When we discuss growing, producing, and manufacturing medical cannabis, we must think of it as a medicine. Medicine by definition, it is a substance intended to assist you with a medical condition, to help you feel better and not harm you. Drugs produced in the pharmaceutical industry go through extensive quality controls to ensure a level of safety for the consumer or patient. Yet when we talk process and quality controls in medical cannabis production, there is still a lot to learn.
The agency is working on answering these questions through ongoing efforts including feedback from a recent FDA hearing and information and data gathering through a public docket. In order to start understanding what it means for GMP regulated industries, we will discuss what we need to know, for now.
Why You Should Attend:
