Here’s some more information about¬†> 0.3% THC – Marijuana

In Texas, it is illegal to possess Cannabis Sativa L with a total delta 9 THC concentration greater than 0.3%. This concentration is used to differentiate between marijuana and hemp. Hemp, which is legal in Texas, must have a total delta 9 THC concentration of less than 0.3%. Therefore, it is essential to know how to test for marijuana with a total delta 9 THC concentration higher than 0.3%. One option is laboratory testing, which is conducted by licensed testing laboratories such as Armstrong Forensic Laboratory.

To test Cannabis Sativa L for total delta 9 THC concentration greater than 0.3%, a laboratory uses a high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) or dual column gas chromatograph with flame ionization detector (GC-FID). These machines separate the cannabinoids in a sample and can measure their concentration. The HPLC and GC-FID are highly accurate machines that can reliably differentiate between marijuana and hemp. Each are widely used methods for determining THC concentrations in cannabis products. In addition, the identification of delta 9 THC is confirmed with additional analytical methods in accordance with SWGDRUG and ASTM.

The results of laboratory testing are admissible in court and can be used as evidence in cases involving marijuana possession with a THC concentration greater than 0.3%. This testing is necessary to prosecute individuals who are in possession of illegal marijuana. Additionally, it can be used to exonerate individuals who are mistakenly charged with possessing illegal marijuana when they are actually in possession of legal hemp.

Armstrong Forensic Laboratory is a Texas Forensic Science Commission (TFSC) certified testing laboratory. The TFSC oversees and certifies all forensic laboratories in Texas, ensuring that they adhere to strict standards and procedures. Armstrong Forensic Laboratory is a reliable and trusted source for laboratory testing for marijuana and THC concentration in Texas.

In conclusion, laboratory testing is essential to determine the total delta 9 THC concentration to differentiate between marijuana and hemp in Texas. It is necessary in legal cases involving marijuana possession with a total delta 9 THC concentration greater than 0.3%, as the results are admissible in court. Armstrong Forensic Laboratory is a TFSC-certified testing laboratory and a reliable source for laboratory testing in Texas.
