Hemp Compliance Mode

LightLab’s Hemp Compliance Mode accurately analyzes THC content using a specialized analysis technique to ensure accuracy down to 0.03% THC, well below the typical THC limit of 0.3% in most jurisdictions.  Farmers and processors can use the LightLab to track individual plant THC production to ensure crop compliance or select strains for breeding or culling.  LightLab helps farmers manage the risk of regulatory action or crop/product destruction by providing real-time THC data.
