In the industry of cannabis, potency testing is integral when choosing which products to invest in. Whether you’re a distributor, manufacturer, or consumer, once you know your product is free from contaminants, potency testing will let you know how psychoactive or medicinal the product your ingesting should be. Everybody is different though so be sure to understand the strain you’re ingesting beyond just the potency because potency will not tell you how Indica or sativa leaning your product is and that is a very important factor. Another part of the cannabis profile that will help determine the sedative or euphoric effects is the Terpenes of the product. Using the two profiles will give you a great idea of the effects from ingesting the product.
Another reason potency testing is used is to find out the strength of a base product such as trim or flowers that are going to be used in edibles or concentrates. Using the numbers, you receive on your base product, you can get a good idea of the amount of cannabinoids you will have in your finished product. Our results are based on percentage of a gram, so you can easily extrapolate that out into the numbers you need to continue you manufacturing or other processing.
