Like many elements of hemp growing, understanding and trusting your test results is both confusing, and fluid, as this industry matures.
What is tested for and how the lab conducts its tests can make a significant difference in your test results.
In addition, while state regulatory hemp rules are still in the creation process and the USDA is continuing to define the federal regulatory rules on hemp (expected to be published this November), many states have not yet finalized their rules, nor do they currently have rules mandating CBD testing nor have they set up guidelines for monitoring the labs that DO the testing.
This means working with a trusted hemp consultant to vet reliable labs is a key component in your testing. As is understanding the confusing tests themselves!
“There is a lot of information in those tests for farmers to read and understand,” Tucci says.
Which is why much of Tucci’s time is spent helping HempLogic farmers understand, analyze and use their tests.
Just like a good agronomist does when it comes to evaluating soil, input and growing challenges with their farming partners, Tucci is bringing his knowledge on testing for THC and CBD to maximize the HempLogic farmer returns.
By using those tests, Tucci can recommend changes in everything from growing practices to harvest and biomass drying procedures.
