With the approval of the 2018 Farm bill in the United States, hemp crops have now been legalized to grow and sell exempted from regulation by the Controlled Substances Act. To be considered as hemp, cannabis plants should have Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) level less than 0.3% which is insufficient to induce psychoactive effects. We developed regression algorithms for the real-time screening of major cannabinoids (CBD (cannabidiol) and THC) content in dry and ground hemp flower utilizing the full NIR range. Modes are set to analyze dry, cured, and ground samples of hemp (THC<0.6%) by Neospectra scanner.
We'd be happy to talk through your options.
