EL cannabinoid accuracy

EVIO Labs is the nation’s most trusted provider for cannabis potency testing – leading the industry in methodologies and exceeding mandated standards in applicable states. We use Ultra-High Performance Liquid Chromatography (UPLC) that goes beyond testing the level of THC and provides detailed profiling of all major cannabinoids.  All EVIO Labs locations ensure that the test results are accurate with regular third party proficiency tests, and frequent inter-lab testing.

EVIO Labs Berkeley reports on the following cannabinoids:

Δ9-THC

Δ9-Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the primary chemical responsible for most of the psychoactive effects associated with cannabis.

THCa

Tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCa) is the most abundant cannabinoid found in high-THC cannabis strains. THCa is found in raw and live/fresh cannabis but is progressively decarboxylated to THC with drying and heating.

Δ8-THC

delta-8-Tetrahydrocannabinol (Δ8-THC) is an analogue of, but with a lower psychotropic potency than, it's famous sister delta-9-Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). 

THCV

Tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV) is the decarboxylated form of THCVa and is found in trace amounts.

THCVa

Tetrahydrocannabivarin Acid (THCVa) becomes present during the breakdown process of CBGVa by the THCV synthase. At that point, THCVa can be decarboxylated with heat or UV light to create THCV.

CBC

Cannabichromene (CBC) is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in trace amounts in cannabis. 

CBD

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid with a wide scope of medical applications.

CBDa

Cannabidiol acid (CBDa) is the precursor to CBD, and exists in growing plants. It isn’t until the plant is cut, dried, and heated that CBD is formed.

CBDV

Cannabidivarin (CBDV) is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid that is found more prevalently in indica strains, specifically landrace indica strains, and strains that are lower in THC. 

CBG

Cannabigerol (CBG) is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in low concentrations.

CBGa

Cannabigerol Acid (CBGa) is the precursor to the three main cannabinoid lines: tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA), cannabidiolic acid (CBDa), and cannabichromenic acid (CBCa).

CBN

Cannabinol (CBN) is formed when THC is exposed to oxygen and UV light/heat. It is not usually found in high concentrations in properly stored cannabis. CBN is a very weak psychoactive cannabinoid.
