Hemp and CBD Testing


SC Labs is first to create a hemp testing panel that covers a range of contaminants at a national level

Company aims to fill the void of national hemp testing requirements to reassure companies and consumers that products are safe

As an industry, we’ve been advocating for national, standardized, and transparent testing regulations for years now. The government has been slow to respond so we decided it was time to act. The test we’ve created meets or exceeds the requirements of most states and that will give consumers greater peace of mind. No one else can say that right now.

– Jeff Gray, SC Labs Co-Founder and CEO
