When it comes to cannabis infused products, consistency is vital. Homogeneity testing determines if the cannabinoid potency of the infused edible products is evenly distributed throughout the product. This is paramount to ensuring that the cannabinoids are not too highly concentrated in one area of the product. In order to ensure every serving is accurate, homogeneity tests must be performed on random samples.
Homogeneity testing is conducted by dividing a given edible product, e.g. a brownie, into numerous pieces. Each piece is then extracted individually and analyzed independently for the cannabinoid profile and content. Comparing the cannabinoid results across the smaller pieces that make up the edible is vital to determining uniformity of the cannabinoids throughout the product.
