True Quantification of THC and THCA

A new rapid test developed by Pittsburgh-based Hemp Synergistics LLC and in partnership with Purdue University Northwest could provide law enforcement with an easy-to-use tool to distinguish hemp from marijuana in less than five minutes.

True Quantification

This device provides an identification and semi-quantitation of Delta-9 THC and Delta-9 THCA in plant material. The technology works on a patented chemical test that can be easily administered in the field. The product is scheduled to be available for sale Fall 2020 and is expected to be priced similarly to non-discriminatory field test kits used regularly by law enforcement.

Results in 90 Seconds

With the new tool, law enforcement will be able to test a given specimen’s levels of Delta-9 THC, or the cannabinoid compound found in cannabis products associated with getting a person high and get results in under 90 seconds.
