It’s crazy to think that this year, 39 states will have marijuana legalized for medical use. There are 155 million Americans in those states! And as accessibility grows, so too does the need for accurate product testing to ensure safe use.
Of course, not every portion of a product will meet state quality standards. As a good rule of thumb, anywhere between 10 and 20% of a product crop will not be fit for sale. The most common cause of failure is unsafe levels of mold contamination.
What can you do about it? If it’s minimizing the amount of product unfit for sale you care about, testing is a good place to start.
At Pure Cannalyst, we test for mycotoxins using LC-MS/MS (liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry). We look for the five harmful mycotoxins: Aflatoxin B1, Aflatoxin B2, Aflatoxin G1, Aflatoxin G2, and Ochratoxin A. That’s a lot of science-talk, but ultimately the results of our state of the art tests boil down to a yes (it’s ready) or a no (we found something).
The benefits of knowing what’s in your cannabis is two-fold. On one hand, it ensures safety. And on the other—in the event that mold is found—you know where the areas for improvement are. That’s key. Finding something wrong now is a shortcut to finding less wrong the next time.
And that leads to better products, and profits. Confidence too.
To test your cannabis for mold and related mycotoxins, you’re already in the right place.
All the cannabest,
Your Pure Cannalyst Team
