Mycotoxins are secondary metabolites that are produced by naturally occurring molds and fungus – living organisms which decompose organic matter. In the context of medical marijuana and its safety to patients and providers, cannabis mycotoxin testing is of vital importance. Mycotoxins can be extremely toxic to humans, particularly in circumstances involving long-term exposure.
AFLATOXIN (B1, B2, G1, G2)
The cannabis plant is an excellent bioremediator, soaking up a large majority of whatever the roots come in contact with. Even at extremely low levels, heavy metals such as lead and cadmium can be extremely hazardous to one’s health.

A cannabis moisture content test measures the water concentration in a marijuana sample. The moisture level of cannabis refers to the percentage of the sample’s total weight that is made up of water. The water concentration, or “moisture content”, of cannabis is a crucial indicator of the potential activity of microbiological contaminants such as fungi, bacteria, and insects.

Whether you are a state-regulated distributor or a medical marijuana patient, it’s important to have a solid understanding of the cannabinoid levels and potency of the products you are selling or ingesting. For many consumers, it all comes down to personal preference and medicinal needs, as some people are seeking specific symptom relief. THC is renowned for its analgesic properties, as well as its ability to help alleviate stress disorders, insomnia, and nausea. Standard Panel includes:
THC, Δ8-THC, Δ9-THC, THCa, THCv, CBN, CBC, CBD, CBDa, CBDv, CBG, CBGa
Over 100 different types of terpenes have been identified in the cannabis plant, with flavor profiles ranging from “cheesy” to “piney.” Not only are terpenes important to flavors, but they are also important as we learn more and more about the medicinal and potentially psychoactive properties of terpenes.
Linalool | Myrcene | Limonene | Caryophyllene | Alpha-Beta Pinene | Humilene | Terpinolene | Bisbolol | Phytol | Camphene
More cannabis growers and suppliers are using plant growth regulators (PGR), sometimes even unknowingly. PGRs are considered controversial, due to the chemical ingredients found in some brands. For medical marijuana users, this has led to concerns over the purity of cannabis products that contain PGRs. Common ingredients in PGRs include:
Ancymidol, Ethephon, and Chlormequat Chloride
Research, published in the Journal of Toxicology, speaks to the importance of pesticide testing in all marijuana products intended for medicinal use. Studies have continually shown that pesticide residues on marijuana can pose significant risks to the immuno-compromised as well as patients grappling with liver disease and other grave ailments that can be exacerbated by toxic chemical exposure. Examples:
Organophosphates, Pyrethroids, N-methyl Carbamates, Piperonyl Butoxide, Abamectin, Paclobutrazol, and cis-Chlordane
