Third Party and Full Panel testing is critically important to ensure the quality and safety of hemp products.
'Full Panel Lab Tested' is testing for both potency and purity.
Potency measures the concentrations of cannabinoids and terpenes, the medicinal components of cannabis.
Purity is testing for contaminants and residuals - i.e. the stuff you don't want in your cannabis.
I have written several blog posts on both third party and full panel testing that provides explanations and the reasons why these are so important.
Many companies ‘lab test’, yet only test for potency. To ensure the safety of our consumers, we always do full panel testing.
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.
Our Clean Green Certification requires in depth testing for persistent pesticides, herbicides and fungicides. Before we are approved to plant our crops, our soil samples are tested at a California ISO certified agricultural testing facility for more than 70+ compounds. This testing is far more comprehensive than what a cannabis testing facility can and does test for post planting and harvest, offering a more in depth analysis of our fields by testing for compounds that could have been sprayed, used or migrated long ago.

Each individual product is again tested even further. Each individual product’s lab testing/COAs are available on the product page itself.
To view labs on each product, click on the individual product itself on our product page.
Please email email@example.com for purity testing on the products currently with potency testing.
Here at Nurse Grown Organics we use ProVerde labs as our third-party testing facility. Visit ProVerde for more information on our ISO Certified Lab. ProVerde laboratories has been accredited in accordance with ISO / IEC 17025:2005
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.
