Altasciences has over 10 years’ experience in cannabis studies, conducting nearly 40 studies on different cannabis products, cannabinoids, or with cannabis users. We are also at the forefront of comparing vaping devices to combustible products, both for pharmacokinetics and exposure to potential harmful biomarkers. Our studies meet current FDA regulations for tobacco products.

We have extensive experience with all routes of administration:

  • Combustible
  • Vaping
  • Tablets
  • Oils
  • Sublingual
  • Topical gels

We have worked with whole plant extracts and isolated phytocannabinoids or fully synthetic cannabinoids. Our bioanalytical laboratory has validated methods for THC, CBD, and three other cannabinoids.

We also routinely assess drug-liking as well as psychoactive and cognitive effects of cannabis or cannabinoid formulations.
