Ensure that medical cannabis has been produced in accordance with guidelines for Good Agricultural Practice.
The use of cannabis for medical purposes is becoming more prevalent. This increasing use has resulted in growing concern among consumers about the quality and safety of medical cannabis.
According to the UN Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO), a leading cause of adverse events related to the use of herbal medicines, including cannabis, is poor quality control. SGS Good Agricultural Practice (GAP) for Medical Cannabis certification helps to ensure the quality of medical cannabis by verifying the use of GAP from primary production, through processing and transportation.
