STATEMENT FROM THE CANNABIS BUSINESS ASSOCIATION OF ILLINOIS
The Cannabis Business Association of Illinois has advocated for the continued development of testing standards and is committed to engaging with all stakeholders to bring patients and consumers the highest-quality products. See our statement on testing regulations in the State of Illinois below.
Statement from Pamela Althoff, Executive Director of the Cannabis Business Association of Illinois:
The safety and quality of cannabis products and the well-being of patients and consumers are top priorities of Illinois’ medical and adult-use cannabis industry.
Illinois law requires state-approved, independent laboratories to conduct random-sample testing of cannabis before any product can be brought to market. Every product sold to consumers is backed by a Certificate of Analysis verifying it has met quality assurance testing, as mandated by State law.
The Cannabis Business Association of Illinois will continue to work with regulators and other key stakeholders on the continued development of testing standards to ensure consumers are protected and continue to enjoy the highest-quality products.
