high-quality cannabis testing to
ensure safety of your products
Our specialized team uses state-of-the-art scientific equipment and a lab information management system to deliver information that you need to take your products to market quickly. Our Success is measured by your success. No matter what your product is, we are committed to helping you every step of the way to achieve compliance, so you can focus on your customers.
We offer fast, high-sensitivity testing to determine the potency of your cannabis products. Our tests will determine the levels of THCA/THC and CBDA/CBD and their total equivalency. Potency can be determined on fresh/dried flower, oils, extracts and concentrates. If you are interested in potency testing of a product that is not listed above, please contact us.
We are outfitted to complete all Health Canada mandated microbial tests on your fresh/dried flower, oils, extracts and concentrates. We will provide amounts of total yeast and mold, total aerobic microbial counts, bile-tolerant gram-negative bacteria, E. coli, and Salmonella. Upon request testing for S. aureus, and P. aeruginosa can be conducted.
Our method is capable of fulfilling Health Canada requirements for the analysis of aflatoxins on dried cannabis flower, oils and extracts. We test for aflatoxins B1, B2, G1 and G2.
Heavy Metal Analysis
Cannabis is known to accumulate heavy metals in its tissues. As required by Health Canada, our lab can efficiently and accurately test dried flower, oil and extracts for lead (Pb), cadmium (Cd), mercury (Hg) and arsenic (As). Additional metal screening for trace elements can also be performed as needed.
Regulations for pesticide use on cannabis are strict. We use a combination of high-tech analytical techniques for pesticides screening. This screening can be done for fresh/dried flower, oils, extracts and concentrates. Please contact us for detailed information on pesticides screening.
Residual Solvent Analysis
To ensure the safety of your products and maintain compliance with Health Canada regulations, we have developed tests to determine the quantity of residual solvents in cannabis oils, extracts and concentrates. We can determine the quantity of methanol, ethanol, acetone, isopropanol (isopropyl alcohol), acetonitrile, hexane, heptane and pentane.
Loss On Drying
Before sale in Canada the moisture content of all dried cannabis flower must be reported. Our tests will provide you with the percent moisture of your products.
As per Health Canada regulations we will visually inspect your cannabis products for the presence of foreign material.
In addition to potency testing, we can quantify 14 unique cannabinoids in cannabis products. The list of cannabinoids includes Tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA), Δ9-Tetrahydrocannabinol (Δ9-THC), Cannabidiolic acid (CBDA), Cannabidiol (CBD), Cannabinol (CBN), Cannabigerolic acid (CBGA), Cannabigerol (CBG), (±)-Cannabichromenic acid (CBCA), (±)-Cannabichromene (CBC), Tetrahydrocannabivarinic acid (THCVA), Tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV), Cannabidivarinic acid (CBDVA), Cannabidivarin (CBDV) and Cannabigerovarinic acid (CBGVA).
Flavour and aroma of cannabis come from its terpene profile. That’s why we can quantify 39 terpenes commonly detected in cannabis. Our tests can determine the quantities of the monoterpenes, alpha-Pinene, Camphene, Sabinene, beta-Pinene, beta-Myrcene, alpha-Phellandrene, (1S)-(+)-3-Carene, alpha-Terpinene, (R)-(+)-Limonene, Eucalyptol, Ocimene, gamma-Terpinene, Sabinene Hydrate, L-(-)-Fenchone, Terpinolene, Linalool, (1R)-Endo-(+)-Fenchyl Alcohol, (1S)-(-)-Camphor, (-)-Isopulegol, Isoborneol, (+/-)-Borneol, Hexahydrothymolalpha-Terpineol,gamma-Terpineol, Geranyl Acetate, (+)-Pulegone, Geraniol, Nerol. We can also test for sesquiterpenes including, alpha-Cedrene, trans-Caryophyllene, (-)-Caryophyllene Oxide, alpha-Humulene, Valencene, cis-Nerolidol, trans-Nerolidol, Guaiol, (+)-Cedrol and (-)-Alpha-Bisabolol.
