DigiPath Labs can also test for homogeneous distribution of cannabinoids in infused edible products. Homogeneity testing determines if the cannabinoid potency of infused edible products is evenly distributed throughout the product to ensure that cannabinoids are not too highly concentrated in one area of the product.
Homogeneity testing is conducted by dividing a given edible product, e.g. a cookie, into 5 or 6 pieces. Each piece is then extracted individually and analyzed independently for the cannabinoid profile and content. Comparing the cannabinoid results across the smaller pieces that make up the edible is of great interest to the producer to either confirm that their blending protocol is adequate or to alert them that further attention is needed to uniformly incorporate cannabis extract into the final product.
