The detection and quantification of cannabinoids in blood is of major interest in forensic and clinical toxicology. Although GC/MS is the standard procedure, the use of gas chromatography coupled to tandem quadrupole mass spectrometry enhances the analytical security of the test, the LOQ at 0.2 ng/mL appears suitable to extend the time frame of cannabis. This paper describes a sensitive, specific, and reproducible method to detect and quantify three cannabinoids in blood.
