NotesSample Preparation:
Sample: Up to 2 g of finely ground cannabis in a 50 mL polypropylene centrifuge tube.

Extraction: Add 10 mL acetonitrile and 10 mL of organic-free water, then shake thoroughly. Soak 1 hour, then aggressively vortex 30 minutes. Add Q-sep packet (cat.# 26235), shake 1 minute, then centrifuge 5 minutes at 3,000 g with Q-sep 3000 centrifuge (cat.# 26230).

NOTE: See GC_FF1208 and GC_FF1209 to zoom in on terpenes and cannabinoids regions.
