Written by Cara Wietstock

ChemHistory is a cannabis testing lab based out of Milwaukie, Oregon. The reliable testing lab offers Potency Testing, Residual Solvent Testing, Microbial Testing, Pesticide Testing, and Homogeneity Testing. They are also registered with Confident Cannabis which means that Oregon growers, dispensaries, and manufacturers can order their test and view results online. Test results will also come with a QR code so that patients have an exact understanding of their products.

cannabis testing labsThis is all well and good, but it is also important to know what types of standards, accreditations, and methods are used in our cannabis testing lab. ChemHistory goes by the Nelac Institute TNI Standards for Environmental Laboratories (EL-V1-2009-ISO). They are currently awaiting accreditation for Oregon Environmental Laboratory Accreditation Program (ORELAP). ChemHistory is also CannaCheck approved. CannaCheck is one of the most comprehensive tests for Cannabis Product Quality Control in the United States.

Under the CannaCheck guidelines, ChemHistory tests for 59 pesticides as opposed to the 20 pesticides listed in the American Herbal Pharmacopoeia Cannabis Inflorescence (Cannabis Standards for Quality control). While their practices seem to be completely managed, it seems that they are conscious of their methods as well over at ChemHistory. All of the ChemHistory lab testing methodologies are compliant with the American Herbal Pharmacopoeia and HB3460 & OAR 333-007-0300.

ChemHistory doesn’t only use approved methods, they’re also a lab with integrity. With absolutely no bias, ChemHistory develops and delivers lab results within 24 to 72 hours. They also provide a thorough breakdown of each result that is easy to read for the chemist and non-chemist alike.
