Terpene molecules are responsible for the scent profiles of
cannabis plants and products. They offer an indication of freshness, they
impact the consumption experience, guide consumer preference and support
With the Terpenes Module, LightLab can
analyze the richness of the sample’s terpene content without any changes in
sample preparation or hardware upgrade.
Over 100 cannabis terpenes have been identified to date and those
terpenes generally fall into two categories: monoterpenes and sesquiterpenes.
Monoterpenes comprise 80% of cannabis terpenes. LightLab can analyze and
quantify the monoterpenes present in a sample and uses that analysis to make an
assumption about the monoterpene-sesquiterpene ratio in the sample. LightLab
reports terpene content in samples as low, medium or high terpene content
offering a great first-line analysis that can help cultivators and processors
understand and value their product when terpene rich products are the end goal.
Low Terpene Range:
Medium Terpene Range: between 1% and 2%
High Terpene Range: >2%
No additional steps are required beyond the standard liquid
extraction used for LightLab cannabinoid analysis. In addition, no additional
analysis time is needed – LightLab calculates the terpene content at the same
time as cannabinoid analysis.
By their very nature, minor cannabinoids are uncommon and can be a
valuable product differentiator. These minor cannabinoids in a plant or product
can be an indication of unique genetics, an opportunity for product
differentiation and measure of plant quality.
LightLab’s Minors Module analyzes the
following five cannabinoids:
- CBC-A: Cannabichromenic
Acid. CBC-A is the acidic form of CBC. It is non-psychoactive
and is formed in some plant genetics alongside THC-A and CBD-A, typically
at lower concentration. It’s a precursor is CBG-A. Some
genetics will exhibit 1-5% CBC-A.
- CBC: Cannabichromene.
CBC is the neutral form of CBC-A. CBC is often present in hemp and
CBD containing plants, and more rarely in THC containing plants. Since
many laboratories do not yet measure CBC, the Minors Module will allow
hemp farmers, CBD growers and processors to select for higher CBC plants
and differentiate their product with a new cannabinoid.
- CBN-A: Cannabinolic
Acid. CBN-A is the acidic form of CBN. It is often formed from
aged cannabis plants. Very old plants may contain 0-5% CBNA.
CBN-A in combination with CBN are good indicators of the age and storage
conditions of plant material. Higher CBN-A and CBN typically
indicates old plant material or poorly stored plant material.
- Δ8-THC: Delta-8-Tetrahydrocannabinol. Δ8-THC
is generally made by converting CBD or Δ9-THC in a chemical reaction. Note that the process used to
often creates other cannabinoids, including Δ9-THC. When running a Δ8-THC sample, LightLab
has a higher detection limit of 4% for flower samples and 12% for
- Δ10-THC: Degraded
THC, Dihydroxy-THC. In some cases, distillation can breakdown the THC
molecule into by-products, reducing the potency of the product and
affecting the taste. Two of the major breakdown components are CBN
LightLab can measure the amount of Δ10-THC, allowing distillation operators to ensure their
product is pure and potent while maintaining high throughput. In
some cases, extraction operators will intentionally attempt to generate
novel cannabinoids through a degradation process. Δ10-THC is a precursor
to most of the degradation products generated.
HOW IT WORKS
for Cannabis. Built for Performance.
LightLab was designed to be easy-to-use and deliver lab-grade
accuracy. LightLab applies liquid chromatography which separates the
cannabinoids, spectroscopy which uses light to analyze the sample’s compounds
and linear regression mathematics to calculate sample results.
HIGH PERFORMANCE LIQUID CHROMATOGRAPHY
Your analytical laboratory likely uses High Performance Liquid
Chromatography (HPLC) to analyze your hemp or cannabis sample. Like an HPLC,
LightLab pushes an extracted cannabis sample through a column. The column
separates the cannabinoids in the sample by slowing down cannabinoids by
different amounts based on their affinity to the column. This allows each
cannabinoid to exit the column at a different time. For example, CBD may exit
the column first, then D9THC and so on. Once the column separates the cannabinoids,
they move to the next step in the analytical process: spectroscopy.
Spectroscopy uses light to measure the analytical composition of
compounds. During the analytical process the sample flows between a light
source and a detector. The detector will quantify how much light is getting
through the sample. Since every cannabinoid has a particular light absorption
signature LightLab can provide quantitative measurements. LightLab
borrows spectroscopy technology from the Curiosity
Mars Rover, providing an accurate and dependable analysis every time.
LIGHTLAB CHROMATOGRAM AND CALCULATIONS
When LightLab analyzes a sample, it separates cannabinoids over
time and detects them with UV light at several wavelengths. An HPLC works in
much of the same way, though in many cases only one wavelength of light is
utilized. In a standard HPLC, the chromatogram shows peaks that represent
different analytes; the area of the analyte is correlated with the
concentration of that analyte. While LightLab uses the chromatogram as part of
its analysis, the calculation is not a strict peak area calculation. Instead,
LightLab uses a sophisticated multi-dimensional, non-linear regression to
calculate results. This algorithm uses multiple UV wavelengths along with the
chromatogram to determine the final results. This allows for a more robust and
accurate measurement of cannabinoids even with challenging environmental
conditions and complex samples.
It has never been easier to track, share and manage your test
data. Track test progress from your mobile device, share test results, and
generate a Certificate of Analysis complete with authenticity verification
Click image and scan QR code to reveal Result Dashboard
CERTIFICATE OF ANALYSIS
Generate a Certificate of Analysis (CoA) with the click of a
button. The CoA reports the cannabinoid content of the sample in weight
percent, limits of detection, user inputted sample identifiers, and
automatically generated information such as time stamp and instrument serial
number. A QR code on the report corresponds with the original test results and
confirms the authenticity of the report itself.
LightLab’s Mobile Monitoring feature gives users the ability to
remotely track sample test progress, start to finish from a smartphone. This
gives users the ability to step away from their LightLab and tend to other
tasks while running a test. LightLab sends notifications when the next step of
the testing process is ready and redirects to the Result Dashboard when
the test is complete.
When a test is complete, a unique QR code is generated that brings
you to a Result Dashboard, populated through an internet webpage. The Result
Dashboard displays sample details and final results. From this page you can
share your data to your social media pages or contacts, generate an official
Certificate of Analysis, and download a CSV report.
Sample analysis results are available in five formats.
1. On-screen –
After you run a sample, the results will populate on the LightLab. From this
screen you can add additional details about the sample by tapping “Notes,” tap
“Done” to run your next sample, or select “Share” to share your results via
email or text. The share feature has two options for sending results; send the
Certificate of Analysis or choose to send the Result Dashboard.
