To confirm the purity and potency of all medicinal and recreational cannabis allotted for sale, the products must be put through an extremely rigorous chemical and microbiological testing process. Facilities with an Analytical Testing License will be able to work closely with other licensed cannabis operations in need of product testing for purity, potency, identity and more.
The Analytical Testing License is for facilities that desire legal permission to alter the chemical or physical properties of medicinal and recreational cannabis products for the purpose of testing. Before the new Cannabis Act and Regulations were passed, these activities were covered under a Dealer’s License, in accordance with the Narcotic Control Regulations.
License holders are permitted to possess small amounts of cannabis and alter its chemical or physical properties for purposes of analysis by any means, including with an organic solvent.
