Elevating Standards for Safe Consumption and Innovation

In the wake of Canada’s 2018 legalization of cannabis products, the industry has witnessed significant growth and evolution. As we approach the five-year mark of this historic milestone, we can look at the progress made toward ensuring the safety of these products, particularly in the context of food safety. Join us in exploring the following key aspects of safeguarding the well-being of consumers and driving innovation in the cannabis sector:

  • Delve into the nuanced regulations governing THC and CBD products, uncovering the unique considerations for each.
  • Contrast the similarities and differences between food safety practices in the food industry and the cannabis industry
  • Learn from the wealth of experience in the field as we share best practices for quality assurance of legal cannabis products, drawing from lessons learned to date.
  • Discover how to strike a balance between compliance and driving innovative, profitable products.
