General description

The Certified Spiking Solution® is suitable for cannabinol testing by HPLC, GC/MS or LC-MS/MS methods in forensic analysis, clinical toxicology, urine drug testing, and Cannabis potency or impurity profiling testing applications.

Cannabinol is a phytocannabinoid that belongs to the class of C21 terpenophenolic compounds. Found in the cannabis plant it is a metabolite of Δ9-THC, the main psychoactive component of cannabis. Cannabinol is also the primary product of THC degradation from exposure to air and light.


The Certified Reference Material (CRM) in solution can also be used as follows:
  • Estimation of four cannabinoids from an oil matrix using reversed-phase high-performance liquid chromatography (RP-HPLC) combined with a diode array detector (DAD)
  • Simultaneous analysis of 11 cannabinoids in biomass and extracts of different cannabis varieties by an HPLC-UV method, following the International Conference on Harmonization (ICH) Tripartite Guideline for Validation of Analytical Procedures
  • Determination of eight cannabinoids in eight hemp samples and 12 forensic cannabis samples using reversed phase-high-pressure liquid chromatography (RP-HPLC) in combination with UV detector
  • Analysis of dried marijuana flowers to measure the amount of nine cannabinoids by high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) along with UV detection
  • Development and validation of an ultra high-performance liquid chromatographic (UHPLC) method coupled to photodiode array and mass spectrometry detectors to determine 11 cannabinoids in various Cannabis Sativa samples
  • Quantitative analysis of 17 cannabinoids in cannabis and hemp samples by LC-MS/MS following their liquid-solid extraction following AOAC and ASTM guidelines for cannabis and hemp matrices

Between 2000 and 2005 the average percentage of Δ(9) -tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) in marijuana as sold in Dutch coffeeshops has increased substantially; the potency of domestic products (Nederwiet and Nederhasj) has particularly increased. In contrast with imported marijuana, Nederwiet hardly contained
