Morning Rituals: A Glimpse into Jeremy’s World

Jeremy’s day begins with a ritual familiar to many scientists – a precise calibration of his High-Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) and his Gas Chromatograph Mass Spectrometer using his certified reference materials, or standards. He then powers on is microscope and Recombinase Polymerase Amplifier and waits. As he sips on his morning coffee, Jeremy prepares for a day of unraveling the mysteries hidden within the cannabis plant.

Cannabinoid Chronicles: HPLC Analysis

One of Jeremy’s primary tasks involves analyzing the cannabinoid concentrations in cannabis flower and extracts. Using the HPLC instrument, he separates and quantifies cannabinoids with unparalleled accuracy. This step is crucial for ensuring product consistency and potency, providing valuable information to both growers, and extractors.

Terpene Tango: GCMS Revelations

Next on Jeremy’s agenda is the analysis of terpenes and residual solvent concentrations using Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (GCMS). This intricate dance allows him to identify and measure the aromatic compounds that give each cannabis strain its unique flavor and aroma. Simultaneously, he ensures that no harmful levels of residual solvents linger in the final products.

Guardians of the Greenhouse: Detecting Hop Latent Viroid

Jeremy’s work extends beyond cannabinoids and terpenes; he’s also a defender against unseen threats. Using a Recombinase Polymerase Amplifier, he meticulously screens for Hop Latent Viroid, an infectious agent that can wreak havoc on cannabis crops. This proactive approach helps Earth’s Healing maintain a healthy and thriving greenhouse.

Microscopic Marvels: Trichome Exploration

The microscope becomes Jeremy’s portal to a world of microscopic marvels. Having a wealth of experience using a microscope, being that his scientific background is in microbiology and chemistry. He scrutinizes the structure and density of trichomes in various matrices, uncovering the intricate details that contribute to the potency, flavor and therapeutic potential of different cannabis strains. This microscopic journey provides essential insights for both cultivators and product developers.

The Culmination: A Tapestry of Data

As Jeremy wraps up his day, the data collected forms a rich tapestry of information about the cannabis plant. His analyses not only ensure the quality and safety of Earth’s Healing products but also contribute valuable knowledge to the broader cannabis research community. He has consulted and aided many commercial cannabis testing facilities in the state of Arizona, generously sharing valuable information and techniques that help others propel the understanding of analyzing cannabis further.

Conclusion: The Unsung Hero

In the realm of cannabis science, analytical scientists like Jeremy Brown are the unsung heroes, deciphering the language of plants to harness their full potential. Through meticulous analysis and a commitment to precision, Jeremy plays a vital role in Earth’s Healing’s mission to provide high-quality, safe, and effective cannabis products. As the cannabis industry continues to evolve, the work of analytical scientists like Jeremy remains at the forefront, guiding the way toward a deeper understanding of nature’s pharmacy.
