Five products were tested against their label claims using the Cann-ID Potency Testing Platform and compared to 3rd party COAs. In all cases where 3rd party COAs were available the Cann-ID test results agreed within 10%. This between-lab agreement of less than 10% was considered “Excellent” in an analysis performed by Leafreport . The Cann-ID results agreed within 7% of the stated label claim for Products 1, 2, 4, and 5. Product 3 did not provide a 3rd party COA with their product and the Cann-ID results show the dosing to be approximately 30% above the stated label claim. Since there are no gradations on the dropper, it is difficult to accurately dose using Product 3.
Cann-ID Potency Testing Platform was successful in verifying the label claims of five hemp-based consumer product goods (CPGs). The standard sample prep and analysis protocols included in the Cann-ID Potency Testing Platform were extended to include olive oil, spray, hempseed oil, soft gel, and gummy matrices.
Currently, there are many concerns about cannabis products on the market that do not agree with their stated label claim . Whether this is due to inaccurate formulation of the product or poor dosing control, a lack of rigorous internal quality control erodes both customer and regulatory faith in all segments of the quickly growing cannabis market. To maintain trust between all stakeholders in the industry, accurate and robust hardware and software solutions are required to verify product consistency, and ensure quality checkpoints are met in-house. This report shows that Cann-ID Potency Testing Solution can be deployed with confidence for quality control and formulation verification for a wide array of cannabis infused consumer product goods.
