CBD Analysis in Food and Dietary Supplements

Hemp products are a current example of a product group that raises difficult issues. These days, everyone is talking about food products made with hemp. Cannabis has ascended quickly from being a niche product to gaining superfood status. As would be expected, there are numerous hemp products to be found on the market at the moment that are not entirely marketable by law. Novel food authorization and health claim regulations are important terms in this field, not just for those who are putting these products on the market.

In addition to having the relevant know-how for the legal assessment, special analysis is also necessary: that means, for example, determining the active ingredients, THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabidiol). Some of the products that can be bought today even demonstrate THC levels that are detrimental to human health.

Aside from THC, Cannabidiol (CBD) is a cannabinoid from the hemp plant known as a psychoactive substance. Positive properties are ascribed to CBD, such as relief from pain, depression, or sleeplessness. That’s why it is primarily used in dietary supplements and aromatic oils, as well as hemp seeds, hemp oil, and hemp tea.

TeLA GmbH is set up to analyze this in a variety of matrices and provides very sensitive analysis of THC, THC-A, CBD, CBD-A, CBN, and CBG. Of course, all of the analyses we offer are accredited and adapted to the corresponding matrix.

Algal Toxins

Algal toxins are among the most poisonous biogenic substances that we know. They are produced by certain microalgae called dinoflagellates. These organisms, however, represent a source of nutrients for mussels, snails, and crustaceans. That’s how algal toxins can end up in the human body. In order to prevent algal toxin poisoning, it is essential to continuously monitor the mussel beds in Europe.

The following groups of toxins are analyzed:

  • ASP (amnesic shellfish poisoning): In this case, the domoic acid causes permanent short-term memory loss and brain damage.
  • DSP (diarrhetic shellfish poisoning): This group of toxins includes okadaic acid and azaspiacid. They cause severe diarrhea.
  • PSP (paralytic shellfish poisoning): The main toxin in this group is saxitoxin. It is more poisonous than synthetic neurotoxins and induces paralysis, which in severe cases can be fatal.
