Illinois State Compliance Testing:

  • Our compliance tests are intended to meet the requirements set forth by the Illinois Department of Agriculture.
  • If a sample of cannabis does not pass a state-required test based on the standards set forth in regulations, depending on the results it could be recalled, or processed into an extract.
  • All results will be reported through the state seed-to-sale tracking system and our Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS).
  • As regulations are subject to change, we encourage you to reference the state’s official website for up-to-date state regulatory requirements to ensure required testing compliance: Official Regulations.

Research & Development (R&D) Testing:

  • R&D testing is available per the customer’s request.
  • Since this type of testing is research-focused and the product will not be going to market the results are not reported to the state, a CoA will be released to the client through our Laboratory Information System (LIMS).


We will schedule a meeting with your team to better understand your business needs and objectives. Based on this discussion we will create a recommendation for you to help reach your safety and compliance goals.
