InfiniteCAL is a BCC licensed analytical testing laboratory. We do not cultivate, produce, process, distribute nor sell cannabis or cannabis products.

InfiniteCAL offers safety and compliance testing services to cannabis industry professionals throughout California and CBD product manufacturers nationwide.

With passage of the Adult Use of Marijuana Act in 2016, the State of California now requires safety and dosage testing of both recreational and medical cannabis and cannabis products. Under the current Bureau of Cannabis Control Emergency Regulation Text (11/16/2017), the required testing will roll out in three phases starting with Phase I on January 1, 2018 and continuing with Phases II & III beginning in July 2018 and January 2019.

The laboratory shall test each representative sample for the following: (1) Cannabinoids; (2) Foreign material; (3) Heavy metals; (4) Microbial impurities; (5) Mycotoxins; (6) Moisture content and water activity, if applicable; (7) Residual pesticides; (8) Residual solvents and processing chemicals, if applicable; and (9) terpenoids, if labeled on product packaging.

The current draft regulations require laboratory personnel to perform representative sampling for all regulatory compliance testing.

Sample minimums for quality assurance testing depends on the sample type and analysis:

*For wet hemp samples that require drying, 10-15 grams (depending on how fibrous the sample is) is needed to account for mass lost during drying.
**For any concentrate in a vape cartridge, double the quoted minimum amount needed as we can only retrieve about half of the material in the hardware.
 
These are general sample minimums. Science is not always perfect, and we may need to request more in order to verify results. If you feel comfortable providing more sample than requested, we will not decline additional material.

For a harvest batch, regulations require that a sample weighing 0.35% of the total harvest batch weight at minimum be taken from each pre packaged or unpackaged batch. However, the lab may need to collect a larger sample in order to complete all required tests. Each harvest batch can weigh no more than 50 pounds. For manufactured cannabis products such as vape cartridges or edibles, the required samples are measured in units, and the number of units required for testing varies depending on the overall size of the product batch. Please refer to the Sample Minimums for compliance testing located on the QA/Compliance testing page. For specific questions regarding your product, please contact the lab or your assigned account manager.

Due to the variations between quality assurance and compliance requirements, please contact a lab representative for detailed instructions.

Yes, we have sample technicians pick up throughout the entire state multiple times a week. Please contact us to make arrangements.
