Full Panel Test

 

Licensed growers and processors in the state of Oklahoma are required by law to test all medical marijuana and medical marijuana products in a laboratory licensed by the Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority (OMMA).

Includes:

  • Potency

  • Terpenes

  • Residual Solvents

  • Microbials

  • Pesticides

  • Mycotoxins

  • Heavy Metals

  • Water Activity

  • Moisture Content

  • Foreign Matter/Filth

Potency

 

Potency refers to how strong of an effect a certain marijuana strain will have on the user, whether that be positive or negative, and recreational or medicinal.

Q Cann Labs can identify and quantify 11 different cannabinoids.

Includes:

  • CBDV

  • CBDA

  • CBGA

  • CBG

  • CBD

  • THCV

  • CBN

  • d9-THC

  • d8-THC

  • CBC

  • THCA

Microbials

 

The process of microbial testing includes the identification of potentially dangerous microorganisms and their byproducts. Q Cann Labs tests for multiple pathogens such as Shiga Toxin producing E. coli. Like any agricultural product, cannabis is susceptible to microorganisms that could potentially harm consumers.

Includes:

  • Total Yeast & Mold

  • Salmonella Species

  • Shiga Toxin E. Coli

  • Aspergillus Species

Terpenes

 

Terpenes are aromatic compounds found in nearly all species of plants. These aromatic compounds create the characteristic scent of cannabis strains such as pine, lavender, as well as fresh orange peel.

Includes:

  • 3-Carene

  • alpha-Bisabolol

  • Alpha-Pinene

  • alpha-Terpinene

  • beta-Myrcene

  • beta-Ocimene

  • beta-Pinene

  • Camphene

  • Caryophyllene

  • Caryophyllene oxide

  • D-Limonene

  • Eucalyptol

  • gamma-Terpinene

  • Geraniol

  • Guaiol

  • Humulene

  • Isopulegol

  • Linalool

  • Nerolidol 1

  • Nerolidol 2

  • p-Cymene

  • terpinolene

  • trans-beta-Ocimene

Heavy Metals

 

The most common sources of metal uptake in plants stem from the soil, fertilizers, and nutrients used during the plant's growth cycle. Some metals are considered harmful in high concentrations and could pose a potential health risk to consumers if not identified prior to consumption

Includes:

  • Lead

  • Arsenic

  • Mercury

  • Cadmium

Pesticides & Mycotoxins

 

Pesticides are chemical compounds that many growers and cultivators use to ward off harmful pests, insects, fungus, and microorganisms from their crops. However, some of these substances pose a high health risk for consumers if present in the product over certain concentrations. Q Cann Labs recommends that growers take the time to do the research to understand how different chemicals impact your plants and which products to steer clear of.

 

Mycotoxins are a family of compounds produced by molds like Aspergillus and are known to be severely toxic to humans. Exposure to mycotoxins can compromise the immune system and cause reproductive disorders as well as damage to the liver and kidneys.

Pesticides Include:

  • Abamectin

  • Azoxystrobin

  • Bifenazate

  • Etoxazole

  • Imazalil

  • Imidacloprid

  • Malathion

  • Mycobutanil

  • Permethrin

  • Spinosad A

  • Spinosad D

  • Spiromesifen

  • Spirotetramat

  • Tebuconazole

Mycotoxins Include:​

  • Aflatoxin-B1

  • Aflatoxin-B2

  • Aflatoxin-G1

  • Aflatoxin-G2

  • Ochratoxin-A +H

Residual Solvents

 

During the process of creating distillate or other concentrates from cannabis plant material, industrial grade solvents are used to strip the cannabinoids from the plant matter. Certain solvents can pose a harmful health hazard if left in the finished product in high concentrations.

Includes:

  • Acetone

  • Benzene

  • Butane

  • Butane 2-3-dimethyl

  • Butane 2-methyl

  • Cyclohexane

  • Heptane

  • Isobutane

  • Isopropyl Alcohol

  • Neopentane

  • n-Hexane

  • Pentane

  • Pentane 3-methyl

  • Propane

  • Toluene

  • Total Xylenes

Moisture Content

 

Moisture is an important process parameter for the processing of cannabis. It not only effects shelf-life and taste sensation but can also affect the concentration of THC and other analytes in cannabis products, as moisture is a substantial part of the total weight. If the moisture changes, the percentage detected of the THC can also change. However, the total amount of THC remains constant.

Water Activity

 

Water activity is utilized for the safety it provides because of its control of microbial growth and preventing microbial contamination. It is also important for storage stability of harvested buds. In addition, water activity controls the rate of decarboxylation that can lead to the breakdown of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).

What You Need to Know:

Full compliance requires 0.5% of batch weight per sample

  • 10lb batch = 22 grams per sample (10 grams minimum)​

 

Individual Testing

  • ​Potency require 1 gram

  • Terpenes/Residual Solvents require .5

  • Microbials require 2 grams

  • Pesticides and Mycotoxins require 1 gram

  • Heavy Metals require 1 gram

***Turnaround time is 5 business days***

Day 1 of testing begins the next business day after sample is received.
