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.
