Cannabis Testing

If you’re planning on legally importing cannabis seeds, for some destinations, you’ll need an ISTA Blue Certificate. Coordinating the necessary inspections and tests before obtaining this certificate can be daunting if you’re unfamiliar with the procedure. At CannaEx Trades, we handle it all for you. Our skilled team will work closely with the testing labs and licensing authority to ensure your seeds are authorized with minimal inconvenience.

What is a Blue ISTA Certificate?

A Blue ISTA Certificate (Blue International Seed Sample Certificate or BIC) is an official document issued by accredited labs under the International Seed Testing Association (ISTA). Unlike other general certifications, this focuses specifically on the quality, purity, and germination results of a particular seed sample.

It provides assurance that:

  • The seed sample has undergone rigorous and standardized testing.
  • It meets global standards of seed quality.
  • The results represent a precise snapshot of that particular seed sample’s quality.

When are Blue ISTA Certificates Required?

A Blue ISTA Certificate is required when:

  • Engaging in international trade of cannabis or hemp seeds.
  • Ensuring the seed sample meets the import standards of the recipient country.
  • There’s a need for an internationally recognized and standardized evaluation of a seed sample.
  • If you’re exporting seeds from regions that recognize ISTA’s authority, a Blue ISTA Certificate is often indispensable. Many countries across the world rely on this certification for smooth customs and import processes.
