Hi, hoping to get a list of accredited testing labs with good reputations- and what tests are best if there's choices. Thanks!

Steep Hill Arkansas is definitely my recommendation for 3rd party testing. They have a full panel of tests and quantify the most terpenes/cannabinoids that I have seen offered. I have attached an article that the CEO wrote concerning things customers should be aware of when choosing a testing facility. Brandon Thornton, CEO, is originally from Chattanooga, TN and has a doctorate in pharmacy. They have a 48hr wait time once they receive the sample and also have great customer service to help you understand your results.

I looked into the system. It looks great, very good system for testing your final product. I inquired about the cost, not an economical cost for a small grower such as myself. For my production I’m looking for a piece of equipment approximately $1,000 or less (this one is considerably more, I’ll let you all do the research). 

Any suggestions for a “field unit” to test flower? $1k is about the top end I’d like to pay, but for a quality machine that I can have quick results I could go a little higher. The closet I can find for a quality machine is about $13,000. Again, any suggestions?

I’ve not read good reviews on the t2. There was another product that was more expensive that a seasoned grower (nameless)  piloted where you could purchase separate testing chambers... they said don’t waste the money. This will be a big business when it gets off the ground with a decent product... the industry AND police are looking for a good product that’s easy to use and also have accurate results... 0.3% is a very small number so the machines will need to be extremely accurate.

As far as testing is concerned what are you most concerned with?  (After THC level of course)     pesticides? metals? residual solvents ?
OR is the primary concern cannabanoid profile ?

Mainly concerned with thc/cbd levels in the field. I’m not that hopeful for terpenoid testing at home. I’ll send out for that. I just want something to field test quickly for thc/cbd. The terpenoids are important to me, I just want the maximum time in the soil for those to develop. If I was more aware of the thc/cbd levels, I could push the length of grow to allow for the terpenoids to truly develop to their maximum capacity. The pesticides, metals, and solvents I’ll be concerned with when I send for testing. I control those mainly by the soil and feed I put on the plants. I use beneficial bugs bought from arbico organics to control bad bugs. Solvents I’ll test for in my final product.

Late to the party here, but New Bloom Labs in Chattanooga looks promising.  I requested a shipping kit and it was at my door the next day (envelopes, prepaid shipping labels, containers, order forms, etc).  They are a little above the average on potency test pricing but at least they are local and seems like they have been pretty involved in the TN hemp community.
