What does “Testing” mean?

Since legalization testing labs have become more prominent in the cannabis industry. Testing is important for understanding what is in flower, edibles, and concentrates. A testing lab will use high-level chemistry like mass spectrometry and gas chromatography to pinpoint how much THC, CBD, terpenes, and other desirables are in the products. Labs will also test for undesirables like mold and pesticides. Each state requires different tests for legally sold cannabis products in order for them to be considered compliant by state law.

Example usage:

“Testing makes me confident in the quality of the bud I’m smoking.”
