Virtual Summits
Focus On: Labs & Cannabis Testing
March 1, 2023 at 1:00pm EDT

Grow Opportunity‘s Focus On virtual event series kicks off March 1, 2023, with a “Focus On” Labs & Cannabis Testing. Canadian licensed producers are required by law to provide a Certificate of Analysis (COA) confirming the safety, potency, and purity of their cannabis products. This essential requirement has opened the door to lab facilities nationwide, sparking conversation, potential for partnerships, and more.

Focus On Labs & Cannabis Testing offers a cost-effective tool to educate your customers and prospective clients, as well as build those trusting relationships that lead to new insights, sales and innovations that drive growth. Join the dialogue as speakers share vital information with attendees regarding cannabis laboratories and testing.

This virtual event will take place between 1 and 3:30pm EDT, with content you can’t afford to miss, including a keynote speaker, panel discussion, sponsor presentations and Q&A opportunity with the speakers.
