In the mid-1980s, realizing the potential value of a fully integrated “cannabis fingerprint system” including standardized equipment and methods, a database for reference, and an automated means to interpret data, officials turned to the scientific community for assistance. In 1987, the National Institute of Drug Abuse (NIDA) funded a Small Business Innovative Research grant submitted by ElSohly Laboratories, Inc. (ELI), to develop analytical methodologies that could be used to compare complete chemical fingerprints of Cannabis samples of different geographical origins.
