The Marijuana Infused Products (MIPs) industry has seen significant and rapid growth recently. The creativity of manufacturers in finding ways to infuse products with cannabis for a broader appeal has been fascinating.
The success of these products however, is dependent upon ensuring stability, consistency and meeting stringent health and safety testing mandates. Therefore, homogeneity testing is a key component to a product’s long-term success.
Homogeneity, as it relates to cannabis-infused food and drink, ensures THC is spread throughout a product evenly and not concentrated in any area.
Standing as one of the most common forms of consumption of cannibis and cannibinoids, edibles are a rapidly growing and preferred method of THC delivery for patients and recreational use.
For that reason, any supplier should and MUST ensure consumer and patient safety prior to sales or distribution.
Homogeneity testing is required for all cannabis infused edible products such as brownies, cookies, candies, cakes, and chocolate bars.
With the many inconsistencies around personal reactions to infused products, it is critical that products are tested to ensure potency is defined per portion.
