Regulators in Vermont have reportedly licensed the state’s first recreational cannabis testing lab.

According to a press announcement, Bia Diagnostics, an ISO 17025 accredited lab based in Colchester, VT, has become the first company to be licensed to test adult-use cannabis ahead of the market’s launch later this year.

The company has been a licensed hemp testing lab for the past three years.

Vermont approved adult-use cannabis sales in 2020 but the retail access isn’t expected to be available until this October.

Steep Hill Labs, a multi-state cannabis testing company, also announced its plans to open an adult-use testing lab in Vermont this May. That plan is based on a “pre-approval” status from the Vermont government.

*Update: This article was updated on June 16, 2022, to correct Steel Hill Labs to Steep Hill Labs.
