Presented by Cayman. Moderator: Kirsten Blake Presenter: Jeffrey B. Williams
Plant varieties of Cannabis are known to contain a large number of structurally unique bioactive chemicals known as phytocannabinoids. While the methods for isolation can deliver high quality products, isomerization or oxidative by-products may form during processing resulting in degradation of product purity. Identifying these unknown impurities is a crucial step for process improvements to obtain cannabis isolates.
Presented by Purisys. Moderator: Kirsten Blake Presenter: Amit Patel
In the webinar, Purisys reviewed different types of reference standards and how they are qualified. We looked at advantages and disadvantages of solids versus low concentration solutions for use as reference standards in analytical testing of cannabinoids. We also discuss benefits and challenges of manufacturing cannabinoids reference standards synthetically.

with Leigh White, CEO, Emerald Scientific
Starting a new cannabis testing lab? Expanding or updating an existing lab?
Finding capital equipment financing can be challenging and time-consuming. And reasonable rates for borrowers in the cannabis industry have been scarce. Here at Emerald Scientific, we understand these challenges and are dedicated to finding solutions that we’ll share with you in this webinar. We’ll demystify the financing process, talk about how we work with financing partners, and tell you about the experience of our customers.
with Shianna Hines, Senior Field Application Scientist, PerkinElmer
Learn about the many obstacles to overcome when analyzing Heavy Metals in Cannabis by ICP-MS. Laboratories often have difficulties analyzing cannabis and hemp products due to the variety and variance of complex product matrices and from the industry’s vast expansion into all spectrums of consumer goods. In this webinar, Shianna will discuss how your laboratory can overcome these obstacles while also being on the cutting edge of Cannabis Testing for Heavy Metals.

with Candice Warren, Analytical Chemist and Quality Manager, and Melissa Stonier, Analytical Chemist and PT coordinator, Absolute Standards
This webinar will discuss the numerous cannabis proficiency test samples offered by Absolute Standards through Emerald Scientific. Topics of this presentation will be ISO/IEC accreditation, PT design, corresponding calibrations, and PT reporting; concluding with a brief discussion on the upcoming fall round of the 2020 Emerald Test.
with Eli Aliaga, Analytical & Formulation Chemist, and Giovanni Esposito, Inorganic Formulations Chemist, Absolute Standards
In this 30 minute webinar we will discuss the various cannabis certified reference materials (CRMs) and their matrices offered by Absolute Standards through Emerald Scientific. The focal point will be on gummy, hemp flower, hemp oil, hard candy, cosmetic cold cream, chocolate, coconut oil, and beverage matrices. Different approaches towards product development, production, extraction, and analysis of these CRMs will also be discussed.
with Sarah M. Aijaz, Ph.D., Senior Analytical Chemist at Cerilliant Corporation, MilliporeSigma
Your results are only as accurate as your reference material. But what separates a reference material from ubiquitous high-purity research chemicals? How does this affect the quality of your analytical results? This webinar will provide an introduction to reference materials and review those available for cannabis testing so you can ensure you are starting with the ideal foundation for a safe and properly labeled final product.
with Hillel Brandes, Ph.D., Analytical Technology Specialist at MilliporeSigma
In this webinar, we will explore major parameters that affect chromatographic resolution of cannabinoids, and review examples along the way. Parameters we will explore include buffer, buffer concentration, pH, temperature, and choice of solvent systems. This quick webinar will provide you with a basis to hone in an optimized method based on your specific goals for potency testing.

With Patricia Atkins, R&D and New Products Chemist
Pesticides are now a daily part of our world, from the anti-bacterial soaps we use to the commercial pesticides that are applied to our food. Over the past fifty years, the number of commercially available pesticide formulations has grown from a few dozen to thousands of preparations.
This technical tip will look at the development of modern pesticides and how those pesticides are applied, regulated and analyzed. While some of these pesticides are easily screened by using conventional and traditional methods of analysis, some pesticides, however, can be more challenging. We will discuss some of the most popular pesticides in use and the challenges some modern pesticides being used today in the cannabis industry.
