Third Party and Full Panel testing is critically important to ensure the quality and safety of hemp products. I have written several blog posts on both third party and full panel testing that provides the reasons why these are so important. Here are a few highlights:
- To ensure product quality and consumer safety, a full panel lab analysis is necessary.
- Generally, a full panel analysis consists of a minimum of 6 different categorical tests, though this may vary between smokable flower and a processed or finished product. These six tests typically include potency, pesticides, Heavy Metals, Mycotoxins, Residual Solvents, and Terpenes.
- In Vermont, the medical cannabis program allows for in house-testing and only mandates testing for THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) levels. In-house lab testing is susceptible to mistakes, and prone to biases.
- Third party testing is when products are tested in an independent laboratory that has no connection with the grower, manufacturer, company or consumer, and which has no financial stake in the test results.
