Cutting Edge Of Cannabis

  • The First Testing Standards In California

    16 JUL 2020 · The first testing standards in California with Alec Dixon, the Director of Client Relations with SC Labs. With five years of experience as a sales consultant in the hydroponic industry and formerly serving in the Navy. He is Outreach Director for Veterans for Medical Marijuana and is on the Board of Directors for Wo/Man’s Alliance for Medical Marijuana. In 2010 Alec along with the other founders opened SC (Science of Cannabis) Labs in Capitola, California, and developed the industry’s first testing standards. These guidelines are now widely adopted by the cannabis community, regulators, governments, and many organizations. As our industry transforms, we’ll continue to support standards, helping clients meet new challenges, advocating for common-sense regulation, and always keeping a strong connection to our cannabis roots. Some liken the past decade of the cannabis movement to the Wild West. Though a passionate, vital community, there was no safety and quality testing regulations or requirements. Four activist entrepreneurs thought there should be a consistent way consumers could trust their cannabis and cultivators could improve their products. The idea: develop testing and certification standards that could be built into the cannabis production process, at scale.
