Meet The Expert



Mike co-founded Hound Labs on a simple idea – that the novel combination of science and technology would be the foundation of a cannabis breathalyzer that balances workplace safety and employee privacy. With more than 25 years studying and practicing emergency medicine in the United States and in developing countries, Mike brings unique perspectives and practical approaches to solving some of the most challenging scientific and medical problems.

One of Mike's favorite responsibilities while working as a physician is the opportunity to teach residents. Mike's blogs help to educate and inform readers about some of the complexities and challenges that the Hound Labs R&D teams encountered as they developed an ultra-sensitive breath technology platform that is the core of the HOUND® CANNABIS BREATHALYZER.

How to Evaluate a Cannabis Breathalyzer?

Cannabis breathalyzers and breath testing technology at its core have varying capabilities and features – it is critical to understand what’s important when deciding which to select for your organization.


Why Testing with Human Subjects Matters

Since founding Hound Labs, Inc. in 2014, I worked with our team to prioritize “R&D” (research and development). A critical part of the research necessary to build a cannabis breathalyzer requires more than just lab simulations. To truly understand the effectiveness of our technology, we must continually test people – not lab rats.


Approximately How Many Different Substances Does Human Breath Contain?

The unique characteristics of breath have fascinated the medical and scientific communities for years but building a deep understanding of breath requires advanced ultra-sensitive technology.


CEO, Dr. Mike Lynn Shares His Perspectives on Creating a Cannabis Breathalyzer that is Easy-to-Use

Hound Labs needed to shrink a piece of lab equipment about the size of a pony into a carrying case, maintain ultra-sensitivity, and ensure the solution was easy to use.


The Challenges of Building a Cannabis Breathalyzer

A marijuana breathalyzer is 1 billion times more sensitive than an alcohol breathalyzer.
