Measurement of cannabis/terpenoid profiles of medicinal cannabis chemotypes

Project Summary

The effectiveness of medical cannabis in treating a variety of medical conditions is well documented, but its use poses challenges. The medicinal qualities of cannabis are thought to depend on a suite of complex chemicals, the relative ratios of which are strain specific. Samples from various medical cannabis strains will be analyzed to determine the specific chemical profile. The resulting chemical profile information will be used to help caregivers identify medically desirable strains, and help medical professionals align strain information to a treatment recommendation.
