Well known for their characteristic flavour and fragrance characteristics, terpenes are contained in the derived essential oils of cannabis. Analysis of cannabis for terpene concentrations can be applied to strain identification, referred to as fingerprinting, and for concentration accuracy when applied to medicinal treatments.
Terpenes have high vapour pressures, are extremely volatile and thus are an excellent candidate for static headspace GC analysis.
