Nevada Testing Lab Regulations - Terpenes and Testing Magazine

All harvested cannabis must be organized into homogenous batches. A random sample is then collected from each homogenized batch to be tested by an independent laboratory. The cultivation center may designate a person to select samples. Otherwise a testing lab professional must be the one to choose. If the cultivation does specify somebody to choose the sample they must notify the Division. Random samples are also chosen from homogenized batches of edibles and samples are harvested in the same fashion.

Until a sample has been tested according to Division procedures the homogenous batch must remain untouched by the cultivation. During this waiting period the batch should be kept in a cool, dry place. This will prevent contamination and protect the efficacy. Any sample must be destroyed by the independent testing laboratory or returned to the cultivation. The Division has set forth disposal protocol, this should be followed. Testing labs must also be sure to document the disposal of the sample.
