Analyzing cannabis flowers according to the German Pharmacopeia - monograph 2018

Since the change in German narcotics law in 2017 (§1 Abs. 1, Betäubungsmittelgesetz; BtMG) the need for reliable and robust HPLC methods for quality control has drastically increased. Six common cannabinoids of high medicinal interest Cannabidiol (CBD), Cannabidiolic acid (CBDA), Cannabinol (CBN), Δ8-Tetrahydrocannabinol (Δ8-THC), Δ9-Tetrahydrocannabinol (Δ9-THC) and Δ9-Tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (Δ9-THCA) were quantified on the KNAUER AZURA® HPLC plus system according to the monograph of German Pharmacopeia 2018 (Deutsches Arzneibuch; DAB). The method was verified using an authorized medicinal cannabis flower available on the market. The assignment of the analytes was made with chemical reference standards.
