  • terpenes Terpenes

    Our terpene method analyzes 37 of the most common terpenes found in hemp, providing you with a broad and comprehensive terpene profile of your hemp or hemp-derived product. We use Shimadzu GC-MS systems to perform terpene profile testing on any type of product ranging from biomass to concentrates to finished products of various matrices.

  • potency Cannabinoid Potency

    Our cannabinoid potency method analyzes 11 of the major cannabinoids found in today’s hemp and hemp-derived products. Capable of distinguishing between broad-spectrum and full-spectrum products, our services give your consumers confidence that your labels are true to claim. We carry out potency testing on a Shimadzu HPLC-PDA system capable of detecting cannabinoids present in the parts-per-million range. We are capable of accurately testing any and all types of matrices ranging from biomass to concentrates to finished products.

    For floral material, cannabinoid profiles are performed and measured on a dry weight basis, per the USDA’s Final Rule on the 2018 Farm Bill.*
