As states begin to regulate legalized cannabis, the concern of how Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) apply to this unique industry cannot be understated. While regulations vary from state to state the quality systems under which cannabis products are grown and manufactured have similarities that can begin to pave the way for putting practices and procedures in place to meet compliance expectations, including those of testing and quality control of in-process materials, finished batches and packaged/labeled products. 
The time is right for the Cannabis industry to begin assessing your manufacturing processes and implementing sound and effective quality systems in order to help you begin to prepare for GMP regulations. Stay ahead of the curve, standardize your product quality and be a leader in your industry.
