Δ9-Tetrahydrocannabinol (Δ9THC) is the primary psychoactive chemical that results from the consumption of Cannabis. Upon consumption, this cannabinoid (CB) acts as a partial agonist with both the central CB receptor 1 (CB1) and the peripheral CB receptor 2 (CB2).1,2 Its actions are analogous to the endogenous neurotransmitter anandamide when it binds to receptors and alters mental and physical functions in the body.3

Once in the liver, Δ9-THC gets broken down by cytochrome p450 enzymes CYP2C9, CYP2C19, CYP3A4, to the psychoactive metabolite 11-hydroxy-THC.4,5 11-hydroxy-THC is then further oxidized to the non-psychoactive metabolite 11-nor-9-carboxy-THC.6 This carboxy form has been found to be the most abundant metabolite of Δ9-Tetrahydrocannabinol. For this reason, it is often used as the main urinary marker for Cannabis consumption.

Needed but not supplied: Please download the kit booklet to verify if UltraPure Water (Milli-Q or equivalent) or any other components are needed for this assay.
