Lab Testing
The Importance of Lab Testing

It is important to lab test cannabis because it can contain bugs, excrement, mold, mildew, and carcinogens. The plant may have been sprayed with radioactive pesticides, and unhealthy plant growth regulators (PGRs) and patients with compromised immune systems can be adversely affected.

As the cannabis industry grows, it is important to incorporate safety standards that are similar to pharmaceutical and agricultural practices to assure that all cannabis medicine is safe for human consumption. Elemental Wellness is proud to lead the industry by testing all of its medicine at certified facilities. Not only do we rigorously screen for bugs, bacteria, pesticides, mold, carcinogens, PGRs, and harmful chemicals, we also thoroughly analyze the concentrations of cannabinoids and terpenoids contained in the medicine, in order to assure not just the safety of the medicine, but the quality and therapeutic effect as well.

  • Visual Inspection
    Right Arrow
    Fail
    All of our flowers are thoroughly inspected by a Bio-Evaluation Specialist. We examine the shape, structure, health and color of the flower and its trichomes, and imperfections such as micro seeds, signs of bug damage, mold, mildew, yeast, and moisture contentmore
  • Visual Inspection
    Right Arrow
    Fail
    All of our extracts are thoroughly inspected by a Bio-Evaluation Specialist. We examine texture,density per gram, color, signs of contaminants including plant and animal matter, and moldmore
  • Visual Inspection
    Right Arrow
    Fail
    All cannabis infused edibles are inspected by our Bio-Evaluation Specialist to determine if the edible is fit for medical use. We look for signs of mold, and susceptibility to spoiling. The packaging must list expiration date and proper safety warnings more
  • Visual Inspection
    Right Arrow
    Fail
    Our Bio-Evaluation Specialist examines all our cannabis infused topicals to make sure they are fit for medical use, and do not show signs of mold or spoiling. The packaging must list dosage, expiration dates, usage guidelines, and safety warnings more

    Right Arrow
    Fail
    The smell and taste test examines how the aromas compare to those within the same strain family, how smooth and flavorful the smoke is, the color of the ash, and the quality of the therapeutic effect. more
  • Smell/Taste
    Right Arrow
    Fail
    The Bio-Evaluation Specialist will smell and taste the medicine to ensure it's flavorful, smooth, clean and safe for medical use. Extracts are typically vaporized, and the duration and strength of the therapeutic effect is analyzed. more
  • Smell/Taste
    Right Arrow
    Fail
    The smell and taste test are paramount in determining if the edible will please the consumer's palate. Our Bio-Evaluation Specialist analyzes the flavor, culinary execution, potency, and therapeutic effect. more
  • HPLC
    Right Arrow
    Fail
    The High Performance Liquid Chromatograph - Mass Spectrometry (HPLC-MS) chemistry technique coupled with a mycotoxin and pesticide analysis are some of the most comprehensive and rigorous cannabis lab tests done today. The HPLC provides us with a report of up to 17 cannabinoids and 10 terpenoids for every topical. more
