Overcoming Analytical Challenges for Mandatory Testing of Pesticides in Cannabis Products to Comply with Health Canada Guidance

The legalization of medical and recreational cannabis products across Canada and many US states has led to an increased demand for safe cannabis products. Health Canada has set stringent regulations for testing pesticides in cannabis products, both in terms of the number of pesticides required to be analyzed and the relatively low limits of quantification that must be achieved.

To fulfill these mandatory testing requirements, we need quantitative and confirmatory methods that can provide reliable coverage and robust performance for the entire list of pesticides.

Although most of the target pesticides are amenable to LC-MS/MS analysis, selected pesticides require much lower detection limits that can be achieved using GC-MS/MS methods. We will discuss how these complementary techniques and the benefits of atmospheric pressure GC (APGC-MS/MS) can be used to provide a suitable determination of all pesticides currently regulated by Health Canada at the recommended limits of quantitation.


By attending this webinar, you will:

  • Understand the value of LC-MS/MS and GC-MS/MS for comprehensive pesticide screening in cannabis
  • Gain insight into regulatory requirements for cannabis testing labs to ensure safety and quality of cannabis-derived products
  • Learn how to leverage the benefits of turnkey solutions to help regulated labs consistently deliver accurate results
