  • Tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCa)

  • Cannabidiolic acid (CBDa)
  • Cannabidiol (CBD)
  • Cannabinol (CBN)
  • Cannabichromene (CBC)
  • Cannabigerolic acid (CBGa)
  • Cannabigerol (CBG)

This helps you optimize your curing process and helps determine whether your products are ready for long term storage.
