Determination of Cannabis Moisture Content

Flexible, Fully Automated, Easy to Use Infrared Moisture Analyzer MA 160 for Fast, Reliable and Traceable Results

Super-fast determination of the moisture content of Cannabis is a crucial indicator of potential microbial contamination. Unlike synthetically produced drugs, the cannabis plant is more susceptible to diseases and contaminants. In particular, poor drying of the plants during drug extraction processes can lead to mold or fungal infestation, which in turn may pose a risk to the health of the consumer, particularly those with immunodeficiencies. Properly dried cannabis contains 10 to 12 percent moisture. To avoid moisture contents above 12 percent, which make dried cannabis more prone to mold, you need to precisely determine the moisture content for, example by means of  highly accurate, user-friendly moisture analyzers.

Do you need accurate measurements to determine the water content in cured cannabis, raw cannabis, edible cannabis, or CBD products for quality control? Do you need accurate moisture results during sample preparation for analytics of active ingredients, such as cannabinoids or terpenes, or for CO2 extraction without waiting for hours?  Then say goodbye to time-consuming measurements with a drying oven and opt in on using a fully automatic moisture analyzer instead.

Moisture is an important process parameter for the processing of cannabis, either to monitor the curing process or before the extraction of cannabis, where certain moisture limits must not be exceeded or undercut.

Moisture not only effects shelf-life and taste sensation but can also affect the percentage of THC in cannabis products, as moisture is a substantial part of the total weight. If the moisture changes, the percentage of the THC also changes, as the total amount of THC remains constant.

Analytical Cannabis Testing with Best in Class Sample Prep and Data Integrity

Accurate and Consistent Lab Work Deserves Reliable and Precise Equipment

Are you testing for pesticides, mycotoxins, residual solvents, heavy metals, terpenes or cannabinoids? You can have the highest sensitivity and performance in terms of your analytical equipment but are your samples up to scratch? The quality of your results will largely depend on the quality of the samples as the best analysis starts with the best sample prep. We can help.

Testing of cannabis products from dried flowers to edibles is highly regulated and as state and country rules evolve, the requirements imposed on laboratories continue to grow.  To meet these new and more stringent demands, regardless of what you’re analyzing, you’ll need robust and reliable lab equipment to perform your daily lab tasks and to guarantee consumer safety.

  • Specify mass and moisture content of your samples using precise balances and super-fast moisture analyzers
  • Use ultrapure water to prepare your samples and run your chromatography tests
  • Flow your work with robust and accurate pipettes, tips and bottle top dispensers
  • Simply and safely remove solids from your sample with syringe filters and centrifuges
  • Choose from a range of analytical and precision balances that not only deliver the best weighing results but focus on making your analytical workflows more efficient, reliable and ergonomic. 

With 150 year track record, Sartorius smart solutions will help you keep your processes and products under control. As a manufacturer of intelligent premium lab tools for sample preparation, we can help you build efficient workflows and improve your data integrity for your Cannabis analysis while you concentrate on achieving high quality results and safe products.
