Novel LC–MS/MS Method with a Dual ESI and APCI Ion Source for Analysis of California-Regulated Pesticides and Mycotoxins in Medium-Chain Triglyceride (MCT) Oil Cannabis Tinctures

July 01, 2020

Analysis of 66 pesticides and 5 mycotoxins regulated by the State of California in cannabis tinctures were analyzed using LC–MS/MS with an ESI source, and LC–MS/MS with an APCI source. A simple, fast, and cheap acetonitrile solvent extraction method was used for sample preparation for good recovery and high throughput, and internal standards were used to compensate for ion suppression effects from the hydrophobic matrix.
