The term ‘Halent Tested’ is fast becoming the mark of quality in the medical marijuana industry—like the Underwriters Laboratories logo is to electronic device safety. We’re helping patients find Halent-tested medication.

Doobons.com began a revolution in the way patients find local medical marijuana dispensaries, doctors and clinics, and other resources last year by combining state-of-the-art geotargeting technology with an approachable, user-friendly web design. Now Doobons helps visitors even more by identifying dispensaries that use Halent Laboratories’ medical marijuana testing and reporting, which enable wellness center / medical marijuana dispensary employees to recommend the appropriate cannabis strains for patient’s specific medical requirements.
“Cannabinoids are a class of diverse chemical compounds that activate cannabinoid receptors, which affect different parts of the human anatomy—like the brain and immune system,” said Dr. Donald Land, co-founder of Halent Laboratories. "A lot of terpenes also have positive health effects."
According to Rev. Dr. Kymron deCesare, an herbalist and the Laboratory Manager at Halent, terpenes are a related class of compounds found in virtually all plants and animals that often possess strong aromas and impart flavors to many plants, including cannabis. Many also have well documented beneficial medicinal effects.
DeCesare points out that limonene, a terpene that gives citrus and some cannabis a lemony aroma, also works as an antidepressant and is used as such in herbal remedies and aromatherapies.
“Most dispensaries use labs that just test for THC levels—the cannabinoid that gives people a euphoric feeling,” said Craig Caudill, also a co-founder. “But much of the medicinal value is in many of the other cannabinoids and terpenes.”
Halent Laboratories not only screens for over 30 pesticides, molds, fungi and mycotoxins, they also test for and provide reports that show the potency of 15 cannabinoids and 8 terpenes. These profiles allow dispensary staff to scientifically match patients’ medical conditions to the right strain.
“The term ‘Halent Tested’ is fast becoming the mark of quality in the medical marijuana industry—like the Underwriters Laboratories logo is to electronic device safety,” said John, founder of Doobons.com. “We’re helping patients find Halent-tested medications.”
State-of-the-art testing equipment and procedures developed and administered by University of California, Davis professors Donald P. Land and Rev. Dr. Kymron deCesare ensure testing accuracy at Halent. Easy-to-understand reports accurately detail the components of each medical cannabis sample, which the specially trained wellness center staff can interpret and map to each patient’s specific medical conditions.
“Doobons is showcasing best-in-class resources like Halent, a company that is moving the industry in the right direction,” said John. “The industry is maturing beyond the old medical marijuana dispensary model. Those who are embracing medical advancements, focusing on treating patient’s specific health needs and transforming into holistic, integrative health care centers are blazing a trail to the future of medical marijuana.”
