TORONTO, May 21, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- The evolution of the cannabis industry in Canada will take a giant leap forward in October 2019 with new product categories becoming available in the market. Large and small companies alike are looking ahead to develop quality products that will exceed the expectations of the consumer. However, there are many challenges in formulating any consumable product and a number that are unique to cannabinoid-containing products.
- Assuring quality of input materials
o Control and standardization of cannabis raw material and extraction
o Influence of contaminants in ingredients that could impact on the properties and quality of the finished product
- The risks of cannabinoid degradation
o Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is inherently unstable, and therefore it is important to assess compatibility with ingredients and protection provided by packaging
- Efficient drug delivery of cannabinoids
o Cannabinoids are poorly absorbed and highly metabolized. The route of delivery will impact the absorption, speed of action and effective blood levels. Formulation strategies are critical to optimizing drug absorption.
o Consumer behavior, genetic profile, and many other factors have a significant impact on variability, meaning the response to cannabinoid exposure can be highly individual
