In recent years, there has been a growing need for reliable methods to detect cannabis impairment, especially in the workplace. Employers are increasingly turning to cannabis breathalyzers as a way to ensure that their employees are not under the influence while on the job. These devices are designed to measure the amount of THC, the psychoactive component in cannabis, in a person's breath, providing a more accurate indication of impairment than traditional urine or blood tests.

A Breathalyzer designed to determine whether someone is currently under the influence of cannabis is being used by employers in Michigan and other states. This technology has the potential to revolutionize workplace drug testing, providing a more objective and immediate assessment of impairment.

CU Boulder and the National Institute of Standards and Technology are teaming up to help adapt a 90-year-old system for detecting alcohol to also detect THC. This collaboration is paving the way for more accurate and reliable cannabis breathalyzers that can be used in a variety of settings, including roadside testing and workplace drug screening.

A California-based biotech company has released a commercially available 'marijuana breathalyzer' that could help with workplace cannabis. This device is capable of detecting THC levels in a person's breath within minutes, making it a valuable tool for employers looking to maintain a drug-free workplace.

While there are technically marijuana breathalyzers on the market right now, neither researchers at the University of Colorado Boulder nor any other institution have developed a device that is widely accepted as a reliable indicator of impairment. This has led to a lack of consensus on the effectiveness of these devices in real-world scenarios.

New marijuana breathalyzer aims to detect workplace cannabis use in Albany, N.Y. This cutting-edge technology is poised to revolutionize how employers approach drug testing, offering a more accurate and efficient method of detecting impairment.

A Virginia Commonwealth University professor and a partner are developing a new THC breathalyzer that could be used to quickly detect if someone is under the influence of cannabis. This device has the potential to play a crucial role in workplace safety and productivity, providing employers with a more reliable way to ensure that their employees are not impaired on the job.

Dr. X, an assistant professor in the Department of Forensic Science at VCU's College of Humanities and Sciences, hopes to create a device that will set a new standard for cannabis breathalyzer technology. His research is focused on developing a device that is both accurate and practical for widespread use in workplace settings.

Cannabix, as an early-stage company, has been focused on technological innovation in breath analysis and we are truly excited to be working on the next generation of cannabis breathalyzers. Their commitment to advancing the field of cannabis impairment detection has positioned them as a leader in the industry.

Hound Labs hopes the cannabis breathalyzer will enable employers to discourage marijuana use during the workday. By providing a reliable and non-invasive method of detecting cannabis impairment, these devices have the potential to improve workplace safety and productivity.
