CaliGreen offers testing services to cannabis industry professionals throughout Los Angeles and the Southland. Our location is conveniently accessible via the 5, 405, and 101 freeways.

This will depend on the type of testing you’re interested in, how many tests need to be run, and the type of product you’re testing. Please contact us for a price sheet, which you can refer to for specifics on your product and the required sample amount.

For a harvest batch, regulations require that a sample weighing 0.35% of the total harvest batch weight at minimum be taken from each prepackaged or unpackaged batch. Each harvest batch can weigh no more than 50 pounds. For manufactured cannabis products such as vape cartridges or edibles, the required samples are measured in units, and the number of units required for testing varies depending on the overall size of the product batch. Please contact us for specific questions about your products.

Medical patients looking for quality testing for personal use are welcome to come to our laboratory to drop off samples, or we can send a courier to you. For cannabis growers or manufacturers in need of state compliance testing, our laboratory personnel will need to come to you to pick up samples.

Unfortunately, no. Mailing cannabis products is still a federal offense, so we can’t recommend it. Additionally, in order for compliance testing to be considered valid, we need a verifiable chain of custody from your facility to ours to ensure sample integrity. Please contact us if you need courier pick-up.

Fees vary based on distance traveled and number of samples picked up. For a quote, call us at 818-979-9474 or email us at info@caligreenlaboratory.com.
