The Medicine Box - none

The Medicine Box's 3 Phase MDBX Cannabis Testing Certification Process Here at The Medicine Box Cannabis Dispensary in Kanesatake (Oka), we take Cannabis quality and safety of use very seriously. That’s why we’re one of the very few dispensaries in Canada to test our flowers and concentrate products on-site and in our own lab. We decided the only way to ensure the highest quality and transparency was to test everything in-house. That’s why we invested in The Medicine Lab; Creating our very own 3 Phase MDBX Testing Certification Process - a process that looks at a Cannabis’ quality and safety of use through firstly a Microscopic inspection to ensure there is no presence of mold or any undesirable or unexpected presence; Followed by a Toxicity test to evaluate the presence of any non-natural components; And finally passed through a THC spectrometer to evaluate its potency. We believe in using Cannabis as a medicine, so you should feel comfortable knowing that what you are consuming is clean and safe for you. The Medicine Box's 3 Phase MDBX Cannabis Testing Process does that for you. 1st Phase - Microscopic inspection: Our Lab Technician will check for any unwanted foreign additives and bud quality with our 90x zoom stereo magnification microscope. The microscope’s very high resolution allows the technician to easily identify anything that shouldn’t be there. In combination with a high-powered LED light ring for optimal viewing, the protocol checks for rot, mold, unwanted additives such as Fentanyl or Cocaine, and even parasites as well as their residues. The process also gives the tech a good idea of the bud’s quality through a few determining factors, such as the overall trichome quality. Only if the sample receives a passing grade from phase 1 will it be eligible to continue to the next phase. 2nd Phase- Toxins Test: Done through the use of specialized equipment using lateral flow assay that has been calibrated to analyze and detect a total of 66 of the most common toxins, be it hazardous pesticides, insecticides and fungicides. Through a full screening of the product, the equipment is designed to give a simple grade: Pass or Fail. And anything failing this test goes straight back to the provider. Only if the sample passes the first 2 phases will it be eligible for the 3rd and final phase. 3rd Phase - THC/CBD testing: If the sample gets a passing grade on the first two phases, it’ll then move on to the 3rd and final phase. Our Lab technician will use our spectroscopy-based potency analyzers to check for THC-A, Delta-9 THC, Total THC, Total Potential THC, CBD-A, CBD, Total CBD and Total Potential CBD. This will give an indication of the potency of the product.
