McCoy & McCoy Laboratories is now a Licensed Hemp Testing Laboratory
In June 2018, McCoy & McCoy Laboratories, Inc. (MMLI) became Kentucky’s largest private hemp testing laboratory as part of the Kentucky Department of Agriculture (KDA) Industrial Hemp Research Pilot Program. This exciting new industry is bringing new jobs and opportunities to the Commonwealth.
THC Testing For Hemp GrowersMMLI supports Kentucky Hemp Growers by providing delta-9-THC potency testing for either pre-harvest or post-harvest floral samples. While KDA compliance delta-9-THC testing must be performed by UK, process control testing can help monitor a crop for the 0.3% delta-9-THC requirement prior to KDA compliance testing. This ensures your crop meets Industrial Hemp specifications before inspection.
CBD & Terpenoid Profiling for Hemp Oil Producers/ProcessorsWhen producing CBD oil for the nutraceutical industry, it’s important to know the potency levels for all cannabinoids of interest. Most importantly, we test delta-9-THC to ensure potency compliance for processors (KDA regulations allow any laboratory to perform compliance testing). Additionally, some processors are interested in the Terpenoid profile. MMLI can test for most cannabinoids and terpenes that are of interest to the CBD industry. We can work with you on your specific requirements and develop a testing regimen to best suit your needs.
Residual Solvent/Pesticide Residue/Heavy Metal/ Microbiological AnalysisHemp processing and production, like any agricultural industry, requires many sophisticated steps to bring the product from the field to the consumer. Unfortunately, these processes can potentially introduce contaminants that can affect the end product and cause issues with consumer confidence. MMLI has the technology and the capability to test for many of these contaminants, including residual solvents, pesticide residues, heavy metals, and microbiological contamination. Each process is different, so we will work with you to determine the best scope of analytical testing for your hemp production methods
