medical marijuana; verification; specifications


Producers are eagerly searching for ways to demonstrate control of their processes to be able to meet consumer demand. However, ensuring that products are consistent, safe, and of established quality parameters for an herbal product currently relies solely on testing of final product. This will provide a robust methodology to allow producers to demonstrate control of their process and minimize risks that are inherent in commercial processes.

The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
