Oklahoma Compliance Packages
Oklahoma Compliance Packages, also known as OCP’s, are bundles of tests required by the Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority. Currently, regulations state that every 10lb batch of product, in its final, sellable form, must have a compliance panel run.
This can be pricey for processors making edibles. With that being said, we do offer an ‘Edibles Package’ at a lower rate to help you save money. This package can only be utilized if you have tested the distillate or other concentrate used to infuse your product first.
Growers also have an option to homogenize their harvest batches to reduce testing costs. Using this method, we would limit the homogenization to 5 strains. We would require 4g of each strain. Once your samples reach the lab, we will homogenize a sample for testing. The remaining samples will be used for separate potency and terpene tests on each strain. The compliance data will be used from the homogenized samples for each strain thereafter.
There is a downside to homogenization, however. If your homogenized sample fails a mandatory test, you will then have to run tests on each strain to narrow down which one was compromised. After you have, potentially, remedied your failure you would then have to run compliance testing again in order to sell your product.
Express Toxicology Services’ Lab performs two types of tests: Oklahoma Compliance Testing and quality assurance testing (also referred to as R&D testing). Each test is performed for different reasons. Let’s look into each type of test and why these two tests are performed. The Oklahoma compliance test is a test performed on cannabis and cannabis products to assess whether or not the sample meets the testing requirements set by the Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority (OMMA).
The Oklahoma compliance testing process starts with ensuring the proper documentation is presented to our cannabis testing lab prior to sending in your samples.
- Express Toxicology New Client and Intake Forms: We will need the Client Information Form and any relevant Intake Forms. (Flower, Concentrate or Ingestible).
- Licensing: OMMA Requires a Current OMMA, OBNDD and Transport License Numbers for any Transfers. of samples or products. These must be verified prior to transfer of samples.
- Manifest of Inventory to be Transferred: OMMA Requires that you have a Transport Manifest Listing all samples being transported and transferred. This will be from the origination location to the ending location and must include all Licensing Information and a detailed List of Inventory to be transferred.
- Chain of Custody Form: This will be filled out and signed by the transporter who is delivering the samples. This releases custody of the sample to an Express Toxicology Services Employee.
- Payment: All orders must be paid prior to the start of testing. We accept Cash, Check or Credit Card.
Once at the lab, the sample is tested for a number of required tests. The tests required are dependent upon sample type. Once the test is complete, ETS lab personnel will work with a laboratory director to prepare a Certificate of Analysis, which contains the results of the tests and information as to whether or not the sample passed or failed. This certificate is then sent to the client to inform them if they can legally sell their products or not. Simultaneously, If the samples fails it is required by OMMA to be sent in within 48 hours.
On the other hand, the Research and Development (R&D) gives you the options to ensure your product is safe before publishing an OMMA COA. With passing reports from R&D, an OMMA Report will be generated. It’s similar to the Oklahoma compliance test, but instead of being required to send the COA to the OMMA if the sample fails, the samples will be submitted to the clients directly. This test is intended for use by manufacturers and cultivators to know and improve upon the quality of their products. Should the sample fail, the client is provided with a similar COA but a COA for R&D testing. This test is useful to determine whether or not a new batch of samples is of a high enough quality to sell to customers, but it does not carry the weight that the compliance test does.
