PORTLAND, Ore., July 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Lightscale Labs announced today the immediate availability of pesticidetesting services for cannabis, joining a short list of accredited laboratories in Oregon offering the full suite of compliance testing required for recreational and medical cannabis products.
Oregon is unique among states that have legalized cannabis for its focus on health and safety. To receive a license to test cannabis, a laboratory must be accredited by the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) and undergo the same scrutiny as environmental labs that traditionally offer food, water, and soil testing. The accreditation process can be lengthy, creating a bottleneck for cannabis production in the state. With its new pesticide testing services, Lightscale Labs has significantly improved that bottleneck.
Recently, the OHA considered relaxing certain testing standards. "It's important to find the right balance," said Ouellette. "We all want to see the cannabis industry grow healthy and strong, and that means keeping lab testing requirements realistic. We hope Oregon will continue to serve as a model for the rest of the country, prioritizing public safety and evaluating the rules as the industry evolves and our scientific understanding improves."
