As a professional extractor or processor, you need data measurements to support real-time business decision-making which impact your performance and profitability. This means you need to have easy, timely and affordable access to reliable data.

The industry needs certified laboratories for regulatory compliance testing, but not to fulfil ever increasing in-house testing needs to support product development, operational and commercial business decisions. Often, the nearest laboratory may be a few hours drive from your facility. Your business cannot afford to wait days or weeks for results.

GemmaCert was established in 2015 with the foresight that as the cannabis and hemp industry matures and competition intensifies, the demand for data and in-house testing will increase.

GemmaCert’s smart system for analysing cannabis and hemp potency, which is being used by professionals worldwide, is now capable of analysing THC and CBD levels in crude (raw) extract. GemmaCert already does so for dry flowers and biomass. With GemmaCert you can analyse:

  1. Biomass before purchase
  2. Crude extract to calculate yield, loss, quality, and consistency
Remember that the biomass you purchase is likely not flower material. While your supplier may present you with a Certificate of Analysis (COA) for potency in the batch based on the analysis of cannabinoid rich flowers, the biomass itself is likely to have a significantly lower potency. If the COA indicates a CBD potency of 13%, the actual CBD potency in the biomass can be much lower at 8%. Keep in mind that the biomass includes other particles, such as the stems and seeds which have almost no cannabinoids, and the leaves also contain lower levels than the flowers.

The only means for you to control the quality of incoming raw material and the yield of your extraction is by in-house testing. One analysis on GemmaCert can save you a lot of money.
