Our Story

Meet Your Local Testing Partners

We are a group of Mainers with over 100 years of combined experience in quality assurance, Analytical Testing, and Mechanical Processes.

As both medicinal and recreational Cannabis becomes more and more prevalent in Maine, the need for Safety Testing keeps pace.

As an analytical laboratory, we provide reports on products that go out into the marketplace. This helps the State, Clients, and their customers verify that levels of harmful contaminants remain within the limits set by the state.

It’s our mission to provide impeccable service, accurate results, and consistent turnaround times for our clients. We’re proudly serving you as a Mainer owned and operated cannabis lab. We offer all required Maine OCP cannabis testing, using state of the art equipment and cutting edge methods. We look forward to working with you, and customizing solutions to fit your needs.
