Hemp Clippings I Sample Collection in Florida
Work With Florida’s largest In-State
The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (FDACS) does not allow farmers to clip their own samples for testing. Instead, they must enlist approved third-party laboratories to conduct this task. Through ACS’s designation as the largest DEA-registered hemp testing laboratory in Florida, we can collect hemp samples, transport them to our facility, and offer a full suite of hemp analyses including the mandated THC potency requirement. We also test for common contaminants, including pesticides, heavy metals, molds, and bacteria.
Are My Results Reported to the State?
Under Florida law, laboratories must report all mandated THC tests to the FDACS to prove the plot contains less than 0.3% THC. However, R&D tests including contaminant analyses will not be reported.
Trust in Our Experience & Protocols
ACS is a DEA-licensed laboratory with 10 years of clinical testing experience. We are well-versed in FDACS’s sample collection guidelines and we guarantee swift, compliant results.
Get Potency Test Results Quickly
As a Florida based laboratory, we can easily drive to any farm in the state, collect samples, and safely drive them directly back to our facility the same-day. We set you up in our secure customer portal. You are notified of your test results and they are published in the portal. We’re available to review your results over the phone as well.
What If My Samples Fail the
Mandated THC Test?
If your sample tests above the legal THC limit, you have options. You may work with ACS to retest samples from the same lot. If the test shows similar results, you will submit samples to the FDACS laboratory for final testing.
