Testing Services Available
Whether you are a grower, processor, or manufacturer, potency testing is necessary. We use high performance liquid chromatography coupled with a tandem mass spectrometry (LC/MS/MS) testing equipment to identify your samples potency. We commit to a 2 business day turn around for potency results.
VerdaSure can provide potency testing for products, oils, and bio-mass. If you are unsure if we can test your product, feel free to call us to discuss. We are continually adding new compounds to our menu, so check back frequently!
Compounds VerdaSure currently tests for:
CBC, CBCa, CBD, CBDa, CBDV, CBDVa, CBG, CBGa, CBN, CBNa, Δ 9-THC, THCa, THCV, THCVa, and Δ 8-THC

Pesticide Testing *Coming Soon*
Would you eat something without knowing what was in it? Pesticide testing helps provide comfort to consumers by allowing them to see the hemp and related products you produce are free of harmful chemicals.
If you are concerned that neighboring crops using pesticides may carry-over during the growing season from wind, animals, and water run-off you may want to test a few times throughout the season so you can take action right away. If you do not have this concern, a single end of year test to show your bio-mass is clean may be all you need. Whatever your needs may be, our pesticide panel will provide an extensive test coverage of 96 different pesticide chemicals to provide confidence in your products for your customers.
VerdaSure’s pesticide panel includes 96 different compounds, making it one of the most extensive compound offerings available. These compounds were selected to meet the Canadian Standards for pesticides & hemp testing.
Mycotoxin Testing *Coming Soon*
No one wants to consume a toxic substance and put their health at risk. Mycotoxins are naturally occurring toxins produced by molds and fungi that can accumulate in several types of crops for numerous reasons. There are several hundred mycotoxins identified, but only a few have been seriously studied due to their serious effect on peoples health.
Aflatoxins are among the most poisonous mycotoxins and can cause serious detriment to a person’s health. Aflatoxins have been shown to be genotoxic, meaning they can damage your DNA and cause cancer!
To minimize the risk of mold growing on your crop, and in turn the potential for mycotoxins to form, it is important you properly dry your material, and maintain that dry state. To ensure your bio-mass and products are toxin free, VerdaSure offers a panel that tests for several toxins potentially seen in hemp.
Mycotoxins VerdaSure currently tests for:
Aflatoxin B1, Aflatoxin B2, Aflatoxin G1, Aflatoxin G2, Ochratoxin
Still want to know more?
For the 2020 growing year, we will continue providing accurate & reliable potency testing. You can view a mock report here!
Later this year we will be offering an extensive pesticide panel, as well as a mycotoxin panel.
We’re learning with the hemp growing community. Are there tests you’d like us to run? We’d love to learn more about your interest and the value those tests can bring to you and your customers.
How VerdaSure technology is better
Conventional testing separates compounds and then measures them using light energy. We use a special type of highly sensitive and specific testing methodology to assess your samples – the same testing methodology used by the WI DATCP lab. Our facility supports more than 50,000 clinical decisions a year so we are confident that we can deliver the same level of expertise to you. See more about this method at this link.
Supporting agricultural tradition
US Farm Bills in 2014 and 2018 reintroduced hemp agriculture to much of the United States. State rules also brought regulations and parameters that did not exist in the 1920s. As such, today’s growers are re-learning some lost agricultural practices for hemp and can apply new knowledge, methods and information.
During this learning phase, more knowledge can mean more power and improved understanding for next year about varieties, growing conditions and even microclimate effects on your own land.
We suggest/recommend buying a kit (series of 3 or 5 tests) for every distinct crop you are raising. Run your first test at bloom to establish a THC and CBD baseline; then check weekly thereafter for the best characterization of each crop.
We will showcase multiple samplings of the same crop in an easily digestible report and graph helping you determine your next steps. Get the most information and confidence to determine your optimal harvest time!
Not sure you need to monitor throughout the growing season? Our single test option can give you confidence quickly while you wait for the state sampling to send results.
