About the talk

Everyone’s selling CBD products; farmers’ markets, gas stations, beer distributors, even a gun store in Western Pennsylvania. The internet is also peppered with throngs of vendors all making claims regarding their products. But when CBD abounds in nearly every type of marketplace, the questions you should be asking are “where did the hemp come from, how was it grown, and who made these products?” These questions are even more relevant considering the cost of CBD-containing products, which are often more expensive than traditional pharmaceutical drugs. Making these inquiries, however, isn’t a recommendation to strictly consumers. Vendors who white-label products made by contract manufacturers should understand their supplier’s processes. Was the material, for example, made in a facility that was certified under good manufacturing practices (GMP)? Facilities that spend the resources to achieve this certification recognize the power it holds, as it provides enhanced translucency and trust that extends downstream to consumers. And when millions of us are consuming increasing quantities of cannabinoids and terpenes, knowing that the products we ingest have been meticulously crafted in well-kept facilities that follow standard operating procedures and adhere to detailed documentation practices can help separate quality manufacturers from those strictly interested in quantity. This panel highlights what GMP entails, and why it’s important for the generation of cannabinoid-derived medicine.
