Standardizing the Profile of Medical Compounds in Cannabis Using Space Exploration Technology.

In this video: Dr. Dedi Meiri

 

Like any plant, cannabis is a product of its environment within the limits of its genetic complement and, like any plant, the environmental context determines many attributes such as size, shape, colour, taste and complement of secondary metabolites such as THC and CBD. The prospect of raising cannabis to the status of a conventional pharmaceutical commodity requires breeding and horticultural management strategies, including environment control recipes, that ensure the standardization of the profile of medical compounds. Technologies that evolved in the life support requirements for space exploration will be discussed and demonstrated for their relevance in medical cannabis production.

The Controlled Environment Systems Research Facility at the University of Guelph In Canada is among the world’s leading venues for research and technology development devoted to biological life support (ie. plants in space) for human space exploration. The requirements for high fidelity environment control for reliable and safe food production in space are among the most critical issues to resolve as food determines how far from Earth we can go and how long we can stay. These same plant production technologies have equally useful applications here on Earth, especially in the phyto-pharmaceutical field of medical cannabis.

MANDATORY TESTING LIMITS, QUALITY ASSURANCE & CONTROL

In this video: Av Singh, Dr. John Coleman, Dr. Brigitte Simons, Jodi McDonald, Dr. Kaveh Kahen, Barinder Rasode

 

The stringency of the Canadian Cannabis Act enforcing product compliance to set testing guidelines is being evaluated by the global marketplace. In this session, industry leaders will talk about the challenges and tactical execution of how products are tested and reported to pass compliance for lot release. There is opportunity to minimize risk in the analytical variance of cannabis product testing between labs and to better understand standardization for potency, pesticide quantification and trace contaminant investigations lending to higher value product development. Our experts will impart a series of “frequently asked questions” and solutions that will lend to practical information to increase your ability to stay within the regulatory lines, and give your customers a quality assured product.

Cannabis has been off-limits to doctors and researchers in the US for the past 80 years, but recently scientists have discovered its anti-cancer properties. Armed with only these laboratory studies, desperate parents obtain cannabis oil from underground sources to prevent childhood cancers. From Abby Epstein and Ricki Lake (THE BUSINESS OF BEING BORN), WEED THE PEOPLE follows these families as they take their children’s survival into their own hands. Hosted by: Krishna Andavolu
