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.
