Since 2010, Dr. Land has been involved with cannabis testing and regulation in over a dozen states and several countries - as co-founder of Halent Labs in Sacramento, CA and, since 2013, as Chief Scientific Consultant for Steep Hill. Steep Hill was the first commercial cannabis testing laboratory and is currently a leading cannabis testing, research, and analytics firm located in Berkeley, CA with affiliates in numerous states and countries.
Within the past few years, regulations have been implemented regarding testing of legal market cannabis and hemp. Land will discuss the evolution of cannabis testing and how various jurisdictions have gone about deciding on the details of what to require and not. Land will also review the current landscape of cannabis testing including some recent statistics, some pitfalls encountered, and a proposed path forward.
