Cannabinoid testing is the first item in the list referring to identification and potency. The TLC methodology refers to this requirement only. TLC analysis is currently not allowed under current law for for the primary testing of commercial products for sale. However, it does not cover private testing by TLC by home growers, end users, and others wanting to test their own products.

Also, TLC can be used as a preliminary guide by commercial growers and manufacturers before sending their products off to be tested in a state-licensed testing facility.
