We are GMP compliant and CALA Accredited to ISO 17025:2017 standards for the parameters listed in our scope of accreditation here.

CARO provides complete regulatory compliance testing for Health Canada’s Cannabis Act – with our data you can be sure that your product is ready to release and distribute to the market. Our full-service Cannabis laboratory in Burnaby BC offers the following testing in Flower, Oil, Concentrates, Distillates, Edibles & Topicals:

The Cannabis Regulatory Package – Become fully compliant for the requirements set by Health Canada.

Cannabis lab testing

  • Potency Profile – THC, THCA, CBD, CBN, CBDA statistics
  • Aflatoxins and Ochratoxins – Two forms of mycotoxins
  • Pesticides – All 96 pesticides listed by Health Canada
  • Heavy Metals – Arsenic, Cadmium, Mercury, and Lead
  • Foreign Matter – Determine either the absence of pests or evidence of spoilage in your
    product
  • Microbiology – Total yeast and mold count, total aerobic count, Bile-tolerant Gramnegative, E. Coli, Salmonella app.

 

In addition to the full Health Canada suite, CARO also offers additional testing services designed to enhance your understanding of your product:

  • Additional Microbiological parameters: S. aureus, P. aeruginosa.
  • Terpenes: although not regulated, these oils give Cannabis its variety of aromatic and flavor
    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 includes 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.
