Cannabis science is at an all-time high. Following the November elections, four states voted in favor of marijuana legalization. California, Nevada, Massachusetts, and Maine all voted in favor of legalized use, sale, and consumption of recreational marijuana. Another four states (Florida, Arkansas, North Dakota, and Montana) passed medical cannabis legislation.
The growing need for safe cannabis products has resulted in a boom for cannabis quality control testing laboratories. Join us as we take a closer look at this industry and examine the analytical tests and instruments utilized. We will discuss some of the major challenges and opportunities, as well as take a look ahead to new frontiers in cannabis research.
As an attendee, you will:
- Get an overview of cannabis QC testing
- Understand the lab tests and instruments used
- Become aware of current challenges in QC testing & research
- Learn where you can get more information and connect with cannabis experts
