Abstract: As medical cannabis is more frequently prescribed, patient safety must be ensured. Pesticide residue testing is an important part of assuring safe product is dispensed, but analysis can be extremely challenging due to matrix complexity. The use of QuEChERS, cartridge SPE cleanup, and GCxGC-TOFMS as presented here produces high-quality quantitative data for this difficult analysis.
