Toxicology / Forensics
- the branch of science concerned with the nature, effects, and detection of poisons.
- the measurement and analysis of potential toxins, intoxicating or banned substances, and prescription medications present in a person’s body.
The science of toxicology began as the study and classification of poisons and the effects of toxic substances, primarily on humans. Today, toxicology research and the application of the science across industries, takes many forms – from clinical and diagnostic, to veterinary and agricultural, to screening related to employment and rehabilitation, to forensics and evidence processing. (Also see our sections on Environmental, and Pharmaceutical/Drug Discovery.)
Environmental laboratories play an important role in helping us to understand and protect our environment. They carry out a range of tests and analyses on air, water, and soil samples to monitor environmental conditions. By doing so, they help us identify any potential contamination or pollution that may be present in the environment. This can help us to take steps to reduce or eliminate these pollutants, ensuring that our environment remains safe and healthy for everyone.
Environmental laboratories also provide valuable data which can be used to inform policy decisions on how best to protect our planet’s resources.
Cannabis research is important to understanding the effects of plant medicine, CBD, and THC, and identifying potential benefits for those suffering from PTSD or other conditions that may be relieved with medical cannabis. By understanding the properties of different strains of cannabis, doctors can better recommend the right type of medicine to their patients.
As more countries and states legalize cannabis for both medical and recreational use, it is increasingly important to understand the various compounds found in cannabis plants to ensure safe consumption. As well, testing for contaminants – from microbials to heavy metals to pesticides to residual solvents – is essential to consumer safety. With proper testing in place, we can all work together to make sure that everyone has access to safe and effective cannabis products.
Psychedelics research is a rapidly growing field of study that is exploring the potential therapeutic benefits of plant medicines and other psychedelic compounds. These substances are being studied for their potential to treat conditions like PTSD, depression, addiction, and pain. Psilocybin and MDMA are two of the most widely studied psychedelics due to their promising results in clinical trials.
The research into psychedelics has led to an increased interest in pharmaceutical companies investing in this area. This could potentially lead to new treatments for a variety of conditions that are currently difficult to treat. Additionally, it could open up new avenues for therapeutic approaches that can help people who suffer from mental health issues or chronic pain.
This field of research has the potential to revolutionize how we approach mental health and addiction treatment, as well as provide relief from physical pain without relying on traditional pharmaceuticals.
