Quality and safety is paramount for us here at Kiva Confections. We chose Anresco out of dozens of laboratories because of the reliability of their results, the professionalism of their analysts, and their flexibility with meeting our shifting deadlines. We elect for Anresco’s Pesticide Plus package, which includes more pesticides at lower limits of detection than any other cannabis testing lab in California. Anresco is a true partner to Kiva, and with their help we are able to produce the safest, most consistent and delicious cannabis infused products on the market.

I greatly appreciate working with Anresco Laboratories. They are defining the bar by which other analytical companies in the cannabis industry will be compared, due to their highly skilled scientific leadership, decades of experience in analytical testing, and willingness to go the extra mile for their customers. I very much look forward to continuing our relationship with Anresco.
Chris Emerson, Co-Founder of Level Blends
Our Group has been using Anresco Laboratories for the past two years and have always been completely satisfied with their performance. They do an excellent job, are always punctual, and offer the most reliable results of any California cannabis testing laboratory. We have on occasion requested special parameters for testing, short cycle turn around, result verification amongst other non-schedule support needs and Anresco Laboratories staff has always jumped through hoops to accommodate and find solutions to our business needs. I could not be happier or more confident in a group, than what I am with Anresco Laboratories.

Safe, accurate and reliable testing is a must for all patients. Because of this we have awarded Anresco the United Patients Group coveted Seal of Approval as well as noted them as one of our Preferred Testing Labs.
John Malanca, CEO of United Patients Group

Anresco analyzed a series of illicit market samples and found most were adulterated with high levels of vitamin e acetate — a compound frequently linked to the recent vaping crisis. Additionally, all samples failed the California BCC’s limits for pesticides, in some cases at hundreds of times the permitted level.
As the number of cannabis products proliferate and their total consumption increases, food safety has become a significant concern of both regulators and the industry in general. The cannabis industry will benefit immensely by adopting the Good Manufacturing Practice (GMPs) and Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points (HACCP) that the food industry has successfully implemented to control food safety.
