Montana Biotech is a lab focusing on RE-discovering the science behind cannabis. Cannabinoids are the therapeutic compounds found in the cannabis genus. Both hemp and marijuana produce phyto-cannabinoids. The true difference between cannabis hemp and cannabis marijuana is the plants ability to produce, enzymaticaly, THCA. New discoveries have lead researchers to the hypothesis that it is the functionality of the enzyme, THCA synthase, not the absence of the gene coding for the enzyme that differentiates marijuana varieties from cannabis hemp varieties. Plant derived cannabinoids, phytocannabinoids, are created by the cannabis plant through a single enzyme catalyzed reaction. Each cannabinoid has a corresponding enzyme catalyzing their creation. CBN is the only known cannabinoid NOT derived from an enzymatic process; instead CBN is a degradation product, UV light exposure, heating, of THC.
Cannabis potency testing has come of age! Knowing the cannabinoid profile of a cannabis strain or variety will help providers of medical cannabis fit a patients’ condition to a medicine they will benefit from the best. Montana Biotech offers cannabinoid potency testing in Montana. There are two types of testing that can be employed by a laboratory or individual to analyze their cannabis, qualitative and quantitative.
We specialize in potency testing, genetic screening, and labeling for the medical marijuana industry.
Montana Biotech has been a potency analysis lab in Montana testing medical marijuana products for patients and caregivers for the past 2 years. We have built an expertise in customers service and technical excellence.
We hope to hear from you soon!!
Montana Biotech specializes in cannabis potency testing. Genetic profiling is now offered to help with the identifying and categorizing of new varieties/cultivars for the medical cannabis industry. Cannabis varieties/cultivars will be added to our data base and made public as soon as samples are scrutinized and released by the grower. Montana Biotech is willing to help patients and caregivers achieve the best results from their medicine.
Montana BioTech currently offers two types of testing.
This service is intended for both the caregiver and patient. Montana BioTech collects sample/s from the caregiver or patient of 500mg or ½ gram. We then isolate the resin and put it through a rigorous testing process. We then analyzes the data and return to the caregiver or patient a document outlining a percent per volume amount of the cannabinoids THC, CBD, CBN, as well as percent of assayable cannabinoids. This test is only representative of the sample volume and is not a certification. 50% deposit is due when the sample/s are submitted. Test results are confidential and are released at the caregivers or patients discretion.
Diagnostic Analysis can be used for:
-Perfecting the curing of flowers.
-Switching to a new technique of growing. Soil vs hydro etc.
-Helping to determine harvest times for different varieties/cultivars.
-Self analyzing varieties/cultivars for therapeutic effect.
–Analyzing varieties/cultivars for breeding or results from crosses.
This service is intended for the breeder. Any person developing a unique variety/cultivar and wanting to release it should get some kind of documentation certifying their cross. Caregivers can use this service to certify their medicine as quality. This is a methods based test, and is conducted by Montana BioTech technicians. We collect a representative sample of the volume to be certified (~ 1g/ .25 pound), isolate the resin and put the sample through a rigorous testing process. We analyze the data and prepare a results sheet. Montana BioTech will then issue a certificate to the caregiver or patient certifying the specified volume at the analyzed THC, CBD, CBN content. 20% is due when collection has take place. Test results are confidential and are released at the caregivers or patients discretion.
Certification is for:
-Assuring a caregivers’ patient/s that they are providing a quality product.
–Transfers to other caregivers. Assure them the medicine is of top quality.
-Releasing a new variety/cultivar to other caregivers.
–Patients to better determine the therapeutic effects of certified strains on THEIR condition.
-Helping to legitimize a controversial industry.
When thinking of the difference between qualitative vs quantitative testing methods think of quality verses quantity. Thin layer chromatography, T.L.C., is a qualitative method of testing cannabis that provides a “picture” or “finger print” of the quality of phytocannabinoids present in a medical marijuana sample. It is an absent or present testing method; is CBD in the sample or not? T.L.C. is not a method to determine the amount of CBD in a cannabis sample as accurately as a quantitative testing method like gas chromatography, GC.
When thinking of the difference between quantitative vs qualitative testing methods think of quantity verses quality. Quantitative methods determine how much THC, CBD, CBN or other novel cannabinoids are present in a medical cannabis sample or cannabis infused preparation. Some of the well known quantitative methods are gas chromatography (GC), and high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). Both methods are currently used by cannabis potency testing labs all over the U.S.
