The month of October is “Cannabis Testing Month” at GenTech as staff travel to attend MJBizCon in Las Vegas this week. If you’re at the show, be sure to stop by GenTech’s booth (#C9112), check out our in-show specials, and ask a member of our team how GenTech can help you equip your cannabis lab for less.
Since we’re focusing on cannabis testing, this week’s Tech Tip pulls another video from the archives and gives it a face lift: Why Test Cannabis?
As of this writing, the medical use of cannabis (with a doctor’s recommendation) is legal in 36 states, 5 territories and the District of Columbia, and recreational use is legalized in 18 states, the District of Columbia and 2 territories. Despite cannabis remaining illegal federally, many compounds are approved for use in prescription drugs and various consumable products. Of course ensuring regulatory compliance is key for cannabis businesses, but paramount for consumers is testing to ensure the safety and quality of consumables.
