Best Lab, Steep HillBerkeley, steephill.com
Cannabis testing labs aren’t focused simply on how strong your pot is these days. Now, analyzing how safe products are for consumers is key. No cannabis laboratory has put more years into the cause — or risked more — than Steep Hill. Since its founding in an Emeryville apartment in 2008, Steep set the pace for cannabis analysis by using near-infrared light sensors to quickly assay potency and launching consumer plant sex testing kits. In 2017, Steep Hill traced California’s pesticide problems to their source: starter plants that once sprayed, test dirty for generations. Game-changing.
