Cannabis Testing Laboratory Accreditation

ISO/IEC 17025

IAS offers accreditation for cannabis testing laboratories to ISO/IEC Standard 17025 and state-specific requirements. Accreditation is not only necessary to ensure that cannabis testing laboratories have the integrity, reliability, and technical competence necessary to thrive in a heavily regulated environment, but is also required by many regulated states.

Specific testing may include but is certainly not limited to:

  • Cannabinoid testing & content (CBC, CBD, CBDa, CBG, CBN, THC, THCa, THCv, etc.)
  • Pesticides/fungicides/plant growth regulators
  • Residual solvents
  • Microbiological contaminants (mold, yeast, bacteria, etc.)
  • Heavy metals
