Importance of Testing in the Recreational THC Market
by Douglas Suraci·
The legalization of cannabis has been sweeping across the world with more and more countries and states legalizing both medicinal and recreational marijuana usage. With this massive growth, however, comes the need for safe and consistent production of cannabis products. Testing cannabis products is essential to ensure that they’re safe for human consumption.
Why Testing Cannabis Products is Essential
Testing cannabis products is essential for several reasons. First and foremost, testing ensures that the product is safe to use. Cannabis plants can easily absorb heavy metals and pesticides from the water and soil, which can be harmful to humans if ingested. Testing ensures that these harmful substances are not present in the final product.
Secondly, testing ensures that the product is consistent in its potency. THC and CBD levels can vary greatly from plant to plant, and even vary from one section of the same plant to another. Consistency in potency is crucial to customers awareness of the exact dosage they are ingesting to accurately gauge their experience. Inaccurate labeling can lead to both overwhelming and underwhelming experiences which should be avoided.
Finally, testing ensures that the product is free from any contaminants like mold and bacteria that could be harmful to the health of customers, especially those with weakened immune systems.
