Mycotoxin Testing

 

One of the most prominent dangers to consumers can come in the form of mycotoxins found on or in the cannabis plant and its extracts. Mycotoxins are a secondary metabolite produced by fungi and some molds that readily colonize crops and can cause disease and death when consumed.

 

How We Test for Mycotoxins

 

We test for four aflatoxins and Ochratoxin A required by the BCC be analyzing quantitative polymerase chain reactions (qPCR), allowing us to detect as little as 2 DNA strands.

 

Mycotoxins We Test For:

 

  • Aflatoxin B1

 

  • Aflatoxin B2

 

  • Aflatoxin G1

 

  • Aflatoxin G2

 

  • Ochratoxin A

 

 

All R&D results are unofficial. For information on certified testing please call the lab at (858) 623-2740.

We currently follow activity levels based on the 2018 California Cannabis Regulations. To view these, visit our 2018 CA Testing Regulations page.
