Cannabis Testing that Blends Science and Service

With C4’s analytical testing services, cannabis businesses gain the confidence that their medications are safe, reliable, and consistent, while patients gain the confidence to ask hard questions and hold the companies they buy from to a higher standard.

Test results are delivered through Confident Cannabis, a simple online system for storing, tracking, and searching past reports. Our team also provides a full consultation and analytical review of the results free of charge to help translate your data into easy-to-understand information you can use to make informed decisions. (Pediatric patient consultations are provided free of charge.)

In addition to testing, C4 works with manufacturers on product development and optimization, and collaborates with cultivators on grow analytics. Services include complete mold/mildew culture testing, viral detection with sentinel plants, and comprehensive analysis of environmental conditions.

Testing of additional compounds and bulk pricing are also available. Contact us for details.

E-liquids

The general perception is that the e-liquids in e-cigarettes and vaporizers are safer than traditional tobacco cigarettes. However, this is not the case if the e-liquid contains artificial flavoring with harmful diketones. Studies show certain diketones can cause a respiratory condition known as bronchiolitis obliterans, which can lead to chronic, irreversible respiratory issues and even the need for lung transplants. C4’s e-liquid analysis detects and quantifies nicotine and/or diketones often found in artificial flavoring, such as acetyl, diacetyl, and acetoin.

Cost

$60/sample for diketone testing, $60/sample for nicotine testing

Processing time
