Residual solvent testing involves the extraction of THC and CBD from cannabis flowers. Common laboratory solvents for extraction can include, but are not limited to: ethanol, n-butane, isobutane, propane, and hexane.

Residual solvent testing is critical to assess the efficiency and quality of your cannabis products.

Cannabis extracts must be analyzed and meet the Cannabis Regulatory Commission regulatory thresholds for any solvents used during the manufacturing process before the extracts can used to infuse products such as edibles, salves, and tinctures.
