Laboratory & Testing
Medical Cannabis Testing Lab Licenses:
The Utah Department of Agriculture and Food is now accepting applications for testing labs.
The Independent Cannabis Testing Laboratory Rule (R68-30, page 7) outlines the qualification for licensure as a testing laboratory. The rule defines security, inventory control, and employee registration requirements. It also requires labs to follow good laboratory practices and testing standards, and practices that are to be followed in the testing of cannabis and cannabis products.
The Quality Assurance Testing rule (R68-29, page 4) defines the tolerance/ limits of residual solvents, pesticide residue, heavy metals, microbials, and other contaminants that are allowed in cannabis and cannabis products. Exceeding the set levels will result in the destruction of the product.
