Will your cellphone be able to tell you what’s in your weed?

Submitted by Marijuana News on Fri, 10/04/2019 - 09:54

Some might use their cellphone to buy their cannabis, but soon it might also be how you can check what’s in your stash or even what’s in your blood.

Samsung, which did not respond to requests for comment, filed a patent this spring for an “Electronic device including several of light sources” which was recently published, as first reported by Let’sGoDigital.

The utility patent describes an electronic device that can emit visible and infrared light with a detector and processor—all the technology needed for a spectrometer.

Spectrometers shine visible and infrared light waves at an object and analyzes the light that bounces back to determine the makeup of that object. Theoretically, if you point the sensor at an apple, it could tell you how much sugar is inside.

A drawing from Samsung’s patent.

But Gregory A. Barrett-Wilt, Ph.D., director of the University of Wisconsin’s Mass Spectrometry Facility says it could potentially be used for other purposes.
