San Jose, CA (PRWEB) March 01, 2012
Medical marijuana has been legal in California for 16 years now, but the industry is still largely unregulated by the state. Concerns for safety and a desire to know exactly what is in the medicine provided by collectives and dispensaries have led to a boom in safety inspectors and testing labs. According to the LA Times, dozens of marijuana testing labs have opened in the past two years, but since the labs are as unregulated as the dispensaries, there are no uniform safety standards. San Jose medical cannabis doctor 420 Cannabis Evaluations Clinic highlights some of the leading innovators who are working to create uniform standards in the absence of regulatory input.
Halent Laboratories, located in Davis, is one of the best-known and most highly regarded medical cannabis testing labs. Founded by chemists at UC Davis, Halent tests medicine for 15 cannabinoids and 8 terpenes, as well for as molds, toxins and pesticides. Halent has developed a method to match compounds found in various strains to the relief of specific illnesses, helping patients identify the best strains for their conditions.
Another leader in cannabis safety certification starts at the source. Clean Green Certified is an independent third-party medical marijuana inspection program that certifies grow operations based on criteria modeled on USDA standards for organic certification. Growers must undergo an annual legal compliance review, on-site facility inspection and thorough crop examination. Clean Green medicine is an excellent option for patients who are concerned about the health effects of chemicals and pesticides.
The trend towards self-regulation has another benefit for patients, note the San Jose marijuana physicians: it separates the dispensaries that are truly devoted to providing nothing but the best medicine to patients from the dispensaries that might not prioritize patients’ health concerns.
As the LA Times article points out, “Only some top-end dispensaries test their products.”
Harborside Health Center, located in Oakland and San Jose, is the nation’s leading cannabis dispensary. All of the cannabis flowers and concentrates accepted by the medical marijuana dispensary are tested for safety and potency. Harborside is also one of only a few cannabis clubs to carry high-CBD medicine, which offers healing benefits without the “high” feeling associated with THC.
During the initial evaluation session, 420 Cannabis Evaluations Clinic doctors can explain the new innovations in quality assurance, and help guide new patients towards medicine that has been thoroughly tested and certified.
