Here at 10DC we know how important testing is. Your health is directly reliant on only inhaling or ingesting products that have a clear chain of custody with full panel test results. Not just meeting ODA minimums, not just meeting state minimums, but meeting the ethical requirement to adequately test for anything that could be harmful to our customers. That is why we make it our own mission to enforce strict full panel testing:
In early days of extraction technology, it was made apparent to the consumer that dangerous solvents were being used to extract THC from plant matter. In these early days strict requirements were quickly rolled out by state and federal authorities to protect the public. Back then butane and propane were the only culprits to “dirty” extracts. Fast forward to today’s market with hundreds of cannabinoids and products available to the consumer there is a whole new beast to tackle; Many of the alternative cannabinoids we sell are made by catalyst conversion from hemp derived CBD. These catalysts are for the most part unheard of by the consumer, until recently. We make sure to test for residual catalyst components such as residual Acetic Anhydride in THC-O and various other harmful compounds that could be found in today’s common hemp products. Very few brands apply this level of severity to testing, leaving behind unknowns for the consumer’s health and safety when purchasing their products.
We are able to offer this security to you, the consumer, by staying up to date on PEL(Permissible Exposure Limits) of these harmful compounds by recommendation from the CDC and other government agencies. Full panel testing is carried out by ISO-17025 accredited labs with Ultra High-Performance Liquid Chromatography-Tandem Mass Spectrometry. The labs we use are also registered with the DEA. More recently many of our customers were concerned about the “Vape Crisis” that swept across America, hospitalizing thousands of people in 2019-2020. We make sure to include Vitamin E Acetate in applicable panels to ensure our products and our customers are “VAPE SAFE”.
