Why MCR Labs

At Massachusetts Cannabis Research Labs, our aim is to provide a green laboratory that is good for patients, cultivators, the environment, and the community.


Massachusetts Cannabis Research Labs (MCR Labs) is an ISO-17025 accredited marijuana testing and research laboratory.


The core of our experience comes from contract research organizations (CROs) in the pharmaceutical industry. This means that we are experts in:

    • Regulatory compliance – cGMP (current good manufacturing practice) is the stringent regulatory framework used in the pharmaceutical industry and trusted by the FDA. We base our systems on this framework, adapted to the international ISO-17025 format. Therefore, we will be ready for any regulations that are placed on the industry going forward for a seamless transition into a federally regulated product when the time comes.
    • Analytical method development – we can adapt to anything that is required now or in the future by regulatory agencies or is of interest in R&D
    • Formulation and extraction – we have experience analyzing many molecules in a variety of different matrices.

We are using very well-developed methodologies from the pharmaceutical field and applying them to the extraordinarily effective MMJ compounds and matrices. Our CRO background within the pharmaceutical industry makes us flexible in application and knowledgeable in regulatory compliance to an extent unmatched by any other subfield in that industry.

At MCR Labs we are creating a testing environment on par with the highest degree of fidelity found in the pharmaceutical industry to ensure the safety and quality of MMJ products within the regulations of the DPH.
