Medical Cannabis & Industrial Hemp Certifications

Updated: Mar 30, 2020

Certificate programs are designed to give students mastery over a narrow subject area or topic. These programs are offered in many trades, professional fields, and academic areas and are available at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.

A standard for the cannabis industry should cover all events from the cultivation and post harvest steps of the value chain while in full compliance with both GACP guidelines as well as Good Agricultural Practices (G.A.P). to the final phases of production while adhering to Good Manufacturing Practices (G.M.P.), while keeping in mind that traceability ensures a ‘Chain of Custody’ module, allowing for traceability of the THC & CBD once commercialized across the globe.

What does a certification mean? Who can "certify" your company?

A certification demonstrates your brands dedication, motivation and technical knowledge on a specific platform. Once your teams earn an certification, be it for USDA Organic, Medical Cannabis, etc., you join a select group of individuals -a peer group with demonstrated skills. What does this mean for your brand? This means that you properly manage the reputational risks for your management and investors, the stakeholders of your team as well as the shareholders of your company clearly understand that you have defined your team's goals allowing for the world to know and trust your dedication to your industry.


Speak to groups that have proven themselves on a global scale with diverse markets. Choosing a group that claims to be a "cannabis" or "medical cannabis" certifying agent does not mean that they have the ability to challenge the government when new regulations are imposed.
