Nevada set the standard for the cannabis industry. It is the first state to create a tourism mecca for medical cannabis and to also ensure the efficacy of the products patients consume. Nevada is the model for a safe and controlled market, requiring cannabis products to be treated like almost all other commodity goods available in commerce. Both medical and recreational cannabis are required to be tested and marketed in regulated manners not previously observed in any other cannabis market in the US. Specifically, the state mandated what the federal government’s FDA otherwise does for other goods to ensure consumer protection. The result is the current market that’s thus far not resulted in the issues witnessed in other cannabis industries such as consumer infections and health concerns, misrepresentation, product contamination and consequential recalls, product liability, etc., all of which hurt not only the consumers and the business owners but also the progression of the industry.
In Nevada, there are currently at least 121 Cultivators, 84 Production, 62 Dispensaries and 10 Labs in Nevada. As a licensed independent testing facility, NV Cann typically services licensed cultivation and production entities, but we also services private citizens who want to test their own products or desire confirmation testing for purchased products.
There are also six other labs in the Las Vegas market, multiple of which have been fined and three which have had their licenses suspended and consequently have been shut down for various reasons, including for improper marketing, bias testing, ghost testing, and improper SOP’s. In turn, the state of Nevada has been cracking down on improper practices and methodologies, prioritizing consumer safety.
NV Cann is one of the few labs in the Las Vegas jurisdiction that has not been fined nor had its license suspended. We prioritize consumer safety by employing practices and reporting techniques that don’t contribute to misrepresentation and product recalls, etc. that harm or misinform the consumer. Further we make good faith and reasonable business decisions to ensure neither our clients’ licenses, nor our own licenses, are jeopardized.
For consumer safety and to reduce liability for our clients, we make sure to follow the regulations as provided and engage the state whenever there is regulatory gray area. When it comes to science and laboratory practices we have questions regarding, we are in fluid communication with the state, trying to reconcile those regulatory gray areas, working hand in hand, even inviting the state into our lab.
