Pesticides Test - Massachusetts - GC/TQ

Method Description

The Determination of Pesticides and Mycotoxins in Cannabis and Cannabis-Infused Products by Gas Chromatographyy-Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS) involves a comprehensive approach to extract and analyze contaminants. QuEChERS efficiently extracts pesticides and mycotoxins from cannabis samples, reducing matrix interference. The extracted compounds are then separated and quantified using GC-MS, ensuring accurate analysis. This method is crucial for quality control in the cannabis industry, providing a robust means to detect potentially harmful contaminants and ensuring compliance with regulatory standards. The combination of QuEChERS and GC-MS enhances sensitivity and specificity, making it an essential tool for the safety assessment of cannabis products.

Additional Information
If an incurred residue is detected, it must be validated prior to being reported as a verified residue. A non-verified residue is a presumed detection or estimated concentration. The concentration reported could change with further validation work. Validation of a non-verified residue can be requested within 30 days from the time the residue is reported. Validation testing has a cost of $213 for up to five analytes. Samples will be reported as follows: see chart
