“The industry has been slow to standardize, and many products, when tested, have been shown not to contain the cannabinoid profile listed on their packaging,” said a spokesperson for Cannabis Care. “Unlike these companies, we triple test our products in an independent third party lab to ensure potency… and then we post these results online for everyone to see. We feel this makes all the difference. The new Canadian laws are just catching up to what we were already doing with testing. We’re ahead of the curve and intend to stay there.”
The key to dosing and getting the required effects from a product like cannabis is knowing exactly what it’s made of. How much THC does it have, how much CBD? And the key to knowing what’s in a product is testing.
Dosing is important to patients, no matter what medicine they are consuming. Using too much can be a waste of a valuable medicine, but using too little can be a waste as well since you don’t get the effects you need and paid for.
