Currently there is no universal method for testing cannabis products. But as regulated cannabis markets continue to emerge in North America (Canada and 11 US states now have legal marijuana, sold for medicinal and recreational purposes), there is a growing need for a system of rapid and effective cannabis and hemp testing.

Indeed the “cross-variability” of a particular strain, or batch, is an issue that affects everyone from the grower to the consumer.

Canadian start-up FluroTech (TSX-V:TEST, OTCQB:FLURF) is offering a solution to the problem. The Calgary-based Company has an extremely accurate means of measuring both the strength of cannabis and its purity – the latter referring to a product’s low or non-existent levels of impurities like mold, pesticides and heavy metals.
