This course focuses on the quality control and analytical testing requirements for Cannabis products. High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) is an analytical technique for separating organic compounds in order to analyze their properties. Modern HPLC are applied in quality control (QC) and research and development (R&D) to separate, identify, purify and quantify compounds. In the cannabis industry, HPLC is the primary instrument to determine %THC, %THCA, %CBD and %CBDA.

AAPS was granted a R&D licence from Health Canada in 2020 allowing students to work directly with cannabis and helps prepare students by providing hands-on practical skills necessary to perform HPLC analysis.

This course focuses on the quality control and analytical testing requirements for Cannabis products. Various laboratory techniques such as wet chemistry, HPLC and microbiology are taught and practiced in the laboratory. Concepts such as quality control, certificate of analysis (CofA), product specification, and good laboratory practices and reporting requirements are discussed in depth.
