Harvest Batch Sizes
The sample size must be sufficient to complete all analyses required but shall in no case be less than 0.5% of the weight of the batch. The maximum batch size is 50.0 lbs or 22.68kg.
|Batch Size (lbs)||Batch Size (kg)||Sample Size (lbs)||Sample Size (g)|
SAMPLE SIZE = 0.005 X BATCH SIZE
BATCH MAXIMUM SIZE = 50 lbs
- Sample requires at least 7 grams of plant material to perform all necessary tests.
- Sampler must collect minimum number of increments.
- All harvest batches should be sampled from bulk container for efficiency.
Concentrate Batch Sizes
Includes concentrates, extracts, finished inhalable products, or industrial hemp-derived vapor items. Sample increments are products in final retail form.
|Batch Weight - lbs||Batch Weight - kg||Sample Increment - Primary||Sample Increment - Duplicate||Number of Replicates|
|0 - 3.31||0 - 1.50||1||1|
|3.32 - 6.61||1.51 - 3.00||3||3|
|6.62 - 13.23||3.01 - 6.00||5||5|
|13.24 - 26.46||6.01 - 12.00||7||7|
|26.47 - 55.12||12.01 - 25.00||7||7||1|
|55.13 - 110.23||25.01 - 50.00||7||7||2|
|110.24 - 220.46||50.01 - 100.00||7||7||3|
To calculate the number of replicates required for batches exceeding 100 kg:
Batch weight in kg/50)*1.5, rounded to the nearest whole number.
Infused Batch Sizes
An infused product includes edibles and all other non-concentrate products not naturally produced by the cannabis plant.
|Batch Size||Min Sample Size|
|≤ 50 units||1 unit|
|51 - 150 units||3 units|
|151 - 500 units||5 units|
|501 - 1,200 units||8 units|
|1,201 - 3,200 units||13 units|
|3,201 - 10,000 units||20 units|
|10,001 - 35,000 units||32 units|
|35,001 - 150,000 units||50 units|
