Excelbis Labs screens for all Residual Solvents that is required by the CA Department of Cannabis Control. The Residual Solvents test is essential when testing final product form that contain any amount of concentrate. Solid or liquid cannabis/CBD products are the most susceptible to chemical residue.
These chemicals can pose health-related risks not only from consumption/inhalation, but from fume exposure as well. Research & Development testing is commonly requested throughout production to ensure desired results prior to CA Compliance.
What are Residual Solvents?
Residual solvents are the residue from organic volatile chemicals that are used in the manufacturing and/or preparation of cannabis and CBD products into oils, concentrates and other final product forms.
How we test for Residual Solvents
Homogenize product using exclusive techniques that exceed state requirements. Utilize Gas Chromatography – Mass Spectrometry to separate components and quantify fragments to their respected chemical composition.
