Where there’s water, there’s life… But that can be both a blessing and a curse for those growing and cultivating cannabis. The presence of even minute amounts of moisture in cured flowers can make your products home to potentially dangerous microbial pathogens, especially if stored for long periods of time in dark, warm spaces. This can result in potentially unsafe products as well as making your customers vulnerable to risk.
Our Moisture Content Analysis determines the total mass percentage of water in flower samples with complete accuracy. What’s more, our Water Activity Analysis helps you to determine just how much of the water present in your product is available for microbial activity. Together, these tests allow you to ensure that you have a fully optimized curing process and can help you to understand whether or not your products can be safely kept in long term storage.
It’s absolutely vital to use tests like these to determine potential vulnerabilities within your operations. When going into business for yourself in this highly competitive and exponentially growing industry, nothing is more important than earning the trust of your target market. If someone falls ill as a result of microbial pathogens in your products, this could make you liable to litigation as well as causing potentially critical damage to your business’ reputation.
As more people learn of the potential health and medicinal benefits of cannabis, they may be coming to your products with some trepidation. Reward their trust and you will find a loyal repeat customer in them. Take any chances, however, and you may find yourself losing custom to your competitors, even if their product is inferior to yours.

The cannabis plant might just be both one of the most medicinally potent yet tragically misunderstood items of flora on the planet. All over the world, cannabis has been used in the practice of medicine since ancient times. Cultures divided by centuries and thousands of miles have all recognized and utilized the restorative potential of this wonderful plant. But after decades of prohibition, what was once common knowledge has been lost to many of us in the sunshine state. Fortunately, as cannabis use has been decriminalized, and people have begun to better educate themselves using the internet, more consumers than ever are letting go of their preconceptions. In doing so they open themselves up to the potential mental and physical health benefits of the cannabis plant and the products derived from it
In light of this, a diverse and thriving industry has arisen to cater to the growing market of medicinal cannabis users. Yet, although this has opened up numerous opportunities for enterprising people keen to capitalize on the increased awareness of cannabis-savvy consumers, this also brings a great responsibility to safeguard the wellbeing of trusting customers.
Whether manufacturers deal exclusively in flowers or in derived products like edible baked goods, vaping products or topical ointments, it behoves them to take steps to ensure that their products meet the exacting standards that make them safe for consumers. If just starting out (or considering starting out) in the fast-growing cannabis industry, you may be unsure of what legal standards your product needs to meet. What’s more, you may not know which tests need to be carried out to ensure full compliance with appropriate legislation and safety standards.
… And that’s where we come in!
