Mycotoxins are naturally occurring toxins found in common molds and fungi such as black mold. Mycotoxin-bearing molds are often found on a wide range of different crops and foodstuffs including cereals, nuts, spices, dried fruits, apples, coffee beans and, of course, cannabis flowers and derivative products, especially under warm and humid conditions.
No matter how sure you are of your production methods or your storage facilities, it’s in your best interests to make absolutely sure that your products are free of harmful mycotoxins. Our comprehensive Mycotoxin Analysis detects and quantifies any dangerous mycotoxins that might be present in your products. We can apply our analyses to a wide range of products including flowers, concentrates, tinctures, topicals, edibles and virtually any other kind of cannabis-infused products.
Ingesting or inhaling mycotoxins can have a range of ill-effects on human health including sickness, nausea and vomiting. Symptoms against which you must protect your customers at all costs.
When going into business for yourself, no matter what your chosen industry, your reputation is everything. And in this fast-paced and increasingly competitive industry that’s more true than ever. Your customers need assurances that they can entrust their health and wellbeing to the products you provide.
Many of your customers will be taking their first tentative steps towards realizing the health and medicinal benefits of cannabis products. They may do so with some trepidation and that’s why it’s essential that they be able to trust in you and your products.
If they can’t you could well lose potentially loyal customers to your competitors. Even if their products aren’t as good as yours.

We live in a new and enlightened age. An age where the myths, misconceptions and outright untruths about cannabis are finally withering under the light of scrutiny. For centuries civilizations all over the world have understood the potential medicinal benefits of cannabis. The products derived from this incredible plant have helped to alleviate pain, suffering and anxiety all over the world for centuries. Until relatively recently, we have lived in an age of prohibitionism, and that knowledge was lost to generations. However, as numerous states have decriminalized the medicinal use of cannabis, and people are better educating themselves through online research this has given rise to a nascent but fast-growing industry. All over the country, entrepreneurially minded people have begun to grow and cultivate this special plant and use it to manufacture a wide range of medicinal products. And as more consumers are drawn to their products, it behoves manufacturers to meet the growing demand while also ensuring that their products are as safe and ethically sound as possible.
If you’re thinking of starting up a business in this industry, or whether you’re already selling whole flowers, edible goods, tinctures or topical oils, your products need to meet exacting standards to ensure the safety of your consumers. But if you’re new to the trade, you may be unsure of what legal standards your product needs to meet. Likewise, you may have no idea how to prove to the relevant authorities that your products are safe to go to market.
Don’t worry… That’s where we come in!
