GPG’s lead Botanical Science Director, Bradley Todd, Director of Supply Chain, Shawn Hatley, and Lead Scientist, Todd Griffin recently had the privilege of being guests on CEM Corporation’s YouTube series “Will it Digest?”
Launched in 2015, Will it Digest answers the question, how is the world around us scientifically analyzed? The first step is proper sample preparation. To create the perfect sample, CEM microwave digestion systems rapidly break down the sample matrix leaving only the elements of interest to be analyzed. From lipstick to nickels to Big Mac cheeseburgers, each episode of Will it Digest shows how sample preparation is done.
In episode 17, our own Brad, Todd, and Shawn join our friend, colleague, and show’s host, Michael Howe to provide tips for successful microwave digestion of cannabis and hemp products, including hemp flower, oil, lotions, coffee, candies, and more. And Brad delivers a complete and fascinating overview of the history of hemp. Watch the video to see how CEM makes Sample Prep, Simple!
So, did they digest multiple types of hemp in a single-batch? SPOILER ALERT: Was Robbins, North Carolina once named Hemp, North Carolina? “Yes, it was, and yes, we can!”
