Why We Need a Highly Sensitive THC Test for Farmers and Law Enforcement

As local law enforcement agencies continue struggling to decipher the difference between hemp and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)-rich cannabis, the state of Virginia is hoping to quell the issue with a new field test kit.

The Virginia Department of Forensic Science recently purchased 16,150 Cannabis Typification testing kits—otherwise known as the 4-AP test—to distribute to police departments across the state.

As you can see from this short video, while this test is considered to be one of the best in-field tests, it is still far from what is ultimately needed to help both farmers and law enforcement officers quickly and accurately determine if a small sample of cannabis is marijuana or industrial hemp.
