What Can You Do With An Analytical Testing License?
Analytical Testing license holders are permitted to possess small amounts of cannabis and alter its chemical or physical properties for purposes of analysis by any means, including with an organic solvent.
When it comes to the activities covered under an analytical testing license, there are quite a few to choose from. Analytical testing license holders may conduct activities that include, but are not limited to, any combination of the following testing processes:
- Chemical contaminants (e.g. heavy metals, solvent residues)
- Microbial contaminants (e.g. yeast, molds, bacteria, aflatoxins)
- Cannabinoid content (e.g. delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol [THC], tetrahydrocannabinolic acid [THCA], cannabidiol [CBD], and cannabidiolic acid [CBDA])
- Dissolution or disintegration
- Stability (e.g. if the license holder proposes to include a product expiry date)
- Other (e.g. seed viability testing)
