Test for THC Profiles

Test for CBD Profiles

Test for 20 TErpenes

Test for 10 Cannabiniods


Cannabinoid Profile and Potency Testing

Key Box Labs tests each box for potency, including the total Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and Cannabidiol (CBD).  Key Box Labs offers accurate quantification of 10 cannabinoids using High Pressure Liquid Chromatography (HPLC).  THE HPLC does not heat up the sample, therefore, any acid cannabinoid compounds, such as THC-A will remain in their natural form.  This allows accurate quantification of all the acid (THC-A) and neutral (THC) forms of the client’s cannabinoid profile and potency.  This is an in-house developed and validated method.



Agilent HPLC with Ultraviolet Detection (UVD)

Model: 1100 Series

  • Δ9 – Tetrahydrocannabinol (Δ9-THC)

  • Tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA)

  • Cannabidiol (CBD)

  • Cannabidiolic acid (CBDA)

  • Cannabigerol (CBG)

  • Cannabigerolic acid (CBGA)

  • Cannabinol (CBN)


Terpenes are fragrant oils that give cannabis its aromatic and flavour characteristics. Trichomes secrete these compounds and like cannabinoids, they bind to receptors in the brain that create numerous effects. Science and technology give us a better understanding of the beneficial interactions between terpenes and cannabinoids.
