Required sample size will vary depending on requested testing. Contact us if you have any questions about how much sample material you should submit.

Providing a representative sample is crucial to accurate and reproducible test results. The product batch should be well mixed with a uniform distribution of parts throughout. Pull parts of our samples from different parts within your batch, at random, or systematically depending on your procedures.

The following sample sizes are recommended for basic cannabinoid potency testing. 

  • Flower 2 – 3 grams
  • Oil / Concentrates / Extracts 1 gram

In accordance with Health Canada, submitted samples cannot be returned. Unused remaining sample materials are kept on-hand for 2-4 weeks after testing before being destroyed.

We use an ICP-MS for heavy metals analysis and report on Arsenic, Cadmium, Lead and Mercury. Reporting on additional heavy metals is available on request.

We can test for propane, isobutane, butane, methanol, ethanol, isopropanol, acetone, hexane, heptane, and pentane. Reach out to let us know if there’s something else you’re looking for.

We recommend inquiring about pesticide testing with our Client Care Specialists.

Cannabis on the legal market has passed the Health Canada compliant 96 banned pesticide analysis prior to its release, so 2.0 products made from this cannabis may not  require  further testing.
