FORGOT YOUR DETAILS?

Services We Offer

Whether you are a user, producer or grower of cannabis or experiment with cannabis products, you need to know that your product is of the desired quality. Qure offers testing of anything cannabis-related, from simple potency, to cannabinoid profiling, to terpenes and residual solvents. Services such as mycotoxin, trace elements, pesticide and microbial testing will soon become part of our portfolio.

The growing recognition by authorities that cannabis is a valuable source of industrial material, food and medicine coupled with the potential for cannabis cultivation to be a key economic driver for reconstruction after Covid-19, creates an urgent need for the cannabis industry to be formalised.

Standards are a vital component of a formalised industry. Standards ensure that all cannabis products on the market – whether raw flower or manufactured products – are safe to use and can be trusted to meet label claims.

Testing for the good things

Potency Test

The potency test is internationally defined as test of the main components: THC and CBD.

The potency test gives you an overview of the potency of your strain/product, whether for medicinal or recreational use. This test can be done on bud or concentrates.

The information we give you: The potency test will give you a result for the content of cannabinoids THCA, THC, CBD and CBDA as a percentage per mass of your total product.

Potency tests can only be done on buds and trimmings; kief; hash; oils and distillates; hydrocarbons and rosins; refined fractions; and isolates.

Cannabinoid Profile

The cannabinoid profile is a more sensitive and detailed test of the following cannabinoids: CBC, CBD, CBG, CBN, Δ8-THC, Δ9-THC and THCV. This test can be done on samples of any form, including edibles.

The information we give you: The cannabinoid profile result will show each of the cannabinoids as a percentage per mass of tested product.

Why test the cannabinoid profile?
Each cannabinoid has certain benefits and different combinations of cannabinoids can result in slightly different effects.

Terpenes

Terpenes contribute to the organoleptic properties (smell and taste) of cannabis and they also have been shown to play a significant role in combination with the cannabinoids in the entourage effect of the plant. Terpene testing can be done on any samples containing cannabis.

Why test for terpenes?
Why do some strains smell like citrus? Why are some strains more woody? It is the terpenes! Find your favourite combination.

THE INFORMATION WE GIVE YOU

The terpene assay gives you a quantitative picture of which of the following terpenes and how much of each are present in your sample:

(-)-α-Bisabolol (23089-26-1)
Camphene (79-92-5)
δ-3-Carene (13466-78-9)
β-Caryophyllene (87-44-5)
Geraniol (106-24-1)
(-)-Guaiol (489-86-1)
α-Humulene (6753-98-6)
p-Isopropyltoluene (p-cymene) (99-87-6)
(-)-Isopulegol (89-79-2)
d-Limonene (5989-27-5)

Linalool (78-70-6)
β-Myrcene (123-35-3)
Nerolidol (7212-44-4)
Ocimene (13877-91-3)
α-Pinene (80-56-8)
(-)-β-Pinene (18172-67-3)
α-Terpinene (99-86-5)
γ-Terpinene (99-85-4)
Terpinolene (586-62-9)

Testing for the bad things

Solvents

When doing solvent extractions (e.g. butane, ethanol, etc.) you want to be certain that all the solvent has been removed from the concentrated extract. The solvent test checks if there are any solvents remaining in the product, enabling you to ensure the purest product possible. This test is recommended for any extract that has been in contact with a solvent.

The information we give you: The residual solvent test lets you know if and how much of the extraction solvent is still present in the sample.

Why test for solvents? Is your product safe to use?
This is important for recreational users and critical for people who take cannabis for medicinal reasons (as they take large quantities and their bodies are health compromised). If you are sure there are no residual solvents in your product, you know you are in possession of a pure extract.

We can test the following solvents:

Butane
Methanol
Pentane
Ethanol
Diethyl ether (aka ether)
Acetone
Isopropanol (aka isopropyl alcohol)
Acetonitrile
Methylene chloride (aka dichloromethane)
Hexane
10:11 AM
Ethyl acetate
Chloroform
Cyclohexane
Benzene
10:13 AM
1,2-Dichloroethane
Heptane
Trichloroethane
Toluene
o-Xylene, m-Xylene, p-Xylene
