A White Paper on Accurately Classifying Cannabinoid Extracts for Inclusion in Consumer Products
As cannabinoids continue to gain popularity among consumers, commercial producers of everything from pharmaceuticals to beverages are rushing to respond by bringing cannabinoid-enhanced products to market. These commercial producers, particularly those unfamiliar with the cannabinoid landscape, are encumbered by the lack of clear and consistent classification for cannabinoid extracts and derivatives that they seek to add to their products.
A universal classification system for cannabinoid extracts would benefit commercial producers and consumers in many ways. Perhaps most importantly, such a system could aid in determining the legal status of cannabinoid extracts based on their market of sale, which remains a current challenge under the complex patchwork of cannabis laws and regulations that cover North America.
A simple but comprehensive classification system based on how cannabinoid extracts are manufactured, their resulting compositional properties, and their legal status is a crucial next step for the young and fast-growing consumer cannabinoid product industry.
LAVVAN’s advanced cellular agriculture platform offers a way to produce high-quality, pure cannabinoid ingredients that can be easily classified and customized for commercial use.
