Webinar Recording: Start Clean and Stay Clean: Strategies to Clean Up Post-Harvest Microbial Contamination Across the Cannabis Supply Chain

Published: Aug 03, 2021   

This webinar was hosted by Analytical Cannabis in May 2020 and the speaker was Dr. Roger Kern, Agate Biosciences, LLC.

Meeting government microbial bioburden standards can be challenging, especially for flower. There are, however, safe and effective treatments that enable plant material to pass state limits on microbial contamination. In this webinar, we will be exploring these treatments including ozone, microwaves, and irradiation. In addition, we will look at approaches for maintaining low levels of microbes once the materials are on the shelf. These methods can be used in concert to ensure compliance and healthful products along the entire supply chain. Adopting the proper strategy assures the quality of the product, as well as maximizing public safety and profits.

This webinar covered:

  • State limits for cannabis microbial contamination
  • Safe and effective treatments for remediation of microbes
  • Strategies to limit microbial contamination in cannabis crop
  • Methods to ensure compliance along the entire cannabis supply chain
