From mom selection, to cloning, to fertilization, cultivation is the process of growing cannabis plants through harvest. Correctly logging each stage of the process, what chemicals are used, and proper testing can ensure a compliant facility.
Making cannabis products for consumption, topical application, inhalation, etc., is manufacturing’s prime directive. Whether extracting oils, or baking brownies, products must attain health and safety approval before becoming available to the public.
Dispensaries are the retail stores where all cannabis products are sold, from Flower, to edibles to concentrates. Making sure the products you sell have been properly approved and are safe to consume is paramount to your business.
Hemp is a strain of cannabis grown specifically for industrial uses such as paper or clothing. What separates hemp from other forms of cannabis, are lower levels of the psychoactive THC and higher levels of CBD, the latter of which is extracted for medical purposes.
