Starting a laboratory tailored to the cannabis industry can be both challenging and rewarding. Each state and local jurisdiction will have its own set of rules and requirements that must be followed. In order to be successful, laboratory owners and personnel must understand the scientific challenges, the business environment and the regulatory structure of each state. Understanding the common pitfalls and learning experiences can help you get ahead.
In this on-demand webinar, Dr. Jeff Angermann lays it all out in a clear, concise format. From getting started with purchasing decisions to ongoing regulatory compliance, there are a lot of uncertainties in getting a cannabis lab running. The complex web of state regulations mixed with customer expectations can be daunting. Regulatory compliance is constantly changing and as new states legalize cannabis, new markets develop new regulations, with some based off of other states. Navigating regulatory compliance, using the right methods and managing your clients’ expectations is no easy task. In an age of misinformation and click bait media, coupled with an industry full of opinions, it is particularly important for labs to make their voice heard loud and clear. Education is a good way to get started.
