Topicals Testing

How Accurate Are The Results?

ACS is rated in the top 5% in the U.S. for hemp and cannabis testing. Our methods are proven and we guarantee precision. Before testing topicals for potency, we meticulously extract the delicate cannabinoids from the product. Then we determine potency through High-Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) using a UV wavelength detector to identify various forms of cannabinoids. This method provides consistent, reliable results that you can only find with a top-rated lab like ACS.

In the last three years we have received 61 Emerald Badges for excellence from the Emerald Test, a nationwide Inter-Laboratory Comparison test.
