Cannabinoid Profile (Potency Test)
H Labs can accurately test for the major cannabinoids (THC, CBD and CBN), as well as many of the minor cannabinoids (THCV, CBG, CBC, THCA and CBDA).
Pesticide Residue Analysis
Hemp may contain pesticide residues in significant amounts. Due to the extraction process, hemp-infused products may contain even higher amounts. In order to accurately screen for pesticide residue, H Labs will isolate, separate, identify, and quantify a large number of chemical compounds at extremely low concentrations.
Heavy Metals Screening
H Labs will screen for Arsenic, Cadmium, Lead, & Mercury using sophisticated methodology and extraction procedures, along with an inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometer (ICP-MS)
As with residual solvent and pesticide residue analyses, a microbiological examination is a crucial component of a full safety compliance screen. Hemp is vulnerable to fungi and bacterial diseases; its growing conditions are often ideal environments for microbial growth.
H Labs uses plate enumeration to accurately determine the total amount of microbiological contamination present on a sample of hemp. A “passing” microbiological examination verifies the sample is safe for human consumption.
Additional Testing & Consultation Services
H Labs is in the unique position to offer specialized scientific consultation services. We can offer education, training, internal lab setup, research, and additional testing services such as Terpene Profiling, Foreign Matter Screening, Moisture Analysis & Water Activity.
