What It Does
A little amount of cannabis is combined with a test fluid to measure the ratio of THC to CBD, and the mixture is pipetted onto a glass plate known as a TLC plate. Only the bottom part of the TLC plate is submerged in the developing solvent when it is placed in the pool. The developing solvent or carrier fluid gently ascents the TLC plate during the mobile phase due to capillary action. The solvent goes through the cannabis test droplet as it rises on the TLC plate.
There will be variations in each component’s solubility and absorption in the test droplet. Each component will be sent a different distance up the TLC plate. When the solvent reaches the top of the TLC plate, the plate is taken out of the developing solvent. After three minutes of drying time, the TLC plate is sprayed with dye to create a visual profile of the test droplet components. On the TLC plate, each cannabinoid shows up as a distinct color in a different area.
Visual color indicators for the chemicals present in your cannabis products are provided by our THC Test Kit For Growers. The kit was made specifically for evaluating marijuana plants and oils and uses Thin Layer Chromatography (TLC).
TLC, GC, and HPLC comparison
A “Thin Layer Chromatography” testing tool called the THC Test Kit For Growers was created especially for analyzing medical marijuana. The University of Leiden in Amsterdam initially approved the product, which is patent-pending and registered.
The THC Test Kit For Growers has been used for years at coffee shops and dispensaries in the Netherlands, but it never gained popularity among individual users in Europe, maybe because medicinal marijuana is not illegal there.
With the use of this THC Test Kit For Growers, you can visually identify the chemicals in cannabis such as THC, THCV, CBD, CBC, CBG, and CBN. We advise you to conduct several tests and establish your baseline using the averages of the outcomes. Testing is done for acids as well as approximated THC% and CBD% using visual chronograph indications.
Along with oils and foods, it works on plant-based materials.
Different testing methods are used in laboratories, including Gas Chromatography (GC), High-Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC), and Thin Layer Chromatography (TLC) (*the method we offer*).
The products they test must be produced by registered growers in order for them to be legal, and their testing has not been shown to be any better than that of these THC Test Kit For Growers. The same plant can be tested three times and yield three different results. You would also obtain three different results if you submitted the same sample to three different labs.
Based on our findings, this THC Test Kit For Growers is neither better nor worse than labs. We believe that labs view themselves as the sole players in the market and will attempt to force medical marijuana suppliers to utilize their expensive, unproven procedures. They will establish themselves as the sole approved method of testing medical marijuana by obtaining government backing. Without an alternative test, suppliers will be forced to spend a lot of money on testing in labs that may be difficult to access and still receive inconsistent findings, when they could instead conduct their own testing internally for a lot less money and hassle.
