Cannabinoid Testing In Europe and a List of Laboratories

If you are looking to get a certificate of analysis (COA) for your cannabis or hemp product we have compiled a list of the top cannabinoid testing laboratories in Europe. Whether you are a grower, producer, manufacturer, wholesaler or retailer getting an accurate COA is important for you own legal peace of mind and for your customers to know exactly what they are buying.

3rd party lab testing

We are currently using Eurofins as certified, true 3rd part testing for our CBD oil products. You can read more about their accreditation schedule here.

We have another 3rd part testing institute before, Croatia Control which remains our back-up. Their accreditation can be found here.

A comprehensive list of cannabinoid testing laboratories in Europe

Our list of cannabinoid testing laboratories is designed to help you find a reliable partner who can test your products and samples to check for potency and safety. Even if you have your own in house lab or HPLC machine getting a third party to confirm your results is common sense and good practice

Is your laboratory competent?

Make sure the laboratory you choose is EN ISO/IEC 17025 compliant. This is the main ISO standard used by testing and calibration laboratories. In most major countries, ISO/IEC 17025 is the standard for which most labs must hold accreditation in order to be deemed technically competent.
