Oral fluid testing is gaining approval in the forensic toxicology community as a suitable tool to supplement urine and blood testing where misuse of drugs is suspected. Cannabis misuse continues widely all over the world, and this has led to the necessity for rapid and reliable methods for the analysis and quantitation of THC and its main metabolite 11-nor-9-carboxy-THC (THC-COOH). In addition, THCA is a marker which can show a distinction between Cannabis Sativa use and synthetic medicinal Dronabinol.
