is not psychoactive.
Tetrahydrocannabinolic Acid (THCA)
THCA is the most prominent compound in fresh, undried cannabis. While the compound does not have psychoactive effects in its own right, it does have anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective effects.
CBG is a non-physcoactive cannabinoid. Early results suggest it plays a role in fighting glaucoma symptoms, inflamed bowels and potentially as treatment for bacterial infections like MRSA.
Cannabidiolic Acid (CBDA)
CBDA is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid believed to have anti-inflammatory properties. The compound is also thought offer benefits when dealing with nausea and vomiting.
