We compared the Purpl PRO against traditional laboratory testing for cannabis potency, and the results show that the Purpl PRO is just as accurate as traditional laboratory testing.
Oh, the Purpl PRO costs $1,495, is super easy to use, fits in your pocket, gives you immediate results, and you can use it over and over and over and over…you get the point.

The Purpl PRO by Purpl Scientific Inc. is a new generation marijuana test kit aimed at simplifying potency testing, and making accurate, consistent potency testing more accessible throughout the value-chain. The bottom-line is that cannabis testing equipment is evolving. THC Testing and CBD Testing can now be done outside the lab with confidence.
WHAT WE TESTED
Cured Flower THC and CBD Concentrations
WHAT WAS COMPARED
Purpl PRO against well established and respected traditional cannabis testing laboratories in two states (California and Oregon) that used laboratory analysis of representative samples of cannabis products via either gas chromatography (GC) or high-pressure liquid chromatography (HPLC).
In comparing the Purpl PRO vs Traditional Laboratory Testing for CANNABIS POTENCY (THC & CBD) the Purpl PRO proved to be just as accurate as traditional laboratory testing.
THE SCIENCE IN THE PURPL PRO
SCIENTIFIC APPROACH: Near-Infrared (NIR) Spectroscopy
Based on near-infrared spectroscopy (NIR), a technology originally developed for agricultural measurements 70 years ago, and currently used for instantaneous testing of multiple product attributes in nearly every industry, the Purpl PRO is aimed at bringing this well-proven approach to the cannabis industry. In addition to the key attributes of instantaneous, non-destructive testing, the Purpl PRO also aims to simplify cannabis testing by making it portable for use in and around any cultivation or retail environment, affordable for any size operation, and simple in operation to allow accurate testing by any user.
THE SCIENCE IN LABORATORY TESTING
SCIENTIFIC APPROACH: Gas Chromatography (GC) or High-Pressure Liquid Chromatography (HPLC)
The state-of-the-art in cannabis potency testing is laboratory analysis of representative samples of cannabis products via either gas chromatography (GC) or high-pressure liquid chromatography (HPLC). While both analytical techniques can be quite accurate and repeatable when used in a consistent fashion, these techniques require high cost instrumentation, trained technical operators, and frequent maintenance and calibration to produce a consistent result.
