Testing Services

The Good Lab offers a full battery of tests for cannabis, hemp and marijuana.

10-Cannabinoid Potency Profile

THC, THCA, THCV, CBD, CBDA, CBDV, CBN, CBG, CBGA & CBC

Our Potency Profile, using High-Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) with a Photo Diode Array (PDA) for enhanced detection, offers a comprehensive analysis of common therapeutic compounds found in marijuana. It provides important information to make an informed decision about the product.

High-Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) is the most powerful method for measuring cannabinoid content in cannabis. Unlike Gas Chromatograpy (GC), HPLC doesn’t heat the sample prior to analysis, which prevents the acidic (non-active) cannabinoids from being decarboxylated into their active forms. Detecting the acidic cannabinoids (such as THC-A and CBD-A) is crucial for patients and consumers. It’s the only way to determine how well a product has been activated during the cooking process.

Product Homogeneity

One of the most important steps in creating a quality infused cannabis product is ensuring cannabinoid content is evenly distributed. Our homogeneity test will help ensure that the cannabis in your infused product is consistently and reliably distributed throughout. This requires multiple potency tests.

Residual Solvents

The extraction process can leave unwanted chemicals behind in the final product which can cause serious health problems. Our residual solvent test can ensure that the extraction process was complete and the final product is clean and free of solvents.

Heavy Metals

Marijuana and hemp grown outdoors can be highly susceptible to contamination due to the plant’s ability to take up metals and other elements from the soil and/or water. Excessive exposure can cause serious health problems including neurological damage. Our test for heavy metals helps ensure that your product is clean and compliant with health guidelines.

Mycotoxins

Mycotoxins are toxic waste products from mold and fungus. Some are capable of causing disease and death in humans and animals. Testing for mycotoxins can help ensure that your product is free of these toxic substances.

Microbials

Our microbial laboratory is run by experts from the food testing industry, incorporating the same standards of quality required by the USDA and FDA. Combining advanced qPCR technology with 3M™ Petrifilm™ Rapid Yeast and Mold plating will provide you full panel STEC (Shiga-toxin producing E. coli), Salmonella, and Total Yeast and Mold Count analyses.

Pesticides & Fungicides

Some pesticides are highly toxic when consumed in products grown and developed from cannabis. This is particularly concerning in flower or concentrates that will be smoked or vaporized. Marijuana and hemp grown outdoors can be highly susceptible to contamination due to the plant’s ability to take up pesticides, herbicides and other elements from the soil and/or water. Testing for pesticides can be critical to getting a product approved for market.

Sex Determination

Is it a boy or a girl? No gender surprises with a sex determination test.
