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.

Quality-control testing services

We offer a package for all tests that are required for compliance. But you can also request additional tests and analysis to be performed concurrently. Below are details about what’s included in each of our tests and screens.
