Test Benefits

Terpenes are naturally produced compounds that influence the aromas, flavors, and effects felt from using the cannabis product. Their differences can be subtle, but terpenes can add great depth to the horticultural art and connoisseurship of cannabis.

Many terpenes have very similar structures, so Encore Labs utilizes a powerful mass spectrometer to differentiate each one.

What We Test For


Terpenoid Testing

  1. The laboratory analyzes a sample of cannabis or cannabis product to determine the terpenoid profile of the sample.

  2. The laboratory reports the result of the terpenoid testing on the COA both as a percentage and in either milligrams per gram (mg/g) if by weight or milligrams per milliliter(mg/mL) if by volume.


GC/MS (Gas Chromatography Mass Spectrometry)
