The United States Cannabis Testing Market Size is expected to reach USD 4.8 Billion by 2033, at a CAGR of 10.3% during the forecast period 2023 to 2033.
Cannabis testing involves identifying active components and key chemical constituents in a marijuana specimen. This screening also includes the detection of fungus and bacteria, both of which can cause disease if not treated. Cannabinoids and terpenes are the primary active ingredients in marijuana that have therapeutic properties. The specimen has a high concentration of an effective component. Cannabis screening is done with analytical techniques such as gas chromatography, liquid chromatography, and spectrometry; professional laboratories in the area offer marijuana testing services. The presence of pesticide residues in a specimen indicates cleanliness and effectiveness. Cannabinoids and terpenes are the primary active ingredients in marijuana that have therapeutic properties. The sample has a high concentration of a therapeutic component. Cannabis testing is the examination of an individual sample of cannabis to determine THC, CBD, and terpene levels, as well as contaminants and impurities such as residual solvents, mold, disease, pests, or pesticide residues. Each state and municipality can set its own standards and regulations for what should be tested and printed on cannabis labels. Individual growers may also choose more stringent standards, including having their samples tested for CBC and CBG levels. This testing can only be done by certified chemists and lab technicians. Previously, cannabis cultivation and sales were prohibited for several years.

Legalization of medical cannabis, combined with the growing number of cannabis testing laboratories. Medical cannabis has proven effective in a variety of medical applications, including reducing chemotherapy-induced nausea, stimulating appetite in AIDS patients, controlling muscular spasms in multiple sclerosis patients, and lowering intraocular pressure in glaucoma patients. Governments are legalizing the use of medical cannabis because of its health benefits. As medical cannabis becomes legal, the demand for analytical testing of cannabis to ensure its safety prior to human consumption has increased during forecast period. According to industry experts, the number of cannabis testing labs is expected to increase at a significant CAGR over the forecast period, owing to rising legalization and adoption of cannabis testing. These trends point to an increase in demand for analytical instrumentation, software, and services for cannabis testing during forecast period.
Lack of uniform rules and regulations may hamper the growth of United States cannabis testing market during forecast period. Cannabis has been legalized as a result of its increased medical use. However, the absence of uniform testing standards or stringent rules and regulations has emerged as a major concern.
- In 2023, the spectroscopy segment accounted for the largest revenue share over the forecast period.
Based on the type, the United States cannabis testing market is segmented into chromatography and spectroscopy. Among these, the spectroscopy segment has the largest revenue share over the forecast period. This is owing to the numerous benefits provided by spectroscopy technology, such as real-time analysis, high throughput, and minimal sample preparation requirements. Furthermore, it is more cost effective than its counterpart, which is expected to accelerate the adoption of spectroscopy.
- In 2023, the potency testing segment accounted for the largest revenue share over the forecast period.
Based on the service type, the United States cannabis testing market is segmented into potency testing, terpene profiling, heavy metal testing, pesticide screening, and microscopy testing. Among these, the potency testing segment has the largest revenue share over the forecast period. The market is being driven by the increasing use of effective potency testing techniques such as gas chromatography (GC) and high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) for testing samples, as well as the growing demand for examining the potency of various cannabinoids, particularly CBD (Cannabidiol) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) in cultivated cannabis.
- In 2023, the cannabis cultivators/growers segment accounted for the largest revenue share over the forecast period.
Based on the end-use, the United States cannabis testing market is segmented into cannabis drug manufacturers, cannabis cultivators/growers, and others. Among these, the cannabis cultivators/growers’ segment has the largest revenue share over the forecast period. Cultivators are signing agreements with testing laboratories and research centers as governments in many countries restrict THC content in cannabis products. Furthermore, these growers must sell different plant varieties based on their CBD and THC content to manufacturers and wholesalers at different prices. These are the dominant factors driving the segmental growth.
