Homogeneity testing of cannabis and hemp products
The method for ensuring a product or item is homogeneous starts at sampling and continues throughout the testing procedure.
It is important to ensure that the process used to manufacture edible products and other cannabis goods produces uniformity and consistency. Homogeneity testing in analytical chemistry is used to determine the consistency of a production batch of cannabis goods.
Ensuring consistency in dosing is especially important as cannabis items may contain psychoactive delta-9 THC. Homogeneity testing also safeguards from pockets of pesticides or residual solvents in manufactured goods. This testing, not only ensures consumer safety, but also creates brand loyalty.
