Terpene Profiling

Although terpene profiling is not required by Health Canada, we know the terpene profile of a particular cannabis cultivar is a unique fingerprint and thus critical to your finished product’s performance and quality. Our labs utilize comprehensive gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) analytical methods capable of profiling arrays of both mono- and sesquiterpenes.

We’re currently testing for the following 59 terpenes:

  • α-pinene 
  • camphene 
  • β-pinene 
  • Δ-valerolactam
  • Δ3-carene 
  • α-terpinene 
  • α-terpineol
