    WK65018

    1. Scope

    This test method provides a validated procedure for the preparation of calibration standards and samples to test for Class 1, Class 2 and Class 3 residual solvents in plant extracts from sample preparation to analysis by HS-GC-MS.


    Keywords

    Head, Space, Gas, Chromatography, HS-GC, Residual, Solvents, Class 1, Class 2, Cannabis

    Rationale

    This test method is a validated procedure for the determination of residual solvents using head space gas chromatography (HS-GC). Full removal of all residual solvents imparted by Cannabis extraction process steps is governed by various jurisdictional monographs and a regulatory requirement.

    The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
