    Abstract

    The vast majority of  US states and other countries require quality control testing of cannabis and cannabis processed products prior to release for distribution. The purpose of product testing is to provide patients with the assurance that the medicine is potent and pure and safe for use. Analytical testing also assures that the contents match the label claim, that there is batch to batch consistency, and the product is potent and pure throughout shelf life. Each state and country has its own set of testing requirements and regulations for the analytical laboratories. With these requirements come challenges for both the regulators and the regulated industry. 

    Learning Objectives: 

    1. Participants will learn how medical cannabis products are tested and the quality standards
    2. Participants will learn about the regulatory testing requirements in the US and other countries
    3. Participants will appreciate the various testing challenges as state programs evolve
