Lab Analysis

Awareness of  the potency and ratios  of medical cannabis is imperative allowing  patients to choose the correct medication for their individual needs, and affords the patient an opportunity  for titration of  the dose, (determining how much to take).

 

With traditional  medicine, potency of any particular drug is clearly stated on the label, and verified so one knows the exact dose. Today’s standards fall well short in the case of medical cannabis.   Potency Testing enables patients to know the amount of the active ingredients in each sample  so they can be confident they are administering an appropriate dose. Taking the correct amount of medication, and utilizing the proper ratios of cannabinoids, can bring welcome relief to one’s symptoms; however taking too much, too little or improper ratio can have adverse side effects and actually complicate ones therapeutic outcome.

MI Canna Labs  analyzes  for the major active compounds present in medical cannabis:

  • Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) The main psychoactive component
  • Cannabidiol (CBD) A non-psychoactive important for pain relief and other health related effects
