At Steep River, we believe the patient’s health is our number one priority! We undertake comprehensive lab testing of our products to ensure that our clients are not only getting some of the the highest quality medicine available – but it’s also safe. By partnering with SCLabs, we are setting a higher standard for determining strain quality, and gaining a greater ability to analyze medicine for targeting specific illnesses. Lab testing is crucial not just in determining the strength or potency of medical cannabis, but also to ensure that pesticides and adulterants are not present in the flowers.
Safe & Potent Products
As part of our quality measures, we run through a six-step evaluation process which includes conducting microbiological screening to identify the types and levels of any microorganisms (molds, bacteria, etc.) that might be present in the flowers; as well as utilizing HPLC (High-Performance Liquid Chromatography) testing to create cannabinoid and terpenoid profiles that tell us which compounds are available in each strain, and help us determine their flavor profile. In addition, we carefully screen our concentrates for dangerous solvents like acetone, butane, ethane, ethanol, isobutane, isopropanol, methane, methyl butane, propane, pentane, and hexane using Residual Solvent Analysis (RSA), so patients know the quality of the product they are getting. Our six-step process are described in detail below:
