Many respiratory illnesses and some fatalities have been linked to Vitamin E when inhaled. At Caligreen Laboratory, we strive to make sure products are safe and adhere to the highest standards. That is why we verify that cannabis products are free of this harmful agent.
Creating professional grade cannabis products is as much about cannabinoid potency as it is about its even distribution. An oversight in this area leads to consumer disappointment as the product is unpredictable in its effects. Caligreen Laboratory homogeneity tests provide data to create a reliably dosed product.
Cannabinoid Potency Analysis provides quantitative potency values for 11 different types of cannabinoids in your cannabis and cannabis products, ensuring your products are accurately labeled according to law.
These organic chemical compounds affect the aroma and flavor of your cannabis. Terpene Analysis identifies and quantifies the presence of terpenes including myrcene, limonene, pinene, and up to 21 more.

California law requires that cannabis products be screened for the presence of 66 pesticides, which can be harmful for human consumption. We screen for and quantify the presence of all required pesticides.
Microbiological impurities such as bacteria and mold can affect the safety of your cannabis products. Our Microbial Pathogen Screen tests for harmful microorganisms such as salmonella; E. coli; and A. fumigatus, A. flavus, A. niger, and A. terreus.
Mycotoxins are naturally occurring secondary metabolites produced by fungi that can cause disease or even death in humans. Our Mycotoxin Analysis screens for and quantifies potentially dangerous mycotoxins such as aflatoxin and ochratoxin.
High-quality cannabis and cannabis products should not include adulterants such as hair, insects, soil, mold, or any other potentially harmful substances. This microscopic visual screen ensures your product is free of contamination.
Moisture Content reveals the percentage of water in your flower. Water Activity lets you know how much of that water is available for microbial growth, which can help predict the stability of your products in long-term storage.
Cannabis plants are dynamic accumulators, concentrating minerals and nutrients from the soil. Heavy Metals Analysis detects the levels of arsenic, lead, mercury, and cadmium, minerals known to cause potentially serious health problems in humans.
