9. What is the difference of a Standard Potency test (Gas - GC/FID) and a Premium Potency Test (Liquid -HPLC)?

A: The GC for Standard Potency is an instrument which uses heat to separate the cannabinoids. This process activates any acidic versions of cannabinoids (THC-A, CBD-A) and will give a total potential readout of THC (delta-9), CBD and CBN. This test will best mimic smoking, vaporizing and dabbing.
The HPLC for Premium Potency is an instrument which uses high pressure and liquid to separate the cannabinoids and read them through the column. Since this process does not use any heat, it can read many more cannabinoids, such as the ones we test for: THC (delta-9), THC-A, CBD, CBD-A, CBN and CBG. This process is best for mimicking eating cannabis or applying it to the skin.
