How Important Is Cannabis Testing?
If you are offered with a bowl of strange smelling, purple substance and tells you to eat it because it is delicious, would you obey them immediately without knowing what it is? You certainly wouldn’t. Take the advice that I am about to give you with love, if your answer to the offer is a straight no. Until you know that it is something safe to have, never put it inside your mouth. This advice applies to a lot of situations including the consumption of cannabis which was just recently been introduced in the market with its many benefits so there is still no legalization about this product and it is still not regulated federally. The scientific process of cannabis testing is able to determine the various levels of chemicals and compounds that are present in the product, that is why whether it is beneficial or not, this method is still important. Ay unwanted effects and harmful substances are surely not included in the products that are tested, and the customers have all the right to know this.
What makes testing so important?
The agricultural industry is full of folks who use pesticides, and growing the cannabis plant is no exemption at all. Killing living organisms that are found on the plant are done with pesticides-toxic chemicals like insecticides, fungicides, and herbicides, that is why even if they are handled properly, they still pose danger to our health as well as to the environment. There is a possibility that unsuspecting consumers may experience the risks that are brought about by lack of proper testing of the cannabis industry.
There is a lab considered to be a pioneer of the testing industry which tests the cannabis plant based on its residual solvents, potency, terpenes, pesticides, and microbial contamination by measuring the different levels of compounds that are present in the plant. Nevertheless, this process of testing is not what is being followed by all labs. There are labs that concentrate only on the testing with the use of pesticides. While some are only trying to look for molds in the product. There are also some labs that are able to test many things only because they have the proper equipment and procedures. As a result, some consumers want to know who will be doing the testing and what kind of testing will they be doing, aside from the fact that demand for excellence in testing is required.
Therefore, what will actually be tested?
The one who measured the levels of the following components that are found in the cannabis plants are the best cannabis testing:
Cannabinoids, residual solvents, microbial contamination, terpenes, and pesticides.
Before coming up with any decisions, make sure you have a lot of knowledge about what you are going to put in your mouth.
