    Abstract

    Currently in the cannabis industry, there are many different regulations and guidelines. From the federal level with the USDA and DEA, to each individual state, testing laboratories and their clients have many regulations to understand and follow. Not only do regulations differ from federal to state level, depending on the type of cannabis tested, marijuana or hemp, those regulations differ as well. The regulations and guidelines in the cannabis industry are rapidly changing. The purpose of this discussion is to educate on and discuss the current testing regulations and guidelines in the cannabis industry.  Attendees will be able to understand testing requirements on both a federal and state level.  Attendees will also be able to understand which states require ISO/IEC 17025 accreditation as a part of the testing laboratory licensing process and the benefits of ISO/IEC 17025 accreditation in the cannabis industry.

    Learning Objectives:

    1. General testing requirements for cannabis in the United States.

    2. Benefits of ISO/IEC 17025 accreditation in the cannabis industry.
