Legalization of marijuana and hemp has fueled competitive innovation and the adoption of technologies to advance production of various cannabis concentrates, derivatives, and infused-products.


  • How are these products regulated?
  • What local/state/federal regulations, codes, and standards apply to this nascent industry?

We will briefly explore food safety, public health, and occupational health and safety considerations during the cultivation, handling, processing, refinement, manufacturing, and labeling of products containing cannabis, cannabis concentrates, and cannabis-derived compounds.
