Headspace Gas Chromatography with Flame Ionization Detection (HS-GC-FID)
AMOUNT OF SAMPLE NEEDED
SCOPE OF TEST
A terpene profile is another measure of product potency, as many terpenes are believed to produce physiological effects and contribute to the “Entourage Effect” of hemp consumption. Through chemical analysis, our team identifies the presence and concentration of terpenoid compounds, which are reported as a weight-based percentage.
Why it matters
Seeing the terpene breakdown for a given product is helpful for consumers to learn how and why a hemp product may affect them in a certain way. Identifying which terpenes are present is useful for tracking effects and comparing products so consumers can identify additional products that will produce similar smells and flavors.
