Liquid chromatography is central to a broad cross-section of cannabis testing applications. It has been used to help characterize the 100+ cannabinoids extracted from the cannabis plant, demonstrating radically different pharmacological mechanisms of action from one to the next.
Liquid Chromatography for the Quality Control of Cannabis Products
Analytical HPLC is implemented in numerous ways to help professionals on all sides of the cannabis market in legitimacy. To ensure a safe product of highest quality, several tests should be carried out. They include cannabinoid profiling, potency testing via quantification of THC (presence/absence of THC), determination of naturally occurring contaminants like mycotoxins and determination of artificial contaminants like pesticides. Which regulations apply for a user depends on the market the product is intended for.
Liquid Chromatography for Cannabinoid purification
Whenever highly pure cannabinoids should be produced from Cannabis plants or raw extracts, preparative chromatography is the method of choice. We have developed a preparative HPLC system for the purification of single cannabinoids from extracts of cannabis flos or cannabinoid oil.
Liquid Chromatography for Cannabinoid production
If a batch process is implemented or a continuous process using simulated moving bed chromatography (SMB) is more effectful always depends on the specific customer´s needs. KNAUER has extensive experiences in customized solutions for both types of applications for the cannabis industry.
HPLC system for the quick and easy determination of 16 cannabinoids in 20 minutes.
Preparative HPLC system for the purification of single cannabinoids from extracts of cannabis flos or cannabinoid oil.
Simulated moving bed (SMB) chromatography sets the benchmark for productivity, purity and yield in the continuous production of cannabinoids.
KNAUER's simulated moving bed (SMB) chromatography systems can be used for the continous purification of cannabinoids such as Cannabidiol (CBD) or Cannabigerol (CBG).
KNAUER worked alongside Dr. Simona Felletti, an expert in the field of HPLC and cannabinoids from the University of Ferrara, to develop SMB methodologies for the continuous purification of cannabinoids.
This video shows such a purification process - from cannabis plant to pure CBG - involving the extraction of cannabinoids from cannabis plant matter, followed by purification via SMB chromatography, then lastly HPLC analysis to confirm the purity of the final product.
Such purification methodologies can be used at scale to produce pure cannabinoids from cannabis or hemp plant material.

How can liquid chromatography support cannabis testing applications? Liquid chromatography is implemented in numerous ways to help professionals on either side of the cannabis market’s gulf in legitimacy.
Analytical HPLC is often used in cannabis analysis to detect and quantify different cannabinoids. Find out which advantages HPLC offers for quality control and potency testing.
Preparative HPLC is proving instrumental to the extraction and purification process, assisting in the production of extremely high quality, pure CBD extracts.
SMB systems have increasingly been explored as a potential solution to the problem of cost-effective purification of cannabinoids at larger scales.
Quality controls and potency tests are important to ensure the highest quality of the product. Mycotoxins or pesticides can contaminate cannabis products.
