NotesGummies were manually chopped into small pieces, and 1 g of sample was weighed in a 50 mL polypropylene tube. The sample was mixed with 5 mL of water and then vigorously vortexed until all gummy pieces were fully solubilized. The sample was fortified with cannabinoids at 0.2 mg/g. The spiked sample was further vortexed for 30 sec. 5 mL of acetonitrile acidified with 1% acetic acid was added to the sample, and this was followed by 30 sec vortex agitation. Then, a pouch of European EN 15662 QuEChERS extraction salts (cat.# 25849) was added to the sample. The sample was vortexed for 30 sec and then centrifuged for 5 min. 100 µL of organic extract was mixed with 900 µL of 75:25 acetonitrile:water. 2 µL of final extract was injected into the HPLC-UV system.
