Hyperspectral Imaging for Cannabis Monitoring With Both Spatial & Spectral Information

Hyperspectral imaging is poised to make a significant impact on the cannabis industry because of its ability to simultaneously utilize the value of both spatial and spectral information. Current cannabis testing methods rely on spot sampling and do not capture enough data to measure the variability within a sample. Hyperspectral imaging is non-destructive and enables real-time test results, allowing rapid and complete product testing without the need to remove samples from product and prepare those samples for testing. Applications include determining cannabinoid concentration, moisture content testing, mold detection and monitoring, improved foreign-object detection in cultivation, enhanced testing for regulatory and law-enforcement reasons, and monitoring cannabis plant growth.
