THC testing Kit

THC Marijuana Test Kits

Marijuana or cannabis is widely used in many industries and byindividuals as well. Now that some states in the USA has made Marijuana legal the usage of the plant and the subsequent recreational drug use has gone up. Cannabinoids are the compound found in the marijuana or the cannabis. There are more than 80 types of Cannabinoids found in marijuana and each type reacts differently. The most common type of Cannabinoidsis the tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).

The tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is used for various purposes ranging from appetite stimulant to Antioxidant to drugs. Anyone who has knowledge about the marijuana plant knows that the potency can vary. The potency of the Marijuana is very important for getting the desired effect. Especially, for people who are using the cannabis for medical reasons need to be sure that potency of the drug they are using is up to the mark.

One of the best ways to determine the quality or the potency of the drug is through an easy to use testing kit. THC Testing Kits by TLC Lab Supply provides highly effective and easy to use marijuana testing kits for a wide range of industries and individuals. You can check the potency of your marijuana and cannabis products for the THC, CBD, CBN, CBG, levelswith this kit right at home or your workplace.

How the Kits Works

TLC is a simple, quick, and inexpensive procedure that gives a quick answer as to how many components are in a mixture. TLC is also used to support the identity of a compound in a mixture when the Rf of a compound is compared with the Rf from the literature, In our case the cannabinoids can be identified by their specific color and specific location (Rf value) and order of appearance on the TLC plate, if carried out with the solvent system from the Kit.

A TLC plate is a sheet of glass which is coated with a thin layer of a solid adsorbent, silica. A small amount of the mixture to be analyzed is spotted near the bottom of this plate. The TLC plate is then placed in a shallow pool of a solvent in a developing chamber so that only the very bottom of the plate is in the liquid. This liquid, or eluent or carrier fluid, is the mobile phase, and it slowly rises up the TLC plate by capillary action.

As the solvent moves, it will pass the little spot of cannabinoid-oil micro-droplet of 2 ul or 4 ul that was applied to the bottom of the plate. An equilibrium is established for each component of the mixture between the molecules of that component which are absorbed on the solid and the molecules which are in solution. In principle, the components will differ in solubility and in the strength of their adsorption to the adsorbent and the other components will be carried farther up to the plate than the others. When the solvent has reached the top of the plate, the plate is removed from the developing chamber, dried (ventilation!). After drying, the separated components (cannabinoids) now separated in the silica plates, will be visualized by spraying the plate with a dye. The dye is highly specific for cannabinoids. Every principal cannabinoid will display his own color! THC: wine red, CBD: bright yellow, CBG: orange, CBN: violet etc..

If the substance has more than 1% of THC or any cannabinoid in it then it will show in the plates.

Who can Use it

Cannabis Testing is required in all 50 states -The Real Story

Testing THC, CBD and more in Marijuana: The straight facts

Currently there are 3 major mainstream ways of testing marijuana – (GC) Gas Chromatography, (HPLC) High Performance Liquid Chromatography and TLC or HPTLC) – High Protocol Thin Layer Chromatography. Here are some real facts from an independent study done to determine the value of each one of these testing procedures.

Comparison of these 3 types of testing, all using some sort of Chromatography testing, gives a person or company a better look at how each work since these methods have been determined the best way of testing cannabinoids (cannabinoids are substances present in marijuana which give the herb its distinct characteristics). They all use Chromatography which has been around for years and is taught in many colleges currently and used by most governments around the world for testing drugs for years. TLC (Thin Layer Chromatography) has been used long before GC or HPLC machines were even thought of. TLC is used for all types of testing of foods fertilizers, soils and many other organic materials.

Our post on 3 lab testing has a lot of information on how all these testing procedures work and what will work the best for you.

Whether you want to know what you are purchasing or growing or a small or large company making products it all needs to be tested. That is a worldwide requirement. You will be surprised by the results of this study and also learn a little more then you knew before.

Whether you are a cannabis grower or a medical user, our TLC kits are for you. If you are making products for the cannabis industry for CBD or other medicines to high THC plant material or recreational products like dabs or shatters, our TLC test kits will work for you. Any product with more than 1% cannabinoid in it will show up on our TLC plates. Take a look at the study.

Basics That You Should Know About Marijuana Testing

At a time when medical marijuana is getting accepted in our society, it is fair to know the compounds which make up this unique plant. Marijuana or cannabis  as it is known is one of the most talked about plant substances of our times. From fighting to legalize it to getting it available on the shelf of your neighborhood store, there have been several conversations about it. In the end, it is all about the consumption and the medical benefits marijuana hides. We are TLC Lab Supply  and we sell TLC ( Thin Layer Chromatography testing kits for THC, and CBD testing and  are dedicated to providing you an affordable yet accurate marijuana CBD testing kit. So, what is it all about?

Marijuana CBD testing is an important step in knowing about the cannabinoids that will be used for the medical marijuana products.

What is CBD?

When we talk about cannabis, we should understand the compounds from which make it a unique plant. Cannabinoids are compounds which give cannabis plant its qualities. Though there are more than 70 cannabinoids present in marijuana, 2 of the most popular ones are THC and CBD. THC is the cannabinoid responsible for giving you the “happy high”. CBD, the second well-known cannabinoid is the one which has the most medicinal qualities. CBD or cannabidiol, with all its medical benefits, doesn’t offer a psychotropic effect. In fact, it lessens the effect of THC in the plant, as one   is more the other becomes less in  plant material. For patients, looking for a relief from health issues like inflammation, pain, anxiety, seizures, psychosis, and many more, CBD is the cannabinoid of choice.

What are the test methods?

There are 3 commonly used methods for marijuana CBD testing – GC, HPLC, HPTLC. Out of the three, HPLC or High-Pressure Liquid Chromatography is the most popular lab test. The other methods Gas Chromatography and High Performing Thin Layer Chromatography are closely followed by. Though, at the root, three of them are almost similar owing to the use of silica to separate the cannabinoids from one another, there is a distinctive characteristic of each of the method that makes them unique. GC and HPLC are lab methods and hence, on the exorbitant side. HPTLC, however, is a method of marijuana CBD testing that works well at an affordable cost. Our test kits are based on HPTLC and are a practical for everyone starting from the breeders to the medicine manufacturers.

Since the consumption of medical marijuana is gaining traction and rightfully so, we should make it a point to get all  products tested. Marijuana CBD testing will help breeders and  medicine manufacturers know the quantity of CBD present in the strain. This will result in a better more accurate medicine production.

Our marijuana testing kits are a world wide approved product that helps everyone associated with medical marijuana. Get in touch with us to know more.

HIGH TIMES ARTICLE MAY 2017

The High Times is one of the most reputed magazines regarding marijuana. Founded in 1974 by Tom Forçade, the magazine has been giving out fantastic information on marijuana usage and counterculture. It was an absolute honor when they tried our THC test kit and reviewed it. This page enlists some key points from the article they posted about us.

The writer of the article A.J. Herrington starts off saying about the potency variation in various cannabis strains. Then, he goes on to explain the importance of potency when it comes to medical marijuana. Unless you have the access to authorized cannabis from an MMJ dispensary, it might be tough to get tested marijuana products for use. In case weed is legal in your state, you can go up to the commercial lab to get the cannabis tested. However, he writes, “But lab tests can be costly, running about $40 or more for each potency analysis.” This is the issue at hand and our test kits can serve as a solution to it. The purpose, according to the writer, for the testing of our kits was, “My goal was to compare the results I obtained from the home testing options for THC and CBD potency, with the lab results provided by PharmLabs, to see if they were consistent. “ PharmLabs is a San Diego cannabis testing facility whose test results were considered as a reference point in this case.

We are glad that The High Times went the distance to write about the usage and results obtained by using our test kit. Have a look at what the writer says about the kits. Here’s an excerpt from the write-up:

Our kits are available for $160 and can be used to test up to 25 samples. Though the writer of The High Times article tested flower, you can use any product to test. In fact, our TLC based kit is one of the best for testing edibles.

We are glad that High Times got in touch with us and tried out our testing option. Connect with the magazine to stay updated about marijuana or cannabis news from all over.

A qualitative and quantitative HPTLC densitometry method for the analysis of cannabinoids in Cannabis sativa


Abstract

INTRODUCTION
Cannabis and cannabinoid based medicines are currently under serious investigation for legitimate development as medicinal agents, necessitating new low-cost, high-throughput analytical methods for quality control.

OBJECTIVE
The goal of this study was to develop and validate, according to ICH guidelines, a simple rapid HPTLC method for the quantification of Delta(9)-tetrahydrocannabinol (Delta(9)-THC) and qualitative analysis of other main neutral cannabinoids found in cannabis.

METHODOLOGY

The method was developed and validated with the use of pure cannabinoid reference standards and two medicinal cannabis cultivars. Accuracy was determined by comparing results obtained from the HTPLC method with those obtained from a validated HPLC method.

RESULTS
Delta(9)-THC gives linear calibration curves in the range of 50-500 ng at 206 nm with a linear regression of y = 11.858x + 125.99 and r(2) = 0.9968.

CONCLUSION
Results have shown that the HPTLC method is reproducible and accurate for the quantification of Delta(9)-THC in cannabis. The method is also useful for the qualitative screening of the main neutral cannabinoids found in cannabis cultivars.

Highest High: How Potent is Your Pot?

For obvious reasons we can’t list the Cannalytics Cannabis Fingerprint and THC Test Kit as the Bad Ass Toy of the Week: It’s not a toy.

In fact, this home chemistry kit is 100 percent legit. Alpha Nova Diagnostics, a World Health Organization compliant company, is a Dutch chemical and biochemical lab that produces home test kits for pesticides, heavy metals, and oh, yeah, weed. The Thin-Layer Chromatography (TLC) technique the kit is based on is the same used in testing for trace amounts of organic compounds. What works to figure out the makeup of your fertilizer, also works to figure out the cannabinoid composition of your chronic.
Not to harsh your buzz, but here’s why this test is such a big deal for bong-lovers: due to the Schedule 1 Controlled Substance classification of marijuana, few labs in the U.S. will test weed for potency, unless the DEA approves. Of course the police will happily test your maryjane, but chances are you’re not getting it back. You are guaranteed one phone call though.

The lack of testing means that no one can say for sure how potent pot is. The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) regularly reports on the tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) concentration in marijuana, but the stash tested is what law enforcement officials have confiscated, and the range in reefer quality and THC percentages is pretty large. Some of the sticky rates THC concentration in the high 30s, but some rates 0. It averages out to 4.53 percent, but all this really means is that while there is some seriously potent pot on the streets, there’s also some buds barely registering anything.

THC levels differ according to plant, with females often having higher levels, as do more mature plants. This is because as cannabis grows, the chemical composition changes. Plant genetics, climate and harvesting procedures all will affect the chemical composition of the plant.

THC is not the only cannabinoid in cannabis. The other cannabinoids might not be as well known, but their presence affects your high. Some cannabinoids have anti-inflammatory affects, some are anti-anxiety, some induce sleep, and one even has been shown to suppress appetite. No muchies when smoking that maryjane.
Because of the lack of lab testing, even in the 15 states and the District of Columbia where the use of medical marijuana is legally permitted even those with prescriptions for pot can’t be completely sure of the THC levels in the weed they’re buying. And as you know if you buy off the street what you get depends on who you’re buying from.
The Cannalytics test kit can identify the type and consistency of cannabinoids, which means you’ll know what’s in the pot you’ve purchased, and what kind of high to expect. Sure, it means you have to be a bit Mr. Science about your stash, but isn’t it worth it to know what you’re smoking?
