Batch Consistency, not single flower accuracy
The industry-standard testing technology, high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), is extremely accurate (assuming the analysis is conducted by a skilled technician, on a calibrated device, applying a validated testing protocol, at an ISO 17025-certified laboratory). But what if you happen to test the least potent flower in a batch? Ultimately, to achieve a representative potency number for an entire cannabis batch, we must average the results of multiple tests. Yet HPLC is too slow and too expensive for this kind of process.
