What is Cannabis Reagent test for ?
Cannabis Reagent Test includes Cannabis (4-AP) reagent best for marijuana (dry herbs), hashish or other cannabis extracts but also suitable for fresh flowers, cakes and more. It is used to positively identify CBD or THC and to rule out synthetic cannabinoids or different, less predictable, less desirable, highly toxic dangerous drugs. Multiple reagents are required to detect adulterants and increase analysis precision.
Reagent tests can indicate PRESENCE, but not PURITY or QUANTITY. Mixtures can be detected with reagents only if adulterant causes a darker color change than the expected substance. To detect all ingredients and estimate their amount pair reagents with a TLC purity test kit.
What is included in Cannabis Reagent Test?
The Cannabis Reagent Test includes Cannabis reagent, micro spatula, instructions and app for all test kits and over 700 substances. Each 2 ampoules contains enough reagent for at least 1 test. Oxygen-free hermetically sealed glass ampoule protects reagent from light, plastic and moisture to ensure prolonged shelf life.
What is each reagent test for?
PRO Cannabis Reagent Test is best for marijuana (dry herbs), hashish or other cannabis extracts but it’s also suitable for fresh flowers, cakes and more.
Cannabis (4-AP) – main test for THC / CBD, helps rule out synthetic cannabinoids
How to use Cannabis Reagent Test?
GET ALL TOOLS
Get your sample, reagent ampoule, a sharp tool / scoop and paper towels.
PREPARE SAMPLE, ABOUT THIS BIG -> ●
A bigger sample can cause a stronger reaction. You need a new sample for each test.
ADD PREPARED SAMPLE TO REAGENT
Break open glass ampoule by gently pushing bottom of plastic cap outwards with your thumb pointing down. Do not crush the glass ampoule, after a few soft pushes and 10-20 seconds of trying the ampoule head will snap off without any effort. Using included plastic spatula add prepared small (●) sample inside opened plastic tube. Add liquids from both glass ampoules to the plastic tube, mix for at least 30 seconds.
OBSERVE AFTER 3 MINUTES
Disregard any color change after 5 minutes. Do not overinterpret your results, consider that color change reaction is always fastest and most vivid in the part where biggest surface of reagent touches sample, compared to its edges. Over time reaction will degrade due to air contact. Take photos.
Compare color change with instructions. Reagents can indicate PRESENCE, but not PURITY or QUANTITY. Adulterants can be detected with reagents only if they cause a darker color change than the expected substance. To detect all ingredients and estimate their amount pair reagents with a TLC purity test kit.
Close used items inside plastic tube and dispose safely.

How to handle Cannabis Reagent Test?
Drug testing kits contain toxic and/or corrosive chemicals, strong enough to burn skin and clothing. Keep out of eyes and mouth. Keep away from children and animals. Always use in a well-ventilated area. Wear gloves and protective eyewear. Never point towards face etc. If you get some on you/clothing, then immediately wash with lots of soap and water. Dispose of any unwanted reagent with running water, ventilate. Store reagents standing up and away from heat in a cool, dark place.
Reagents deteriorate with time or due to contact with air, especially if exposed to sunlight or not refrigerated. If you are uncertain whether the reagent will work, test it with an already confirmed sample.
How to test cannabis purity, not just presence?
Pair cannabis test with a TLC purity test kit. TLC allows you to discover full number of ingredients and estimate their amount, however still requires reagent tests to identify detected compounds.
A positive or negative Cannabis Test result does not indicate if a substance is safe. No substance is 100% safe.
