Why You Need Cannabis Potency Testing that Goes Beyond THC & CBD

There’s no question that the world of cannabis is, in many ways, still in its infancy. Rapid growth occurs at a fast and furious pace, as are the changes to the regulatory protocol, scientific research, legal guidelines, and more. 

Because of this, partnering with a laboratory that’s prepared to stay ahead of the curve is key. Otherwise, you risk falling behind your competitors and rendering your brand outdated. Cannabis potency lab testing is perhaps one of the most critical areas for ongoing innovation, particularly for cannabis growers and producers that hope to achieve staying power.

Consumers expect more

As the everyday cannabis consumer becomes increasingly well-informed, their expectations are on the rise. To meet the demands of your consumers, pursuing expanded forms of testing is vital. No longer is basic potency or THC/CBD concentration enough; instead, your customers are now searching for specific details about all cannabinoids present in your products.

Likely, you’re already aware of the importance that specific cannabinoids can play in the consumer experience, particularly when it comes to shaping a product’s therapeutic effects and unique characteristics. But if you don’t have the detailed testing that allows you to communicate that information to your customers, that knowledge becomes useless. 

Regulations are becoming more complex

As U.S. and Colorado cannabis laws continue to change, expanded potency testing becomes more necessary than ever. Highly detailed potency analyses are essential for legal compliance and can be the difference between continued operations and a devastating regulatory violation. 

If you discover that you’ve chosen the wrong testing provider, making the switch to a better option can be both expensive and time-consuming. Instead, partner with a trusted laboratory from the beginning – one that you can be confident will keep pace with the evolving regulations. 

Your marketing capabilities will increase

To effectively market any product, you must first understand it. With potency testing in Colorado from Nordic Analytical Laboratories, you open your brand to a new level of marketing potential. In addition to ensuring that your products meet the market demand for THC and CBD, you can also utilize the more detailed cannabinoid profiles to target, educate, and connect with more consumers.
