Water Activity & Moisture Content

Using these tests, we will quantify the total moisture in addition to the amount of water available for microbial activity plant degradation. These tests play a very important role as excessive amounts of water in the plant can allow microorganisms to survive on it as a food source to support enzymatic & chemical reactions rendering the cannabis unsafe and spoiled. Maintaining proper moisture levels will drastically reduce any chance of microbial growth in the herbal product, making it safe for patient consumption and prolonging shelf-life. GCA Labs will conduct the following tests to ensure product safety:

  • Filth and Foreign Matter
  • Water Activity
  • Moisture Content
