Mainstreaming Cannabinoids - Path To Legalization


Mainstreaming Cannabinoids - Everything you need to know from regulators, legislators, and scientists
This discussion will shed specific light on the nature of Current Good Manufacturing Practices (CGMPs), which regulate information available on public state-run websites and other sources that document the minimum requirements for the methods, facilities, and controls used in manufacturing, processing, and packaging of a drug product to assure it is safe for use. The conversation will focus on the fact that these same standards should be applicable to medical cannabis products presently in development that may be sold in the United States and will amplify the study and the need for standardized testing protocols and methodologies to ensure consumer safety.
