Cerilliant, Round Rock, Tex, has introduced new solution-based certified reference materials (CRMs) for seven cannabis biomarkers, including cannabidivarin, cannabigerol, cannabigerolic acid, cannabichromene, cannabidiolic acid, delta9-tetrahydrocannabinolic acid A, and tetrahydrocannabivarin. These cannabinoid CRMs are suitable for use in cannabis testing applications by gas chromatography, gas chromatography-mass spectrometry, high-performance liquid chromatography, or liquid chromatography–tandem mass spectrometry, including potency testing, cannabinoid and impurity profiling, pharmaceutical research, or forensic analysis.

The pharmacological and regulatory complexities involving cannabis necessitate analytical testing of quality and potency to guarantee consumer safety in regions where its sale is legal for medicinal use. Cerilliant provides these and other certified solution standards of cannabinoids in a United States Drug Enforcement Agency- and Health Canada-exempt solution format, allowing laboratories to place orders without additional regulatory paperwork.
