Analytical Moisture Balance

Cannabis is vulnerable to fungi and bacterial diseases, and its growing conditions are often ideal environments for these sorts of toxins. Microbial testing is essential to ensure that patients and consumers are not being exposed to harmful contaminants such as: 


Yeast and mold • Coliforms • Aspergillus • Aerobic bacteria • Bile Tolerant gram-negative bacteria • E. coli (pathogenic strains) and Salmonella spp • Aspergillus flavus • Aspergillus fumigatus • Aspergillus niger • Aspergillus terreus
