In July 2014, Governor Cuomo and the New York State Legislature enacted the Compassionate Care Act to provide a medical marijuana program for the state of New York. The Compassionate Care Act took effect in January 2016 and made medicinal marijuana use legal in New York.

New York State Compliance Testing

  • ACT’s assays are validated to meet the requirements set forth by the NYS Department of Health and the NYS Environmental Laboratory Accreditation Program (ELAP).
  • All results will be reported through our laboratory information management system and submitted to the client and the NY Department of Health.
  • 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.
  • Required NYS Medical Marijuana Testing Reference Methods are found here.

Research & Development (R&D) Testing

  • R&D testing is available per the customer’s request. Cultivators and processors use R&D testing to help improve their processes and products.
  • Since this type of testing is research-focused and the product will not be going to market without passing an additional compliance panel of tests, R&D results are not required to be reported to the state. A CoA will be released to the client through our Laboratory Information System (LIMS).
