We use Canada Post for our deliveries, be aware that the kits will be delivered to you on normal workdays (that is, not on statutory holidays). Also, if there is a postal strike – we will do our best to make alternate arrangements for the delivery.
There are three critical points in preparing your sample for analysis in the KEY-BOX. When we analyze samples in our lab, we have finely tuned instruments and controlled equipment for these steps. At home they are equally important and will have a big impact on the outcome of your results.
- How dry your sample is before you begin processing. The drier the sample is, the better the results will be. Moisture in the sample will add unnecessary bulk to your sample material and will mean that you are testing less than you could be. This will decrease the overall concentration of cannabinoids when we test your sample.
- How finely ground the sample is before you begin the mixing step. The smaller or more finely ground your sample is, the more surfaces will be able to interact with the mixture in Tube A. This will mean that the mixing step is more efficient, that is, more of the cannabinoids will be combining with the liquid. This will improve your results considerably.
- How well you mix your sample. The mixing step is the most sensitive step. This is when the magic happens and it requires some focused attention and stamina (as well as arm strength). We have had feedback that families have shared the shaking to make sure that the sample is well mixed before the final filtration step.
In addition to these three key steps, filling the measuring spoon is also important. Underfilling the spoon will mean the measurement in our lab is lower than expected; overfilling the spoon will mean that the measurements will be higher than expected. Neither of these is preferable and certainly not repeatable.

First, clean it up using paper towels (throw them into regular garbage) and then wash the area with a mild soap (dish soap will work) and rinse with water. Then wash your hands thoroughly.
Finally, call us toll free (1-844-319-8133) and we will send you a new Tube A.
If you have spilled this on your clothes, remove them.
Thoroughly rinse any skin that was contacted under cool running water for a few minutes to be sure that it has all been washed away. Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and warm water, and clean your clothing as normal.
You may notice some irritation on the affected area.
Finally, call us on our toll free line (1-844-319-8133) and we will send you a new Tube A.
As you may have noticed in the video, there is still liquid left over in Tube A when we begin the filtration step. This is perfectly fine.
In fact we need a minimum of 2 mL in Tube B of filtered product to provide you with the results you need.
If we run into a problem, we will let you know as soon as we can.
Please call us on our toll free line (1-844-319-8133) or email us at KEY-BOX@keystonelabs.ca. We will track this down for you.
The return shipment will be 2 business days back to our lab. We will work very hard to have the samples evaluated within 5 business days. When we are finished, we will email you the results.
