Synthetic cannabinoid drug test expanded to include 12 new compounds, including 4 next generation drugs not yet banned. 03/18/13

Redwood Toxicology Laboratory will expand the synthetic cannabinoid laboratory test for oral fluid (March 18th) and urine (March 25th).

As the pioneering lab to establish testing for "synthetic marijuana," RTL understands that "drug chemists" are quick to change the active ingredients to circumvent federal regulations. Through vigilant scientific analysis on hundreds of specimens, and observed changes to positivity rates, RTL verifies the extensive manufacture and use of many new un-regulated chemicals.

The 12-drug test expansion features eight compounds banned by the DEA (AM-694, JWH-019, JWH-122, JWH-200, JWH-203, JWH-398, MAM-2201, RCS-8), and four next-generation compounds (AM-1248, AKB-48, UR-144, and XLR-11).

Customers will now receive analysis for a total of 19 synthetic cannabinoids. There will be no increase in cost and the testing methodology will remain the same (LC/MS/MS).
