Official Regulations

Ohio State Compliance Testing:

ACT Laboratories tests are in compliance with the requirements set forth by the Ohio Department of Commerce Medical Marijuana Control Program(MMCP). When a sampling event is scheduled, a trained Sample Selection Specialist will arrive at your facility equipped with the tools necessary to take a representative random sample from the parent batch. The amount of product needed for testing will depend on the type of product being sampled, as well as the individual tests requested for that sample. A Chain of Custody (CoC) Form will be signed off on by both parties which captures the tests to be conducted. The selection specialist will then secure the samples and transport them back to the laboratory for analysis. If a sample of cannabis does not pass all state-required tests based on the standards set forth in regulations it must be reformulated, remediated, or destroyed, depending on the nature of the non-conformance. 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 Rules.

Research & Development (R&D) Testing:

Select R&D testing is available per the customer’s request. When our sample selection specialist arrives at your facility they will ask the type of testing to be performed. 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).
