Meet Our Leadership Team
About Indo Laboratories
Indo Labs was conceived in 2016, as we identified a major bottleneck in meeting the regulatory requirements for cannabis product manufacturing and distribution. Our team is comprised of highly experienced professionals from the environmental sciences, biotechnology, and cannabis spaces. We pride ourselves on the rigorous attention to detail within the thoughtfully developed testing platform that will continue to embrace the most advanced technologies to provide you with results that you can trust.
Cannabis analytical testing is an essential part of the legal marijuana industry and now government mandated. Both grow facilities and dispensaries are required to test their products by an independent third-party laboratory for potency and purity. As the cannabis industry continues to grow, the lab testing sector is not evolving quickly enough to keep up with the rapid influx of products that need to be tested. This bottleneck in the industry has created a significant challenge not only for the producers and distributors (by delaying production and sales), but also the ability of the state government to truly regulate the process and ensure that communities are receiving products that are accurately tested and safe to consume. Even in the early stages of the legitimate market, there is already a significant gap in the analytics industry that is not being met, leading to exceptionally long lead times for results and testing variability.
In addition to medicinal and recreational cannabis, Indo Labs offers testing services for companies that exclusively produce CBD products. In 2018, federal lawmakers passed the Farm Bill, which separated hemp from the legal definition of marijuana, making it legal to manufacture and buy anywhere in the United States. A major concern of this growing industry is that there is little to no regulation and no one is overseeing what is truly going into these products. CBD is not considered a food or dietary supplement, so there are not strict regulations or testing requirements for the products. The FDA can only go so far as warning companies against making any type of marketing claims regarding what the product can do for a person’s health. The fact that CBD product potency, efficacy and safety are already being acknowledged as an issue means that laboratory testing is not only becoming a benefit to refining product validation, but it will soon become a requirement of state governments.
The mission of Indo Labs is to elevate and standardize the science of cannabis testing to advance the legitimacy of the industry and enable the proliferation of safe consumer access. We plan to achieve these results by utilizing the most advanced and reliable analytical equipment combining automation and scientific rigor to develop a robust process platform. We have established a testing regime that maximizes both throughput and consistency to deliver results that you can count on for their precision and accuracy.
