How Accurate Are The Results?
Our methods overcome the challenges of edibles testing and guarantee precision. Before testing edibles for potency, we utilize what’s known as a cryogenic grinder or freezer/mill, where we flash-freeze and pulverize the edible to homogenize it. This method provides consistent, reliable results, and we have the awards to prove it. For the last 4 years, we have received badges for excellence in edibles potency from the Emerald Test, a nationwide Inter-Laboratory Comparison test.
Edibles Contaminant Testing

Am I Required by Law to Test for All of the Above Contaminants?
According to Florida’s Hemp guidelines, you must test edible products for contaminants, including residual solvents, pesticides, microbial matter, mycotoxins and heavy metals. Glyphosate is not legally required today, but this widely used herbicide made headlines as the primary toxic chemical in Monsanto’s Roundup fertilizer and is an important part of our full panel test. For medical marijuana products, Florida has more stringent safety limits but generally requires the same type of tests.
* Also note, the list of required contaminants and their allowable safety limits will depend on the state you are in.
Safety & Compliance Testing
ACS tests for pesticides and contaminants in accordance with Florida’s guidelines. These standards encompass the most toxins of any state’s rules and outline the maximum levels of each contaminant that are safe for human consumption. We test hemp and cannabis edibles to identify potential sources of contamination that can compromise human health and prevent your ability to legally sell the product. ACS also exceeds third-party laboratory quality requirements through our ISO/IEC 17025:2017, CLIA and DEA accreditations. But we don’t stop there.
At ACS Laboratory, we test hemp products to uncover all the compounds that make up the therapeutic profile of the plant, along with their flavors and fragrances. Beyond THC, we can determine the potency of up to 15 additional cannabinoids like CBD, CBDA, CBN, CBG and THCA. Most importantly, we tailor our testing approach to a particular product on hand.
For edibles, we recommend:
