Medical Marijuana Testing
The following will be required for a sampling representative to service you:
- Have all product pre-packaged in units and proper containers to be batch bagged.
- Weigh out each unit or container and write the net weight and tare weight on each unit or container to be batch bagged.
A Green Leaf Lab representative will not weigh out or confirm weights. They will write on the batch bags approximate weights.
A Green Leaf Lab representative will come to your facility to perform testing. You must have all your batch/process lots separated and ready for sampling.
Under the new OHA/OLCC October 1 rules, pesticide testing for large batches has changed. October 1 sampling protocols are the same. They are still based on ten pound batches. The laboratory will randomly select the sample package from a batch to be tested for pesticides.
|Recreational flower: Harvest lot size in pounds||Number of 10lb batches required for pesticide testing||Number of 10lb batches required for all other testing|
Flower, extracts/concentrates, and topical testing require a minimum of four grams of product sample per analysis to be performed, which may include pesticide, potency, solvent, or a combination thereof. However, a larger total sample may be required, based on ORELAP SOP sampling guidelines below.

What If My Sample Fails Testing?
Under Oregon rules, failed test results must be reported to the overseeing state agency (OLCC or OHA) by the testing laboratory, within 24 hours, for either medical or recreational clients, at the same time as or before reporting results to the grower or processor.
Please see the guidance on http://public.health.oregon.gov for further information.
