One of the main benefits of the legal cannabis market in California is the transparency into product testing. Each product that is sold in the legal market has been thoroughly tested by an approved 3rd party laboratory. This ensures that each products you buy from SPARC is safe and fully compliant, and you know exactly what you’re getting.
SPARC has always believed in transparency and has a long history with product testing. Since opening our doors in San Francisco in 2010, we’ve been considered an innovator in the space: we tested all of our products even though there was no requirement to do so. To this day, we continue our commitment to transparency, access to safe cannabis, and an assortment of only the highest quality cannabis.
We don’t accept products that don’t have a certificate of analysis (COA) that passes the strict State cannabis testing requirements. All of our products are tested for cannabinoids, terpenoids, residual pesticides, heavy metals, mycotoxins, microbial impurities, and foreign materials. For certain product categories, there is additional testing required, including moisture content (flower), residual solvents & processing chemicals (cartridges & extracts), and homogeneity & water activity (edibles).
