Small business owners and industrial giants in Nevada are preparing for a blossoming cannabis industry to emerge in the Summer of 2017. The industry is expanding and cannabis testing labs are instrumental in providing an end-product that is compliant with public safety. Anh Gray of Reno Public Radio reports that a local facility is upgrading their operations in lieu or plans for recreational cannabis. Recently 374 in Northern Nevada received ISO 17025 accreditation from an independent, non-governmental auditor for their consistent test results regarding both toxicity and potency as well as their stringent testing methods.
Jason Strull, a toxicologist for 374 Labs explained that “as far as cannabis testing goes, it’s sort of the wild, wild West,” Strull explains. “So what this shows to potential customers, and just the general public, is that we’re going the extra mile.” Inaccurate results can have an impact on final product and put the public in danger of over-medicating.
