Quality and Risk in the Cannabis Supply Chain

Link to Zoom Recording


The quality of cannabis products is impacted by many different factors. From seed to sale, positive and negative influences can affect the quality of the product. Aspects, such as soil composition and consistency, harvesting, processing, extracting, sampling, sample preparation, and packaging, all feed into the final quality of cannabis products. Risks along the supply chain can be identified and eliminated or reduced to enhance quality. Testing of cannabis products by an ISO/IEC 17025 accredited laboratory is one way to reduce risks and ensure the quality of products. Accreditation of laboratories by an internationally recognized accreditation body can demonstrate the laboratory’s ability to produce precise and accurate test data, through continuous oversight to ensure technical competence is maintained. Join this webinar where we will evaluate factors that could influence the quality of cannabis products from seed to final packaging.Presenter:
