SAN DIEGO – MAY 11, 2022 – CLIP Labs is now the second testing lab in California—the first in Southern California—to be licensed with Napro Research, LLC for their proprietary reporting tool, PhytoFacts®. These innovative chemometrics reports offer a more comprehensive, and visual, reporting of cannabis strains.
The ground-breaking PhytoFacts® cannabinoid and terpenoid reporting will benefit cultivators, manufacturers, retailers and consumers alike. Proponents of chemometrics also believe this reporting will help standardize the cannabis testing industry.
“Over the past several years it has become apparent that terpene content in cannabis flower and cannabis-based products play a significant role in both the physiological and the sensory impact to the cannabis end-user. Being able to visually display the terpene chemoprofile’s contribution using PhytoFacts® is powerful for both the cultivator/producer and the customer,” shared CLIP Labs CSO, Dr. Cindy Orser.
PhytoPrint®, which is Napro Research’s advanced terpenoid visualization tool, creates a complete chemical profile, including flavors and predicted effects based upon the terpenes found in the sample. This all-encompassing report empowers customers of all experience levels with an easily digestible guide that will lead them to their desired product based on the effect it supplies.
Added Dr. Orser, “PhytoFacts® is an important step forward in bringing transparency to the cannabis consumer to more fully appreciate the contribution that terpenes bring to the chemoprofile of cannabis flower and cannabis-based products.”
CLIP Labs is proud to partner with Napro Research as they move the cannabis industry forward. PhytoFacts chemometric reports will be immediately available to CLIP Lab customers as a part of the full-panel compliance testing.
