Standard Test



Tests for Potency + Water Activity + Moisture Content.

We’ve made it easy for you test your flowers!

Simply prepare the samples you want tested and drop them off at Sativa Remedy. We will cash you out for a test, and you’ll receive a digital copy of the results in your email inbox within 2 days! Just follow these 3 steps:

Step 1. Prepare Your Sample(s).

A minimum of 2-grams of dried flower is needed for each sample. Don’t have a scale? Just bring in a hand full of flowers, and we’ll weigh out 2 grams during the check-in process!

When choosing the right container to transport your sample to Sativa Remedy, keep in mind the type of testing you will be requesting.

If choosing the Standard Test for potency only, the container is not important as any terpenes or moisture lost during transportation will not effect the potency results. If choosing the Advanced Test, it will be important for you to place your sample into your own airtight container for transportation. Keeping your sample in an airtight container will ensure you get the most accurate results about your flower’s moisture content and water activity.

Step 2. Drop Off Your Sample(s).

Head to Sativa Remedy located at 17 Main St. Tonawanda, NY. 14150.

Any of our budtenders can check-in your sample and cash you out for a test. Your samples will be placed into our own airtight containers.

Step 3. Wait for Results!

Within 48 hours, your test results will be emailed to you. Don’t have an e-mail address? A printed copy of the results can be provided, for an additional fee, if requested during the check-in process!

Properly Dry Your Flowers

If testing with the Standard Test for potency only, flowers with moisture content in excess of 10% may effect the results. If a submitted sample has excess moisture content, our technicians will allow the sample to dry for 24 hours before completing potency testing.

Remove Large Sticks and Stems

Stems, and other non-trichome-covered plant material, can effect the potency results. Submitting properly trimmed samples will help achieve more accurate results. Our technician will attempt to remove as much non-trichome-covered plant material before testing is conducted.

Whether you’re a seasoned edible-maker who needs to determine the original potency for dosing, or you’re a beginner grower who is curious about the potency of the plant they just harvested, Sativa Remedy has you covered! 

Make Edibles

Accurately dose your edibles by determining the original potency of your raw flower.

Preserve Terpenes

Monitor the moisture and water activity during your drying and curing process.

Prevent Mold

Keeping your water activity below .65 for stability and mold prevention.

Which cannabinoids can you test for?

We can test THC between 2-30% and CBD between 2-30%

Can you test edibles and concentrates for potency?

We currently only have the ability to test RAW FLOWER. Soon we hope to be able to test concentrates like wax, crumble, shatter, live resin, etc.

How many samples can I have tested?

For legal reasons, we have a limit on THC-dominant flowers (Type I & Type II) of 5 samples (10g of total flower weight) per customer, per day. There are no sample limitations if you are having CBD-dominant flowers (Type III) tested.

Can I mail you my samples to be test?

We do not accept any sample submissions shipped through mail. Currently, we can only accept hand-delivered samples of both CBD & THC-dominant flowers.

How should I prepare my sample for drop off?

If you are testing for moisture & water activity, it will be important that your sample be placed in an air-tight container during transportation to help preserve your flower’s current state of moisture. If you’re just testing for only potency, it is not as important for the container to be airtight. Your sample will be placed into our own airtight container once received, and return the container you transported your sample in back to you, or dispose of it.

How do you test for potency?

We use a testing machine utilizing near-infrared spectroscopy, that involves shining light on the sample and analyzing the light that is returned. In this part of the light spectrum, molecules react to specific regions of the light to generate a “molecular fingerprint” that can be correlated with concentration. Our testing machine was calibrated against HPLC measurements from multiple state-certified testing laboratories.

How accurate will my results be?

Overall, a +/- 2% accuracy on THC and CBD for simplicity. Statistically, it is +/- 1.89% on THC and +/- 0.96% on CBD, determined by comparison with lab HPLC measurements.

Can I get my sample back after you test it?

For safety and liability reasons, we can not return any tested material back to the customer once the testing has been completed. The remaining tested material must be discarded once all testing is completed.

Will my results match results from a lab?

In some cases it will, and in others it might not. The reason for this is that different labs generally don’t obtain the same results even from the same flower sample (several published reports show this variation). Depending on the exact procedures your lab uses, the alignment of our results with your lab may differ.

DISCLAIMER: Under NYS Law, As of 03/21/21, it is now legal for adults 21 and older to possess up to three ounces of cannabis for personal use in New York State. It is the responsibility of the customer to never transport any amount of cannabis that would exceed the allowable limit under NYS Law.

DISCLAIMER: All cannabis testing performed by Sativa Remedy is not intended to replace mandatory third-party testing of final product and is intended to replace R&D testing which does not require HPLC or GC.
