Terpene Profiling

Terpene Profiling

 

There are over 700 different strains of the Cannabis plant and that number increases each year as growers crossbreed and modify original varieties. Different strains of Cannabis have a wide variety of characteristic smells and tastes associated with them. Lime Analytical Labs utilizes Headspace gas chromatography coupled with mass spectrometry (GC-MS) to quantify 39 terpenes commonly found in Cannabis strains. Combining the terpene profile with the cannabinoid profile can provide a detailed chemical fingerprint of a strain.
