About the talk

The cannabis industry has a glut of negative stories all too handy for naysayers to build their foundations upon. Here’s the thing. Our manifesto needs to read: if cannabis and all of its downstream derivatives are going to be more universally accepted as medicinal, the plants being grown and the products being manufactured and rapidly consumed in this federally-illegal, yet increasingly ubiquitous community, need to be ethically-produced to be contaminant-free. It may seem nonsensical to even need to vocalize this. But product safety and compliance requires care, diligence, and expertise. This panel provides the insights of experts who understand how to better ensure that products start out clean, and remain clean, such that contamination becomes moot. The panelists will also divulge effective post-processing techniques to further refine and remediate.
