Under the Cannabis Act & Regulations, applicants are required to obtain a license issued by Health Canada in order to conduct activities relating to analytical testing involving cannabis. Therefore, individuals and corporations who wish, for the purposes of testing, to possess cannabis and to alter the chemical or physical properties of this cannabis by any means for the purposes of testing, may apply for an Analytical Testing License.
An Analytical Testing License is useful to confirm the purity and potency of all medicinal and recreational cannabis allotted for sale, as these products must be put through an extremely rigorous chemical and microbiological testing process. Analytical Testing license holders are able to work closely with cultivators and processors, as both of these license holders require the services of a testing laboratory.
The application for an analytical testing license is not as extensive as that of a cultivation or processing license application, however there are still some important requirements that need to be met, as well as documents that need to be included with the application. Security measures for Analytical Testing license holders are more relaxed, as there will only be a small quantity of product allowed on-site at any given time.
