Compliance testing is the key to getting your cannabis products to market. But also ensuring your product safety and label accuracy require not only good laboratory analyses, but consistent and representative sampling. After all, people are relying on this information! The biggest impact on accurate and compliant testing results is how the sampling of your products is done. Sampling is the most overlooked part of cannabis compliance testing. To make things even worse each state seems to have their own sampling requirements as far as number of samples, sample amounts and batch size.
Through all of this there are basic sampling Do’s and Don’ts to ensure that you are compliant with your regulators and are providing the most accurate data to your customers. Whether you are a laboratory performing sampling, a cultivator, an infused product manufacturer, or an extraction facility, sampling and sampling practices and techniques are essential to your business. The presentation will discuss the importance of sampling, the ethics of sampling, and the basics of how to sample correctly.
