Cannabis heavy metal testing is critical because regardless of where cannabis comes from, it can contain heavy metals. Fertilizer and soils can contain metals. Some of these metals are toxic and known as heavy metals. If heavy metals exist at elevated levels in cannabis, they can trigger a number of health problems.
Heavy metal screening is very important. As mandated by the OMMA, the acceptable limits of heavy metals are measured in the range of parts per million (ppm) per gram.

PureLabs OKC uses the Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry Detector (ICP-MS) to do its heavy metals testing, which offers the best sensitivity and most accurate results for heavy metal tests. Our ICP-MS is capable of detecting metals at sub-ppb trace levels. Combined with the instrument’s specificity, this instrument and methodology yield accurate and reliable results.
Heavy metals have the potential to destroy the quality of cannabis products. They can also be dangerous for consumers and outweigh the true benefits of your products. There is always a chance cannabis could contain heavy metals, even if you grow at home. It can be hard to know what is included in your soil and water and how it impacts your products.
