Cannabis Testing Standards and Solutions
3C CEO Nic Easley to Keynote Cannabis Testing Conferences held by Pittcon, PerkinElmer and Discuss Solutions for Difficulties Facing Cannabis Labs
By: 3C-Comprehensive Cannabis Consulting
There have been nearly two dozen separate incidents in Denver in which over 200,000 products have been recalled due to pesticide contamination issues, indicating potentially dangerous gaps in current testing programs. Some recalled products were even released back into circulation, largely due to the fact that no Colorado labs are actually certified by the state to test for pesticides. This situation is becoming untenable and is a symptom of a larger problem in cannabis testing. Therefore, at two major upcoming industry events, Comprehensive Cannabis Consulting’s (3C) CEO Nic Easley will discuss cannabis lab procedures and solutions that can improve the reliability of testing results, thus reducing industry liability.
“We need to help our labs understand that there are required standards that labs in other industries follow in order to produce consistent results,” said Easley. “Inaccurate or faulty testing can be worse than no testing at all. Mislabeled products and inaccurate data affect the entire industry negatively, from the growers who produce the product originally all the way to the end user, and everyone in between."
Easley will deliver his findings and recommendations in keynote speeches at the Cannabis Industry Journal’s "Cannabis Labs Conference,"
Easley, along with 3C Chief Cultivation Officer Adam Koh, have written a position paper on pesticide use in cannabis, an issue intertwined with achieving accurate laboratory testing of cannabis. “Pesticide Position Paper,” is available for free download on the 3C website at: http://www.3ccannabis.com/
