    profiles. Terpene analysis is crucial for differentiating between strains of cannabis, as terpenes
    have a major influence on the medical and psychological effects of a plant.
  • Loss on Drying: this test is exactly what it sounds like: the amount of moisture in your sample.
    Full cannabinoid profiling, including 16 of the most common cannabinoids
  • Residual Solvents: a residual solvent analysis is important for any highly-concentrated forms of
    cannabis. When butters, oils, wax, and shatters are created, solvents are used to extract the
    cannabinoids from the physical plant matter. This test detects trace-level chemical residues
    that may remain after the production of these extracts.
