8. A method for determining a cannabis cultivation condition comprising:
obtaining a carbon isotope value of a cannabis sample; and
executing on a processor one or modules to perform the following steps:
classifying the carbon isotope value of the cannabis sample against one or more threshold criteria relating to a likelihood a cultivation condition has occurred;
evaluating whether the carbon isotope value is above or below the one or more threshold criteria;
further classifying a below-threshold carbon isotope value by accessing a database of authentic material isotope values and comparing a probability density function describing the authentic material isotope values; and,
based on the comparison, determining a below-threshold likelihood ratio that the below-threshold carbon isotope value is consistent with the likelihood the cultivation condition has occurred.
