Portland, Oregon, March 10, 2023 – Green Leaf Lab is excited to announce they are approved and accredited for Oregon’s New Testing Rules, which now include Metals and Microbial testing, along with Cannabinoids, Pesticides, Solvents, Terpenes, and Mycotoxins. After undergoing strict evaluation and performing meticulous testing, Green Leaf Lab has passed all accreditation requirements from the Oregon Environmental Laboratory Accreditation Program (ORELAP), being one of only four fully accredited cannabis and hemp analytical laboratories in Oregon.
As of March 1st, 2023, ORELAP introduced new regulatory requirements for cannabis products sold in the state of Oregon. This new regulation requires rigorous testing for contaminants in cannabis products. The new analytes are required to be tested to the highest standards of quality control and safety:
- Heavy metal contaminants include arsenic, cadmium, lead, and mercury
- Microbial contaminants include pathogenic Aspergillus flavus, A. fumigatus, A. niger and A. terreus, Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli, and Salmonella species.
CEO and founder, Rowshan Reordan said “I am so proud of the hard work and dedication of our team to receive this accreditation. This was a major undertaking, and I am excited to be able to offer compliant testing to our clients. Oregon’s testing standards are now in line with many other states in the nation. This will allow a competitive and flourishing industry when inter-state commerce is allowed.”
