About Us

Quality Experience Quality Results

Founded in 2018, Genesis Testing Labs (GTL) was formed by an ownership team that believes in the value of medicinal cannabis both from the medicinal and financial perspective.  The team identified the need for more precise analytic testing to ensure cannabis products are safe for the consumers of Oklahoma.  GTL built their first analytical compliance testing laboratory with a firm foundation in quality and a duty to protect public health.  Through the development of our quality systems, policies, procedures and protocols and the addition of the very best professionals in the industry, we have been able to achieve our goals.  Our focus is to partner with our customers, state agencies, and trade organizations to create the very best cannabis market in the United States.  We at Genesis value our customers and interactions within the industry and strive to continue learning and developing our knowledge and expertise.  We are currently building our second analytical compliance lab in Broken Arrow to continue to support our customers and the Oklahoma cannabis industry.  

Our Story

      Genesis was first discussed and agreed upon as a viable idea and concept over an evening fish fry at cousin Tony’s house in Grove, Oklahoma.  Cousins Tony Brixey and Joe Lantz, along with some close friends and family, had an epic conversation about wanting to be part of the green movement and alternative health options for the state.  We discussed the need for quality health protection and the idea of starting an analytical compliance lab was brought up by Tony.  He had a dream about it one night after much thought and prayer and decided to introduce the idea to us.  The idea started from hearing about all the horror stories from his wife Janell about current treatment methods and types of pharmaceuticals for hospice patients.  It got him thinking that not only would cannabis create a viable medicinal alternative, but it would need to be regulated and controlled from a safety standpoint.  So, what did we do?

     We decided to go for it!  We went out and gathered a group of family and friends as investors and searched for a lab director who could be the guru of this project and the universe brought us James Rhudy.  If it were not for James, we would never have become who we are and set our company aloft on this storied journey.  Glasses raised to you Mr. Rhudy!  Thus, Genesis Testing Labs was born and would become the premier cannabis compliance testing lab in the state of Oklahoma.

     Our core values consist of providing transparency of precise testing results, educating our customers and the industry, and protecting public health and safety.  We believe that by partnering with our customers and creating a long-lasting relationship they ultimately prosper in the industry and so do we.   We take pride in the services we provide and end each day knowing we did our very best to provide consistent testing results and a reliable customer service experience.
