HOW TO SUBMIT SAMPLES TO AMERICANNA

Let’s get Started!

Before we start, it’s important to state that shipping cannabis and cannabis-derived products through the mail can be risky business. While we hold appropriate DEA licensing, products originating from outside of Florida can only be tested if they are derived from Cannabis sativa L. which qualify as Industrial Hemp. Please contact us before you start if you have any concerns.

Please read our Terms and Conditions prior to submitting samples for testing.

SAMPLE Labeling

Samples must be properly labeled with a minimum of the following information:

  • Company Name
  • Sample Name
  • Batch/Lot ID (optional)
  • Test Type
  • Turn Around Time

CHAIN OF CUSTODY

The Americanna Chain of Custody form will organize your samples into an Order and ensure your samples are processed in an accurate manner. Please complete this form and include with your shipment. Upon arrival, notification will be sent to the email address on file confirming receipt of your sample order and providing the assigned Order ID. The Order ID can be referenced in any communication with the lab.

Supporting Documentation and Shipping

We recommend including any supporting documentation you may have with your samples. If your package is selected for inspection, having any cultivation/manufacturing licenses, or certificates of analysis, may expedite the release of your package. If registration or certification is required under the hemp’s origin state, Americanna may request evidence of of those documents.

When your samples are prepped and ready for submission, be sure to package everything in a sturdy shipping box, as opposed to an envelope.

Please submit a completed chain of custody form as well as labeled samples in your package.
