Early Lab Tests Show 18-Percent Failure Rate in California’s Cannabis Market Since July 1

The statistics didn’t improve over the next month, either. From July 1 to Aug. 29, the Bureau of Cannabis Control received 10,695 certificates of analysis; 1,904 batches had failed.

That failure rate spans all major product categories, although it’s notably more pronounced among edibles. Out of 1,979 tested batches, 651 batches of edibles failed their laboratory tests (33 percent).
