San Jose Medical Marijuana Collective Elemental Wellness Introduces Revolutionary QuantaCann Testing System
Jose medical cannabis club Elemental Wellness Center has adopted Steep
Hills's cutting-edge in-house marijuana testing system, QuantaCann.
San Jose, CA
Elemental Wellness Center has long been considered a leader in providing
only the highest quality medicine to its patients. Now the premier San Jose medical cannabis dispensary
has taken another leap forward in patient care and quality control by
adopting the latest innovation in cannabis analysis: QuantaCann. This
on-site testing system tests samples for terpenes, moisture and
cannabinoids such as THC, THCA and CBD profiles, so patients can easily
find the right medication for their specific medical needs.
The revolutionary technology allows Elemental Wellness to quickly
analyze flowers, hash, and kief on site. "Now there's no wait for test
results," explained Daniel Hughes of Elemental Wellness. "By being able
to test on the spot at the dispensary, the hard science is at our
fingertips. We can instantly identify THC and CBD-rich strains, and
provide that information to our members.
Elemental Wellness patients are increasingly interested in knowing
the cannabinoid content of their medicine. While THC is still the
best-known cannabinoid and has many healing properties, many patients
are also seeking strains with higher CBD compounds, which have medical
qualities but don not produce the "high" feeling associated with THC.
Studies indicate CBDs are effective for treating a variety of medical
conditions. They can be effective for relieving pain, convulsion,
inflammation, anxiety and nausea, and can inhibit cancer cell growth.
CBDs are even used to treat schizophrenia. Elemental Wellness Center's
use of QuantaCann makes it possible to pinpoint which products are
highest in THC, and CBD, and make that information available to
"QuantaCann represents a game-changing solution to the challenges related to inventory and quality control at medical marijuana dispensaries," said AnnaRae Grabstein, CEO of Steep Hill Lab.
QuantaCann was developed by Steep Hill Lab, a leading cannabis
testing laboratory located in Oakland, California. The technology uses
lab-quality near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) instrumentation to test
the sample. Advanced proprietary multivariate statistical computation
software then analyzes the data and compares the results to a database
that contains information collected from thousands of other samples.
The beauty of QuantaCann is that it allows dispensaries to conduct
evaluations of the medicines brought in by their members, determine if
they need to stock up on that item, and ensure their inventory is fresh
in only a few minute. It not only gives Elemental Wellness the ability
to aggregate the collective's inventory, it helps them achieve better
"Patients have the right to know what is in the medicine they take,"
said Amanda Snyder, Member Services Manager at Elemental Wellness.
"QuantaCann is another way we give our patients the high level of care
