About

Cannabis is our livelihood. Our business is made up of cannabis enthusiasts that happen to be chemists, microbiologists, researchers, and senior leaders with extensive knowledge of the pharmaceutical industry. One thing we all have in common is our passion and genuine interest in the benefits of cannabis and ensuring product safety for patients and consumers. As former patients, we recognized a need for providing a safe and effective product to patients in need of medicine and proper dosing. We put our expertise to work with every sample we test to ensure purity. As a business, it is our mission to protect and educate medical cannabis patients by delivering the most reliable test results in the cannabis industry, and through valuable relationships fostered with our clients and communities.

We have been operating in the cannabis space since 2010, and our first state-licensed laboratory opened in Morton, Illinois in 2015. Since then, we have expanded and grown into a multi-state operation with laboratories operating independently across the Midwest. Our labs are in full compliance with state law and we work closely with regulators as we elevate cannabis testing standards nation-wide. Each location is accredited to the international standard ISO 17025:2017. For the purposes of cannabis testing, this ensures our methods are fully validated and independently reviewed.
