I should have paid better attention when I took Chemistry in high university.
It feels appreciate I lack basic expertise regarding chemicals in addition to how they toil in the natural world.
I find it incredibly fascinating when our cousin visits in addition to tells us about his time laboring in the testing lab. He is emplotted by a company that does purity testing for both the legal hemp industry in addition to the legal cannabis industry. It’s always interesting hearing him talk about getting the samples from the multiple companies in the state that use their services. The companies selling hemp use the lab tests as a guarantee to their clients that the products being sold are safe for human consumption. They have more confidence when there’s a lab test guarantee to back it up. But this is even more important with cannabis dispensaries because our state’s rule forbids them from selling any products with a big list of different contaminants. I didn’t even guess that cannabis oil is extracted with over numerous different major solvents. In this state cannabis companies use carbon dioxide, ethanol, butane, propane, in addition to hexane to extract THC in addition to other cannabinoids in addition to terpenes from the marijuana plant to make cannabis oils in addition to concentrates. When their finished products are sampled in addition to sent to these labs for testing, the residual solvents have to be so miniscule that they pose no threat to human consumption or the product cannot be sold. There have been situations where cannabis companies sold products before their lab tests came back setback, thus exposing clients to contaminated products that weren’t safe for consumption in the first site.
