Why should I test my Cannabis?

Consumption of a contaminated cannabis product is harmful with the potential to be deadly to a person with a weak immune system.

Cannabis is susceptible to contamination at any time during its growth, harvest, storage and processing. 

Our method of testing:

  • Manual dry plating on selective media
  • This test is a Pass or Fail
  • We are testing for:

             Salmonella spp.
             Escherichia. coli STEC
             Aspergillus fumigatus
             Aspergillus flavus
             Aspergillus niger

Our plating method is useful in identifying the presence of more contaminates than required by regulated microbial screening. Thus, we can inform cultivators of potential mold and other unwanted growth and even help to locate the site of contamination with location specific swab analysis.

 

Terpene list

Terpenes are a group of chemicals that often are described by scent. Because terpene profiles are unique to each strain, they are commonly used as a fingerprint for the different cannabis strains. You can also infer what other strains have been crossed to get the plant you have today. There is some evidence of therapeutic properties associated with terpenes. We offer standard and extended terpene testing to offer a deeper understanding of your cannabis product.

Residual Solvent Testing

As cannabis extracts are becoming more common, these extracts are making their way into foods, candies, vapor pens, and who knows what else tomorrow. After solvent removal processes, there can be residual solvents found in the extract.

All of these solvents and others are harmful if consumed. The state of Alaska has deemed these levels safe for human consumption.

n-Butane < 800 ppm (parts per million)                                                  Benzene < 0.025 ppm
Heptane < 500 ppm                                                                                Toluene < 1 ppm
n-Hexane < 10 ppm                                                                                Total Xylenes (meta-xylenes, para-xylenes, or ortho-xylenes) < 1 ppm
