Uncle Ike’s has partnered with Medicine Creek Analytics to add another level of scrutiny to the cannabis on their shelves. Already one of the largest cannabis retail chains in the state, they’ll be the first to self-fund random monthly product testing.
Medical Creek Analytics is a fully certified I-502 testing laboratory. They provide extended analyte panels for cannabinoids, terpenes, microbial, and residual solvents, pesticides, mycotoxins, and water activity; with heavy metal testing coming soon, according to medicalcreekanalytics.com
Before they’re put in packages and sent to retailers, cannabis products already undergo several tests. The producers and processors handle testing by sending batches of product out to analytical laboratories of their choice. As a result retailers typically don’t test products on their shelves because they assume it’s fine. Uncle Ike’s believes the WSLCB is failing to set proper testing standards and is acting on their own accord to combat the issue.
“Your pot isn’t safe. You have been relying upon the state to ensure safe products, but it just isn’t happening. That is why Ike’s is taking it into our own hands. At Ike’s, your products will be tested,” Uncle Ike’s Instagram.
Uncle Ike’s got Medical Creek Analytics to test the cannabinoids, moisture content, microbes, mycotoxins, and pesticides. Artizen’s Grape Ape, Royal Tree Gardens’ Do-Si-Dos, Boggy Boon’s Death Star, Tikun Olam’s Midnight, and Oil Tycoon’s Sour Tsunami oil tanker have all undergone Medical Creek Analytics’ tests so far.
