On March 11, 2020, AOAC’s Cannabis Analytical Science Program Lead Scott Coates joined Dr. Holly Johnson, Chief Science Officer of the American Herbal Products Association, on a well-attended webcast, “Update on Standards and Methods for Cannabis & Hemp Analysis.”

Produced by Analytical Cannabis, the webcast focused on AOAC’s standard for cannabinoids in hemp to support the U.S. Domestic Hemp Production Program created by the Farm Bill of 2018. Dr. Johnson reviewed AOAC methods for THC in hemp.

The webcast attracted 376 live attendees, largely from the United States but also representing Canada, Europe and the Middle East. During a lively Q&A after the speaker presentations, more than 40 questions and comments focused on regulatory issues and analytical science, including sampling, moisture content, pesticides, and laboratory techniques.
