TentaStart for Hemp Products


The use of products of the hemp plant “cannabis” from useful hemp (poor in cannabinoids) is gaining popularity. For example, hemp seeds, hemp protein powder, hemp oils, CBD oils, cannabis oil or other hemp products can be found on the market.

The marketing of hemp products brings some challenges, because hemp contains the psychoactive substance tetrahydrocannabinol (THC or Δ9-THC). Commercial hemp contains only a very small amount of the psychoactive cannabinoid THC (less than 0.2%). To avoid endangering the health of consumers, the levels of THC in products containing hemp must be monitored regularly. And this is where our QSI laboratory comes in to help you with the special challenges of hemp products.

Our experts from Tentamus partner QSI advise start-ups on everything from product development, declaration and advertising, to quality assurance measures for products already on the market. This way you can place your products safely and legally on the market.

Founders of start-ups with hemp products receive a complete package for their products from us: All necessary analyses, advice around labeling and approvals, as well as support in hygiene issues and audits.

Also for hemp products you will receive a 10% discount on all prices of the analyses in the first year of cooperation!
