Guidance for Testing

The MMCC has posted a final draft document entitled "The Natalie M. Laprade Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission's (MMCC) Technical Authority for medical cannabis testing​" as an accompanying document to the previously posted Registration Form for Independent Testing Laboratories (ITLs). This document is intended to provide additional detail in support of the requirements of COMAR 10.62.16. This document does not establish any rights for a person and is not binding on the MMCC or the public. The MMCC is committed to evidence-based decision making when implementing technical guidance for the registered ITL. As research into cannabis use and safety advances, this report will be revised and updated to reflect the state of science as it pertains to the medical cannabis industry.
