Cannabis Smoke & Vapour Testing

Setting the standard in cannabis smoke and vapour testing.

As the focus on consumer safety continues to sharpen, there is a growing concern about potentially harmful compounds, degradation by-products, and adulterants found in cannabis vaping products.

Your ability to obtain reliable, defensible product data, has never been more critical. Rest assured, we’re here to help. As a world leader in smoke and vapour analysis we’re experts at obtaining consistent and meaningful data to support your business.

Protect your customers and your brand with standardized vape testing protocols.

Health Canada has yet to establish aerosol testing standards for cannabis vaping devices. There also aren’t any regulatory requirements for the analysis of aerosols emitted from cannabis vaping devices – anywhere in the world.

How do forward-thinking product makers demonstrate to customers that their vape products meet the highest quality and safety standards, while delivering a consistent experience? By implementing standardized testing protocols.

Our experts have developed a comprehensive testing protocol specifically for cannabis vape devices, to help you mitigate risk and protect your customers. Whether you’re just beginning the product development phase, or your products are already on the market, we partner with your internal teams to meet your unique needs.

Quality Always Wins

Go beyond the required Health Canada testing standards to win the attention and loyalty of today’s demanding consumers.

The Labstat Vape Testing Protocol

Are you confident your vape products meet the highest standards?

Protect your customers and your brand with comprehensive standardized testing from the experts.

Standardized vape testing protocols, designed by the experts at Labstat

Our experts have developed a comprehensive testing protocol specifically for cannabis vape devices, to help you mitigate risk and protect your customers.

We understand there is an array of devices that differ in their design and delivery methods, and often require a unique approach to testing. The Labstat Vape Testing Protocol™ is designed to work with any vape device to identify chemical risks associated with both the cannabis extract formulation, and the resulting vapour emissions.

The Labstat Vape Testing Protocol™ is a phased testing approach designed to answer these key questions:

  1. Is the product performing as designed (i.e. delivering compounds of interest as intended); and
  2. Is the product performing as expected, or is it generating unintended compounds or degradation by-products?

Each phase builds on the previous, to develop a technical understanding of the harmonization between the device, the formulation, and the resulting vapour.

PHASE I:
Device Performance

Measuring the performance of the device under different puffing parameters, to ensure consistent delivery of the intended volume of aerosol throughout the lifecycle of the device.

PHASE II:
Dose Delivery

Measuring the dose delivery of the cannabinoids and terpenes present in the vapour, and consistency of deliveries amongst devices throughout their lifecycle.

PHASE III:
Compounds of Interest

Testing extracts and vapour for high-priority toxicants, of known interest to cannabis regulators and consumers, including potentially harmful compounds formed in the vaping process.

Cannabis Vaping Liquid and Aerosol/Vapour Testing Services

The analytical methods Labstat uses have been validated and verified for a range of matrices such as; cannabis extracts, concentrates and e-liquids. We have the most comprehensive analytical chemistry and in-vitro toxicology testing capabilities for cannabis smoke, e-vapor and heat-not-burn, oil and extract products.

In-vitro Toxicology

We have extensive experience in toxicology assays on extracts, smoke, and aerosols including

  • Ames (Mutagenicity)
  • Neutral Red Uptake (Cytotoxicity)
  • Micronucleus (Genotoxicity)
