Cannabis Testing Market - An Update

Date: 10 Nov 2021
Author: Hill Laboratories

On October 4th, communication was sent out by the Medicinal Cannabis Agency stating that results from ISO/IEC 17025:2017 accredited laboratories will be appropriate for testing - Hill Labs is one of these laboratories. This is applicable to starting material destined for export, cannabis based ingredients and medicinal cannabis products for tests not deemed “critical”. Critical tests for cannabis based ingredients and products include active ingredients (cannabinoids, terpenes etc and dosage forms). We currently have a wide range of testing available for the medicinal cannabis industry. 

We believe this is a positive outcome for the industry as the testing is now easier to set up and is more cost effective compared to GMP, whilst still being of high quality. At Hill Laboratories we strive to offer a high quality service to our customers in this industry and we continue to review our services as the requirements evolve, in order to become your laboratory of choice.
