It looks as though this THC detection company has found a niche.
The company is a developer of the Cannabix Marijuana Breathalyzer for law enforcement and the workplace, is pleased to announce that preliminary human subject testing during the month of March have produced excellent results.
CANNABIX TECHNOLOG COM NPV (OTCMKTS:BLOZF) is developing its FAIMS- (field asymmetric waveform ion mobility spectrometry) based marijuana breathalyzer for the detection of delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol in human breath. Testing using the Cannabix Marijuana Breathalyzer Beta prototype device with human subjects after smoking THC cigarettes demonstrated the successful detection of THC, the psychoactive component of marijuana, in real-time. In addition to THC, several metabolites were identified in the breath of the human subjects including 11-hydroxy-delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol and delta-9-carboxy-tetrahydrocannabinol, and three other cannabinoids related to cannabigerol, were confirmed by mass spectrometry after the inhalation of cannabis.
The ability to detect THC and its metabolites in human breath is a significant scientific breakthrough that allows for real-time pharmacokinetic analysis. Such analysis provides a method for the identification of frequent users of marijuana who tend to retain THC in their body for longer periods of time, relative to infrequent marijuana users who tend to clear THC from their body more quickly.
The Company plans further testing with its Beta and Beta 2.0 prototypes over the coming weeks. The Company will be calibrating decay signal intensities with a refined breath collection component.

Cannabix is working to develop drug-testing devices that will detect THC- the psychoactive component of marijuana that causes intoxication- using breath samples.
In particular, Cannabix is focused on developing breath testing devices for detection of recent use of THC, in contrast to urine testing for THC metabolite that requires an invasive collection and reflects use days or even weeks earlier. The devices will also be useful for other practical applications such as testing employees in the workplace where intoxication by THC can be hazardous.
