About

PSI Labs is an ISO-accredited Safety Compliance Facility, licensed by the State of Michigan to provide cannabis testing services to MMFLA facilities. We are devoted to research, advocacy and quality control testing within the retail cannabis industry. Using the most advanced techniques in analytical chemistry, PSI Labs provides a full host of cannabis testing services, allowing Michigan’s licensed provisioning centers, processors and growers, as well as caregivers and patients the assurance that their products are of the highest quality.

Our services include on-site sampling, cannabinoid profiling (potency test), terpenoid profiling, foreign matter exams (mold, mildew, fungus and foreign material screening using microscopy), microbiological screening, mycotoxin screening, moisture testing, water activity testing, residual solvent screening, chemical residue testing (pesticide and fungicide screening) and heavy metal screening.

PSI Labs also offers individualized consultation services. PSI Labs provides comprehensive services for licensed provisioning centers, edibles and concentrate processors producers, growers and breeders, as well as caregivers who require the expertise of an advanced laboratory.

ABOUT BEN & LEV

Lifelong friends Ben Rosman and Lev Spivak-Birndorf founded PSI Labs in January 2015.

Benjamin J. Rosman, JD

Ben Rosman earned his J.D. in 2012 from Wayne State University, and his B.A in 2004 from the University of Colorado at Boulder. He is admitted to the bars of the State of Michigan and the United States District Court for the Western District of Michigan. Ben is a member of the Michigan Bar Association’s Marijuana Law Section.

Prior to cofounding PSI Labs, Ben began lobbying on behalf of PSI Labs and the greater medical marijuana industry. Since then, he has continued his efforts, working within the community as an ambassador for Safety Compliance Facilities, in the interest of good laboratory practice, sound science and patient safety.

In February 2018, Ben founded MICIL (Michigan Coalition of Independent Cannabis Testing Laboratories). MICIL is comprised of independent third-party cannabis testing laboratories. MICIL’s core mission is to use its unified voice to effect meaningful change, focusing on policy and legislation in matters of rule making, cannabis science and patient safety.

Ben is a medical marijuana patient with epilepsy. He has successfully used medical cannabis to reduce his pharmaceutical seizure medications under the care of his neurologist.

Lev Spivak-Birndorf, Msc, PhD

Lev Spivak-Birndorf completed a post-doctoral research fellowship in metal isotope geochemistry at Indiana University. Prior to working at Indiana University, Lev received his doctorate in geochemistry and cosmochemistry at Arizona State University.

In 2011, Lev was awarded the highly competitive NASA Earth & Space Science Fellowship to fund his doctoral research. Lev has over 10 years of experience operating and maintaining a variety of analytical chemistry instruments. He has considerable experience generating and presenting empirical chemical data as an author of numerous peer-reviewed scientific papers and international conference presentations.

His work is largely based on the powerful analytical technique of mass spectrometry, which is a critical component to the testing of both naturally occurring compounds and undesirable adulterants in medical cannabis.

Lev is a medical marijuana patient with Crohn’s Disease. He has completely eliminated all pharmaceutical medications from his therapy regimen, and now treats his symptoms with medical cannabis.

PSI Labs’ success reflects Lev and Ben’s passion for the science, advocacy, research and the medical efficacy of cannabis. After their start in 2014, PSI Labs has grown to become the largest and most well-known cannabis testing laboratory in the state of Michigan. Devoted to research, advocacy, and quality control, PSI Labs has provided testing and safety compliance screening for temporary operators, state licensed facilities, patients, caregivers, legal defense teams, investigative news organizations and more. We’ve also collaborated on research projects with the University of Michigan as well as individuals trying to improve their processes and develop new, more science-proven methods.

PSI LABS’ MISSION AND GOALS

Scientia Potestas Est

PSI Labs’ mission is to be the leading cannabis testing laboratory in Michigan and beyond, providing professional, reliable, accurate cannabis testing, having the most expertise, experience, infrastructure and best reputation in the industry. We strive for total transparency in all that we do.

PSI Labs wants to inspire people that they can empower themselves with data – seeing cannabis testing beyond mandatory compliance testing and marketing. That they can use data from PSI Labs to develop more sound, science-based methods, collaborate to do important research, and perhaps most importantly, help individuals make informed decisions about dosing and medical product purchasing for themselves. “Knowledge is Power!”
