    Hi Big J.

    Our gas chromatography machine is definitely the real deal. We don't have a mass spec, nor do our friends at A360. But a mass spec is completely unnecessary for the analyses that we're performing. In fact, gas and liquid (which A360 uses), are the two methodologies that the UN recommends for cannabis testing.

    As for the rumor that you heard, there is no truth to it. HT solicited us. We tested all flower and concentrate entries for potency. We even tested some of the concentrates for butane residue to help them determine if certain entries were really solvent-less.

    JustOne, thank you for the recommendation.

    Soup, you are exactly correct.

    Hi Greenspoon,

    Our equipment is suitable for testing most cannabis products. The only thing we avoid are edibles. There are often too many additional fats and sugars that can have a detrimental effect on our machinery so we ask our clients to instead bring in the starting material (i.e. butter, oil, etc.).

    You sure its the real deal and not a smaller kit setup? A mass spectrometer isnt necessary? Wha?

    Yup, heard yall paid 8K to have your name all over the HT cup. Any yea, all the edibles and concentrates were tested at A360. You tested for solvents cause thats all your setup was capable of doing.

    Huh? You realize that makes zero sense, right?

    NWBA, did you guys even release the results to the HT cup? Can't find it anywhere online. A360 used to have the edibles and concentrates posted until HT told em to take it down cause that wouldve been a conflict of interest since yall paid HT 8K to be their testers in return for some publicity. Am I right?

    We didn't release the results publicly because our agreement with HT prohibited us from doing so. The samples all came randomly numbered from HT so it was impossible to match up results with specific entries.

    In exchange for testing all flowers and concentrates, HT gave us a booth and adspace in the guide book they printed for the event.

    No way we would have paid 8 grand for our involvement. Come on Big J. Booths were $2500 (I believe). And we had to put in a lot of labor to do all the testing.

    I gotta say, from my experience with them, NWBA is one of the most respectable businesses in the industry. They're always coming through with the latest tech. Super easy to work with

    I guess I can see a place for early testing on CBD's? But I prefer a 1-1 ratio CBD strain, and I've seen many VERY high (13%) strains that only had 1 or 2% THC though. Not sure you can really figure out the RATIO? Without later testing?
    Personnally I've had better luck with the balanced ratio strains, and would rather have a 8% CBD with 8% thc, than 12% CBD and only 1% thc. We're using these meds to bring BALANCE back to a regulatory system that is unbalanced.

    I totally agree borran a 50/50 ratio either through one plant or by using a blend of plant. I find it very easy to add thc content when breeding but cbd and cbn are much harder to estimate . Using a leafe test i can get an better approximate of the ration the male may be able to pass on. As with any seed it will alway be unknown until you run them. Our harlequin and canbatonic came from harbourside and we were told tested at 10 and 10. Have them flowering to varify now. If so then a great plant but can it be better or not we will see. No matter i guess because i am more than willng to look through lots of seeds to possibly find something and i figured tbis cross would have the potential and in seed form.

    Hey thanks for the work FAB, most folks (even serious growers) just don't get the importance of CBD's in our meds, I love it when folks jump in with both feet bro!. Are your H Jo's from NHSC? Northern hum bolt seed co? Ringos gear? I'm supposed to be getting a bunch of seed stock from him soon!
