Striving for Product Quality Assurance in the Wild West of Medical Cannabis

Since the medicinal properties of cannabis and its components were first recognized for a wide range of ailments, debates about its safety have loomed large. Not least of these concerns has been the quality of the cannabis product administered and how its components transform during use. As states have begun to roll out testing regulations for cannabis products, a market has emerged for reliable and cutting-edge testing labs. In Arizona, Level One Labs is poised to take advantage of the emerging market - and is already ahead of the game.
