Green Scientific Labs Announces New Method Development Paving the Way for More Eco-Friendly Cannabis Testing Capabilities

Derek J. Averill Ph.D., Chief Technology Officer, stated, “We are elated to implement these more environmentally friendly testing methods."

Green Scientific Labs, a leading cannabis and hemp testing laboratory, announced today the implementation of new testing methods as part of its ongoing commitment to continue to lead the industry in scientific accuracy while sticking true to its namesake “Green.”

Derek J. Averill Ph.D., Chief Technology Officer, stated, “We are elated to implement these more environmentally friendly testing methods. These proprietary processes have proven to reduce plastic waste, helium usage, HVAC demand, and drastically reduce solvent waste. I am proud that we were able to reduce solvent use by about 90% for one of our routine analytical methods. These measures have helped our lab improve our testing efficiencies and minimize wasted energy and materials while upholding quality science. These updates will help in our continuous efforts to position Green Scientific Labs at the forefront of cannabis testing research and development.”

Green Scientific Labs continues its nationwide rollout with the opening of a full service laboratory in Phoenix Arizona with future locations soon to follow throughout 2021.

“We have continued to expand our nationwide hemp and Florida marijuana client base and with the planned opening of multiple labs within the next six to nine months, it was imperative to prevent any bottlenecks when it comes to turnaround times. With the expected increase in testing volume from the additional locations, we are very cognizant of our responsibility to the environment. I am extremely proud of our ability to maintain industry leading science and service while simultaneously being able to minimize our potential environmental impact. The two are often at odds with one another” said Andrew Hall, Ph.D., Chief Scientific Officer.
