If a Bulk Lot must undergo additional testing, but the licence holder has already sold all cannabis in the Bulk Lot, QA Technicians can reclaim a portion of the Bulk Lot's retained sample and use it to create a new lab report.

Required permission(s): production_read, retention_sample_update

  1. In the Productions module, select the affected production.

  2. Select the affected Bulk Lot. This opens the Bulk Lot's Profile.

  3. Open the Retained Samples tab.

  4. Select a retained sample to open its profile.

  5. Adjust the Weight, Volume, and Discrete Units fields to reflect the quantities remaining in the sample after a portion is removed for the new lab report. For example, if a sample is 26g, and 10g will be deducted for the lab report, update the Weight field to 16g.

    • Please note that the Volume and Discrete Units fields will only appear for Bulk Lots that use those units of measure.

  6. Click Save. This transfers the sample portion back into the Bulk Lot's inventory weight.

  7. Open the Lab Reports tab.

  8. Click New to Create a New Lab Report using the weight, volume, and units taken from the retained sample.


Once the laboratory returns the test results, QA Technicians must Update the Lab Report with CoA Results.
