Cannabinoids are chemical compounds found in cannabis which have purported health benefits such as pain relief, stress reduction, and anti-inflammatory properties.
Terpenes are aromatic compounds produced by many plants including cannabis. They can also be found in food, drugs, and alcohol.
Solvents are used in the production of concentrated cannabis products. Trace amounts of these solvents can have adverse health effects and must be removed at the end of the extraction process.
There are many different pesticides and growth regulators used in agricultural processes including the cultivation of cannabis plants. These substances can be harmful above certain thresholds.
Mycotoxins are toxic compounds that are naturally produced by certain types of molds. These molds are commonly found in soil, decaying vegetation, and grains. These substances can be harmful above certain thresholds.
Cannabis plants can readily absorb heavy metals from soil and growth media. These elements have well-documented negative effects on human health and thus screening for heavy metals is important to ensure the safety of cannabis products.
