The Future of Cannabis Testing

Testing in the cannabis industry can look different depending on the state your production is located, the products you are making, and your customer manufacturing specifications.

As the industry grows, a federal approach to consumer safety and quality assurance will be adopted, likely from the food or pharmaceutical industries. Learn how ECC Test Lab is working to ensure that our testing facility, staff, and the industry are ready for that transition.
