Revision of D8270-23 Standard Terminology Relating to Cannabis


The revision of D8270-23 - Standard Terminology Relating to Cannabis to include "broad spectrum extract" and "full spectrum extract" is crucial due to the evolving nature of the cannabis industry and the emergence of new extraction techniques. These terms, which refer to specific types of extracts containing various combinations of cannabinoids, terpenes, and other compounds, have gained significant usage. However, without standardized definitions, their use can lead to confusion and inconsistency. Including these definitions in the standard will ensure clarity, consistency, and improved communication among industry professionals, regulators, researchers, and consumers.
