Speaker
  • Chief Science Officer, International Research Center on Cannabis and Health
    Biography
      Dr. Jahan Marcu has over 15 years of experience in cannabinoid research, policy, and operations. He has been a passionate advocate focused on consumer safety and the medical benefits of cannabis. He is also among a select group of professionals globally that has earned a PhD focused on the endocannabinoid system (with research on the structure and function of cannabinoid receptors, molecular pharmacology of the endocannabinoid system, and the role of the ECS in bone).

      He is presently the Editor-In-Chief of the American Journal of Endocannabinoid Medicine. He is the Chief Science Officer and co-founder of the International Research Center on Cannabis and Health, a community-based institute that collaborates with universities, researchers, foundations, state institutions, and others to leverage the highest caliber talent in the field. He is also founder and past-chair of the Cannabis Chemistry Sub-division of the American Chemical Society, the world's largest and oldest professional scientific society. Further illustrating the recognition earned through his efforts, he has been asked to serve on multiple expert government advisory and trade association committees, as well as scientific organizations including ASTM (D37 Subcommittee chair), AHPA Cannabis committee (past-chair), ACS Cannabis Chemistry Subdivision (CANN), AOCS, AOAC, IACM(past BOD), and IMCPC (co-founder).

    Abstract

    There is growing consumer and patient demand for products containing cannabidiol (CBD) and other constituents of the cannabis plant, due to their purported medicinal benefits for a myriad of health conditions. Quality control laboratories provide important ancillary services for the medical cannabis industry in the United States. Method development for cannabis analysis is on-going in the industry due to increasing demands on laboratories to produce accurate results in a timely and inexpensive manner.

    This presentation will discuss various cannabis extractions methods for producing different products, as well as the effects of sample preparation and analysis on the labeling of these product. Results from analyzing cannabis products and the accuracy of their labels will be discussed. Data from analyzing cannabis samples, extracts, and concentrates will be shared. Lastly, the role of training and 3rd party product certification for health and safety standards will be discussed as one potential solution to the public health issues facing the cannabis industry.

    Learning Objectives:

    • Be able to describe and compare the benefits and drawbacks of different extraction methods
    • Be able to examine and assess cannabis products based on labeling and other product information
