Our regulatory compliant test panels meet the testing requirements for cannabis or cannabis products as required by the Cannabis Regulatory Agency (CRA), which includes a laboratory-performed sampling of a cannabis batch to ensure a representative sample is obtained. The laboratory staff member seals the batch and transports the sample back to the lab where the required tests are performed; the exact number of tests is determined by the type of sample being tested.

Cannabis Flower Batch Sizes
The weight of your harvest batch will determine the number of sample increments and the size of your test package. A harvest batch includes flowers, trim, eighth jars, leaf material, and kief.
|Common Batch Size||Increment Minimum||Min Sample Size|
|10 lbs||8||22.68 g|
|20 lbs||16||40.36 g|
|30 lbs||23||68.04 g|
|40 lbs||29||90.72 g|
|50 lbs||34||113.40 g|
- All sampling minimums are set by state, who requires that 0.5% be sampled for testing. To determine this for your particular batch, simply take the batch weight (in grams) and multiply by 0.005 to get an approximation of the minimum we are required to take.
- We always require a minimum of 14 g to run full compliance tests, even if your ‘calculated’ weight is lower.
Cannabis Concentrate Batch Sizes
The weight of your Production Batch determines the number of Sample Increments (0.25 grams) to be included in your sample size. A concentrate product includes concentrates and cartridges.
|Batch Size (lbs)||Number of Sample Increments||Sample Size (g)|
|1 - 2||12||3.00|
|2 - 3||15||3.75|
|3 - 4||18||4.50|
|4 - 10||23||5.75|
Cannabis Infused Batch Sizes
The number of units in your production batch will determine the number of Sample Increments and the size of your Test Package. An infused product includes pre-rolls, edibles, and all other non-concentrate products not naturally produced by the cannabis plant.
|Edible Production Batch Size||Min Sample Size|
|≤ 100 units||2 units|
|101 - 500 units||4 units|
|501 - 1,000 units||6 units|
|1,001 - 5,000 units||8 units|
|5,001 - 10,000 units||10 units|
|≥ 10,001 units||12 units|
- Sampling is conducted on products in final retail form.
