From grow-ops to growth ops

Being at the forefront of an emerging cannabis industry, growth is all around us. And its potential is unlimited. Welcome to the big leagues.

Quality-control cannabis testing services for licensed producers.

Every path to success is tested. We can help you with that – literally. Testing for potency, contaminants, pesticides, or whatever you need helps you develop a stronger product. The better the testing, the more confident you can be in its results.
