Measuring water activity plays a crucial role in preventing microbial contamination. Water activity is of specific concern with respect to edibles, in addition to storage stability of harvested buds and extracts. Higher water activity levels promote mold and mycotoxin germination, whereas lower levels provide optimal conditions for product sustainability and longer shelf-life.
What is Water Activity?
The measurement of how water interacts with the materials inside a sample at different intervals and temperatures.
How We Test for Water Activity
Homogenize product using exclusive techniques that exceed state requirements. Utilize electrolytic sensor to determine equilibrium of relative humidity. Edibles not to exceed .85 aw. Dry flower not to exceed .65 aw.
