The medical cannabis industry is one of the fastest-growing industries worldwide. As the industry matures, many challenges are being faced, such as ensuring consumer safety and providing products free from potential contaminants such as heavy metals. Like all plants, cannabis absorbs metals from its environment, a result of normal plant metabolism. This leads to concern that these elements may occur in high concentrations in cannabis plants.

Milestone’s SRC microwave digestion is a revolutionary new approach, incorporating all the benefits of closed-vessel microwave digestion, while making sample preparation fast, easy, and efficient. 

This complimentary technical note describes how a variety of samples from the cannabis industry were digested simultaneously without sample-to-sample cross contamination.
