Cannabis strains with high levels of cannabidiol (CBD) typically have higher levels of cannabidivarin (CBDV) as well, but accurate quantitation of both compounds for potency and strain ID is a must, especially as interest in using CBDV as an anticonvulsant and anti-nausea treatment continues to rise. Restek now offers a stand-alone CBDV reference standard, in addition to CBD and a host of other compounds, to help labs with the comprehensive analysis of cannabis products.
Restek's CBDV standard is ideal for creating multipoint (5-point minimum suggested) calibration curves for LC-MS/MS. With verified composition and stability, this prepared stock product eliminates the need for in-house standards preparation for greater convenience and lower labour requirements.
As a U.S. DEA-exempted formulation, no additional customer permits or licensing are required to purchase within the U.S., and because it's manufactured and QC tested in the firm's ISO-accredited labs, this new CBDV standard qualifies as a certified reference material (CRM) that satisfies ISO requirements.
