High Resolution Cannabis Photography

Testing Cannabis using High Resolution Imagery


Higher Standards

We seek to educate and encourage the cannabis industry toward a higher standard of service, where potency testing, standardized dosage, and quality assurance testing (pesticides/fungicides and microbiological contamination) become the accepted and acknowledged industry standard.
High resolution imagery allows dispensaries to identify known human pathogens, determine potential shelf life of medicine, and actively seek to provide patients with the highest quality medicinal cannabis available.

Many dangerous Pesticides, Fungicides, and Plant Growth Regulators (PGR’s) are used on Cannabis, often indiscriminately throughout the flowering stages of growth. These residual toxins create potentially dangerous safety issues to patients when consumed.

Mold and fungal contaminants should be of concern to anyone who consumes medical Cannabis, especially those that are prone to asthma, allergies, or have a compromised-immune system.
