Steep Hill


Steep Hill is an independently owned and operated cannabis analysis, biotechnology, and research and development facility. We seek to empower cultivators, dispensaries, manufacturers, and consumers with a transparent understanding of cannabis science.



Users of cannabis products depend on testing to ensure that the products are safe for use/consumption and that the labeled potency can be trusted. Proper testing is imperative to this assurance, and confidence in the laboratories that perform this testing may be achieved through accreditation to the ISO/IEC 17025 Standard.

A2LA offers two accreditation tracks for cannabis testing laboratories. Both offer independent, third-party accreditation assessments crafted to meet both the Medical Marijuana and Recreational Adult Use markets. The first track consists of using ISO/IEC 17025:2005 as the primary framework, along with any additional, state-specific requirements. A2LA also offers an optional second tract, which adds to the first accreditation track the additional accreditation requirements derived from Americans for Safe Access (ASA) Patient Focused Certification (PFC) Program for testing laboratories. In this way, A2LA can provide assurance that all state regulatory as well as industry-specific requirements are being met by the laboratory.

The principles of the standard can help involve employees in working toward a shared goal, high quality data to support the industry. Investment in ANAB laboratory accreditation helps protect the public’s health by ensuring that regulatory agencies, can act quickly on high quality analytical data from accredited laboratories when those laboratories detect a problem in the product supply.
