About Us

Desert Valley Testing came to be from a need our founder, Tabitha had. In 2008, Tabitha woke up one morning with cloudy vision and an abnormally shaped pupil that continued to grow. After two years her doctors finally diagnosed her with a rare eye condition called Iridocorneal Endothelial Syndrome, or ICE. Following multiple surgeries, loss of vision in her left eye, and no relief from the extreme pain and pressure her condition was causing her, Tabitha’s doctor recommended medical marijuana. Shortly after, she obtained her patient card and began researching strains that would help relieve her ailments.

After visiting many dispensaries in search of strains high in cannabigerol or CBG, a cannabinoid famous for its ability to reduce inflammation and treat intraocular pressure, Tabitha noticed that not all medical marijuana being sold in Arizona was being tested.

Since she was already an accomplished organic chemist with experience using Gas Chromatography (GC), Gas Chromatography Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS) and High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) instrumentation, Tabitha decided to start testing her own marijuana. Through that she realized that every patient should know what’s in their medical marijuana so that they are also able to choose the appropriate strain that has the most benefits for their condition.

Desert Valley Testing opened its doors in November of 2014 and is continuously dedicated to the testing of cannabis products and the education of why testing is important. We believe in ethical, accurate data in combination with making sure the patients receiving the data understand it. Cannabis education is a group effort and DVT is motivated to be a leader within it.
