Potency is the testing of the cannabinoid content in hemp and hemp-related products. The cannabinoid called delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the main ingredient in marijuana responsible for its psychoactive, or mood-altering abilities. In combination with other cannabinoids, the amount of THC in marijuana determines the strength of the effect of the drug. ABS Labs, measures 15 cannabinoids using both High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) and Liquid Chromatography Tandem Mass Spectrometry LC-MS/MS technologies.
We can receive and test in or out of state hemp samples. No matter where you are located, we will coordinate the sample pick up on your behalf.
- In State Sample Collection: According to the Texas Department of Agriculture, a sample of a hemp crop must be collected for testing before harvest. The hemp crop should be harvested within 15 days from samples collection. Failure to harvest within 15 days from sample collection will trigger a second and final sample collection. The hemp crop must be harvested within 15 days from the second and final sample collection.
- Although sample testing is only required within 15 days prior to harvest in order to determine if the crop has the appropriate THC level; we recommend routine testing during the growing process in order to mitigate risks and make better decisions with your crop. Testing should be performed early during flower stage on weekly basis thereafter increased accordingly as the THC levels rise.
- Out of State Sample Collection: We can also receive and test out of state hemp samples. We facilitate the entire process by coordinating all necessary sample shipment logistics on your behalf. We also provide clientele with access to cloud based electronic reports and production notifications, ensuring the most transparent high-quality results.
- We understand that not every CBD product should be treated the same and that it is of the utmost importance to ensure integrity of the results. We specialize in potency & cannabinoid profiling on CBD most product matrices. To support these trending matrices, we have successfully developed and validated novel cannabinoids testing methods, on multiple technological platforms (LCMS & HPLC UV), thereby ensuring optimum detection range and selectivity for every product analyzed. We are also continually updating the test menu to follow the latest trend in regulatory standards.
