Testing the Weed Testers, Ctd.

Last month, we reported that none of the so-called medical cannabis laboratories testing local supplies for potency and safety have passed an independent, third-party audit — which is necessary to prove lab validity in the real lab world. To that end, several mainstream scientists had formed the Alliance for Cannabis Science, based in Montana, to voluntarily provide such audits. Now, the Alliance has a peer. On March 1, two Oakland labs, Steep Hill and CW Analytical, said they were forming the Association of California Cannabis Laboratories in Oakland “to address the growing need for standardization in the cannabis quality assurance industry.” The two labs met to with representatives from a third lab, Pure Analytics, “to discuss policies and technologies in the evolving industry.”
