These are organic and volatile chemicals that are used along the production of cannabis usually in the extraction process of a flower into the crude.



Residual solvents are toxic and carcinogenic at high levels therefore testing becomes vital as the quality of the products is determined through the process of testing. There are also regulations against volatile organic compounds for a daily dose or ingestion. It is therefore in the interest of the supplier and the client to know what kind of product is being exchanged. LuCan Labs therefore employs accredited methods for sample preparation and analysis as well as to quantify 35 Residual Solvents Compounds using Gas Chromatography Mass Spectrometer coupled to a headspace autosampler to produce only the best results.
