08 Sep The Importance Of 3rd Party Lab Testing
The Importance Of 3rd Party Lab Testing
Many states, including Arizona, do not require testing on medical cannabis, this is something we feel is essential for the medical marijuana industry. Testing not only ensures quality standards and potency but also health and safety, it is important for patients to know exactly what is in their medicine. The best way to know your test results are accurate is by viewing them from a 3rd party independent lab. Nature’s Medicines mission is to lab test everything we produce from our 50+ strains of flower to our 70+ selection of concentrates. We strive for full transparency with our patients we want them to know how important potent and pure medicine really is.
Average Flower test scores are getting better in Arizona, but are typically in the low to mid-teens, with better scores in the low 20’s. Testing labs rarely see much above a 23% THC score. Richard Miller, head of independent testing lab Arizona Analytical tells us that “Laboratory testing is essential to the Cannabis evolution. Using proven scientific methods, we help clients produce safe, effective and accurate products. Consumers can be fully confident in our integrity and results, our statement is “We Educate, so you can Properly Medicate.”
Nature’s Medicines is surprised that many other dispensaries do not constantly test products. Our secret shoppers found that they show their best test that even, and often not tested through a 3rd party independent lab, this makes the results questionable and likely inaccurate. Our secret shoppers have caught other dispensaries in bold face lies suggesting that all their medicines score in the mid-twenties, but when they asked for test scores, they claim the scores are not available to patients. Is there any wonder as to why? Nature’s Medicines test scores are accurate and up to date. The strain batch we have on the shelf at that very moment has a matching test score and we are happy to show it to you.
The collective understanding of medical marijuana is ever evolving and we are all learning that Terpenes also matter. The medical benefits of terpenes are significant, for example A-Pinene, a common terpenoid found in Indica strains have shown to be an effective sleep aid, anti-convulsant and anti-inflammatory. Nature’s Medicines tests EVERY batch of flower and concentrates on the shelf for potency, purity, and terpene content. How many dispensaries do you know of test for Terpenes and THC in every batch of flower and concentrate being processed? Know what you’re buying BEFORE you purchase. If they can’t show you test scores, come to Nature’s Medicines in Phoenix or Fountain Hills.
