Or have a specific issue with your product? CBD Labs has you covered.

 Potency Testing

The most accurate cannabis potency testing in the industry. CBD Labs is the nation’s most trusted provider for cannabis potency testing – leading the industry in methodologies and exceeding mandated standards in applicable states. We utilize Ultra-High Performance Liquid Chromatography (UPLC) that goes beyond testing the level of THC, but also provides detailed cannabinoid profiling across eight other components including CBD and CBN. All CBD Labs potency tests are backed by our cannabis certification program that exceeds state testing mandates.

Residual Solvent Testing

Confirm your cannabis concentrate is safe for consumption. CBD Labs provides residual solvent testing to ensure your concentrates (shatter, wax, hash oil, budder, etc.) are free of impurities. CBD Labs uses the latest technology and state-of-the-art instruments to deliver fast accurate results that confirm your production processes are compliant and safe for consumers. CBD Labs uses Headspace Gas Chromatography to quantify harmful solvents, impurities, or adulterants down to parts-per-million (PPM). Using our Gas Chromatograph with Flame Ionization Detector (GC-FID) means we provide the most comprehensive and accurate testing available anywhere.

Microbial Testing

Helping keep your customers safe from harmful bacteria and mold. CBD Labs uses the most advanced and scientifically sophisticated microbial contaminant cannabis testing methodologies in the industry. CBD Labs surpasses many state requirements for microbial contaminant testing by looking for pathogens such as Clostridium or growth contaminants like black mold. We also offer a variety of testing options for the edible industry including food safety testing as well as quality testing for growers.

Pesticide Testing

Give your customers peace of mind with pesticide free cannabis. Pesticides commonly used in cannabis cultivation are potentially dangerous and pose health risks—the greatest danger occurring with chronic exposure to pesticide residue which is toxic at high levels and harmful at lower doses. CBD Labs provides reassurance to your customers through comprehensive testing of cannabis for pesticides, fungicides and other chemical compounds. Our scientifically validated and comprehensive testing methods enable all screening to be completed on one instrument. CBD Labs only uses a mass spectrometer ensuring the maximum number of pesticides are detected and positively identified.

Aflatoxin Testing

Ensure your cannabis is free of biological contaminants. CBD Labs understands the importance to you and your customers that the cannabis product they use is 100% safe. We are the nation’s leading provider of advanced testing for biological contamination such as aflatoxin which is one of the most dangerous mycotoxins that occur as a byproduct of fungal growth on cannabis. The warm, wet conditions ideal for growing cannabis are also conducive to the growth of molds and fungi, many which can’t be seen by the naked-eye, but are highly dangerous and carcinogenic. Utilizing a spectrophotometric method, CannLabs tests for four aflatoxins: B1, B2, G1, and G2. Testing cannabis for aflatoxins is the only way to ensure your marijuana products are free of biological contaminants that can endanger and compromise the health of patients and consumers—and only CBD Labs offers the infrastructure, technology, and compliance that growers, dispensaries, and consumers have come to trust.

Heavy Metals

Certify your cannabis products are free of toxic heavy metals. CBD Labs offers comprehensive heavy metals testing as a means for growers and dispensaries to responsibly ensure their products are safe for patients and consumers. Heavy metals like arsenic, lead, mercury and cadmium can find their way into cannabis plants through contaminated soil, and testing for the presence of these metals is a complex process. That’s why CBD Labs uses the advanced testing technology of Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS) —the most sensitive instrument available for comprehensive heavy metals testing.

Homogeneity Testing

Ensure your cannabis infused products are compliant. The Marijuana Infused Products (MIPs) industry has seen significant and rapid growth recently. The creativity of manufacturers to find ways to infuse products with cannabis that have a broader appeal to a wider audience has been fascinating. The success of these products however, is dependent upon ensuring stability, consistency and meeting stringent health and safety testing mandates. Therefore homogeneity testing is a key component to a product’s long-term success. As the leading cannabis testing laboratory in the country, CBD Labs is certified, licensed and equipped with the infrastructure to keep up with volume demands for homogeneity testing. CBD Labs uses a validated potency process of Ultra-High Performance Liquid Chromatography (UPLC), with some variations, for THC analysis. We are committed to helping keep your cannabis infused products compliant with homogeneity and labeling regulations, while safe-guarding the cannabis community.
