Dr. Lupoi graduated summa cum laude from LaRoche College in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, with a B.S. in Chemistry, prior to earning a Ph.D from Iowa State University. There, Dr. Lupoi began evaluating plants with analytical tools such as spectroscopy, research that continued for two postdoctoral appointments for the University of Queensland/Lawrence Berkeley National Lab and the National Renewable Energy Lab.Before coming to RJ Lee Group (RJLG), Dr. Lupoi led research projects focused on modeling chemical properties from large data sets. These models were designed using spectroscopy coupled with analytical methods like chromatography, enabling high-throughput techniques for rapidly screening plant chemistry, including cannabis. At RJLG, among other roles, Dr. Lupoi serves as a technical expert, auditor, and consultant for the WSLCB and laboratories in Nevada.Dr. Lupoi is also the Editor-in-Chief of both Terpenes and Testing Magazine and Extraction Magazine, positions that have allowed him to combine several passions, including helping the masses geek out over cool science. In 2018, Dr. Lupoi led a class for the Osher Lifelong Learning Initiative at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh that taught basic cannabis science to senior citizens.Dr. Lupoi considers true living to include spending time with his wife and cats, brewing and drinking hop-laden or sour beers, jamming to metal/reggae/funk, and reading Hunter S. Thompson, yet again.

As President of ACS Laboratory I am ensuring that accuracy, transparency, and customer service are paramount to our testing lab. As an ISO 17025 , CLIA, and more certified lab, we strive for the highest accuracy for medical cannabis testing as well as CBD products made from hemp. Without standards, compliance measures and proper science, cannabis testing would be a guessing game and pose numerous threats to the industry. Ensuring the end consumer receives a safe, non-harmful product through third party independent laboratory testing is vital to any operating cannabis business. There have been dozens of examples of tainted products, purposefully or not, that reached consumers hands by lack of standards, testing and other shortcomings throughout the overall process. Moving forward ACS Laboratory’s focus is to continue to support and enhance the ability for cannabis companies and brands to deliver clean, safe products and do so in a manner that promotes positive standards throughout the industry.

Started so this panel is regarded Regulatory Compliance. And I think that you know, this is something that's very close to me own expertise so I'm Jason Lupoi Editor-in-Chief of Terpenes and Testing Magazine and Extraction Magazine. I also work at a company where we do lab audits of cannabis labs. And so one of the things that I've seen the common themes that we've seen with problems with analytical labs is that a some labs just don't have the expertise they're not fluent in method validation

and I think one of the overarching things that I've seen with a lot of Laboratories is they are not really sure what they need to be doing to be compliant. And so there is no for the state of Washington, for example, there's a whole litany of things. There's a checklist that that Labs can actually use to self-police themselves before we come in and we audit them and you A lot of ambiguity there until we wanted to do a panel that kind of shed some light on some of these topics and so we've got four-panel that I was on

earlier this morning. It seemed like there were a lot of unanswered questions at the end. So I really want to open up the floor to allow all of our panelists to introduce themselves and kind of talk a little bit about their background. Hello, my name is Dan Gustafik, the President and Founder of Hybrid Tech. We are an engineering design group of operational aircraft units in Canada.
