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 Portland reports on the following cannabinoids:


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


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.


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


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


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.


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


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


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.


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. 


Cannabidivarinic acid (CBDVa), found in trace amounts, is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid and the precursor to CBDV.


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


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


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.
