Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to set up an account?  Currently no, but due to state regulations you must be a California BCC licensee.

How much does a potency test cost?  $99 or less.  There is no additional charge for photos, edibles, pickup, etc. You can see more pricing information here or contact us here with questions.

How do I get you the sample? Can I ship it? You can either drop off the sample at our lab, or arrange a free pickup with us if you’re in Southern California. We do not accept samples by mail or common carrier.

How big does the sample size need to be? Small for reference testing.  About 0.5 grams for concentrates, 1 gram for flower, or 2 grams for edibles/tinctures/topicals, per test.  Pesticides testing requires about twice as much sample.  California compliance testing sample size varies per state regulations.

How long does it take to get results?  Usually results for all services turn around in 1 – 2 business days; often faster for many products.  Microbial cultures take approximately 3 business days.
