Industry Expertise



Recognizing cannabis as medicine underscores the importance of precision.


Terpenes, the aromatic and flavorful compounds found in flowers, herbs, and spices, contribute to distinct scents and tastes.


Inherent hazards accompany the use of pesticides, designed to combat microorganisms and plant pests. However, the drawback lies in the possibility of residue transfer onto end products.

Heavy Metals

The assessment of heavy metal contamination holds vital significance across flowers, water, food, and solvent-based products.

Residual Solvents

The creation of concentrated oils and waxes involves the use of solvents like acetone, ethanol, and butane for cannabinoid and terpene extraction from cannabis and hemp plants.


Microorganisms and bacteria are ubiquitous in our world. They often can grow under the same conditions as cannabis and if consumed, these contaminants could lead to serious illness.


The favorable warm and humid conditions that foster cannabis growth also promote the proliferation of molds and fungi, many of which remain unseen but carry significant danger.


Vitamin E acetate, vegetable glycerol, propylene glycol, and other lipids have the potential to disrupt the natural function of lung surfactants, leading to lipid accumulation in the lungs and, in severe cases, lipid pneumonia.

Nutrient Content

Macro-nutrients like nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium are crucial mineral elements required by plants in substantial quantities for robust growth.


Crop contamination can lead to devastating crop failures and significant economic losses.

Shelf Life and Stability Testing

Over time, environmental factors such as temperature, lighting, air, and humidity can exert an impact on the quality and integrity of cannabis and hemp products.
