Journal of pharmaceutical and biomedical analysis, 76, 119-125 (2013-01-12)
An advanced analytical method based on liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS), has been developed for the identification and determination in hair of Δ(9)-tetrahydrocannabinol together with its major metabolite 11-nor-9-carboxy-Δ(9)-tetrahydrocannabinol. Since the latter is formed endogenously, it allows the assessment of

We measured Δ(9)-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), 11-nor-9-carboxy-THC (THCCOOH), cannabidiol (CBD), and cannabinol (CBN) disposition in oral fluid (OF) following controlled cannabis smoking to evaluate whether monitoring multiple cannabinoids in OF improved OF test interpretation. Cannabis smokers provided written informed consent for this

Clinical chemistry, 57(11), 1597-1606 (2011-08-31)
Oral fluid (OF) testing is increasingly important for drug treatment, workplace, and drugged-driving programs. There is interest in predicting plasma or whole-blood concentrations from OF concentrations; however, the relationship between these matrices is incompletely characterized because of few controlled drug-administration
