When growing, cultivating and curing raw materials as well as when manufacturing products, it’s essential to ensure a controlled environment. Otherwise foreign contaminants can make their way into your products. If you’re new to the industry, you may be surprised by how easily a wide range of foreign materials can get into your products and the materials from which they are made.

That’s why we offer a comprehensive Foreign Material Screen to ensure that your flowers, concentrates, tinctures, topicals, edibles and other any other cannabis- derived or infused products are free of any potentially harmful contaminants. 

Despite your best efforts, foreign materials can still work their way into your products. That’s why we test for:

  • Hairs
  • Molds
  • Insects
  • Excreta
  • Cinders
  • Sand
  • Dirt and soil

Exposure to these contaminants could result in health risks for your clientele and the possibility of a stain on your brand and professional reputation. 

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 all potentially harmful foreign materials. Your customers’ well being and your reputation may well depend on it. 

Nothing is more important in business than your reputation. Remember that many of your customers will be taking a huge leap of faith in your brand and your products. They’re entrusting you with their health. If they can’t trust you to deliver a safe product, you may find that they flock to your competitors. 

How can we help?

The good news is that you can trust CannaSafe Labs to bring you the reliable testing services you need to ensure that your products are safe and reliable enough to build a reputation upon. We make it quick and easy to submit products for testing so that you can respond to the results in a decisive and agile way.

Finally, people are waking up to the potential health benefits of cannabis and cannabis-derived products. This miraculous but misunderstood plant is finally getting its due all over the country. Of course, medicinal cannabis use is nothing new. Since ancient times, civilizations all over the world have used cannabis in their medicines. Over the centuries, the humble plant has done  a great deal to alleviate pain, suffering, sadness and anxiety in every corner of the globe. Here at home, however, the blinkers are only just starting to come off after an age of prohibitionism. 

As numerous states have decriminalized the medicinal use of cannabis, the rise of digital communications technology has also made it much easier for consumers to educate themselves and separate the myths from the facts. These two factors have given rise to a fast-growing industry in which enterprising people from a wide range of backgrounds have begun to grow and cultivate the cannabis plant and use it to create a wide range of products. With an increase in consumer demand comes an ever-pressing responsibility for manufacturers to ensure that the products they manufacture are as safe and ethically sound for their consumers as possible. 

Manufacturers of cannabis products need to comply with strict regulations in order to ensure their customers’ safety. If you’re new to running a business in this industry or are thinking of starting one up, you may be unsure of what legal standards your products need to meet or how you can demonstrate to relevant authorities that they fulfil their obligations. 

Get it wrong and your business and your customers could become vulnerable. But don’t worry… that’s where we come in! Whether you’re selling flower, tinctures, edibles or topical oils, we’re here to help you to ensure that your products meet the necessary stringent safety requirements.
