Meeting Details :

A well-regulated, adult-use, LCHE (Legalized Cannabis and Hemp Edibles) product segment requires manufacturers can test for cannabinoid composition and potency.  However, a licensed LCHE manufacturer faces multiple difficulties in establishing production and QC testing, namely the lack of cannabinoid testing protocols for food matrices.  Complicating the landscape are incomplete state regulations that provide little useful oversight of specialized laboratories.  The webinar will provide LCHE manufacturers with tools to plan product testing as well as providing food-safety experts with policy issues that need further discussion.

Participants will be able to identify current testing requirements in several legalized states as well as the status of testing food matrices.  For food-safety professionals, the overview will make them aware of areas still needing research or policy guidance. 

Attendees will be able to:
1. Understand shared challenges of testing for cannabinoids in food matrices
2. Review current policy issues affecting infused foods testing
3. List current testing standards and common analytic equipment for production and quality testing
