This guide provides an in-depth discussion of the ever-changing status of the regulation of the Cannabis plant in the United States (and other parts of the world), as well as the industries surrounding it, including laboratory testing. It also addresses history, regulations, and standards as well as the chemical properties of cannabis and the laboratory methods used to define them. Additionally, the guide examines the equipment, software, and reporting of testing labs; provides future-looking trends and guidance both nationally and internationally; and offers a full directory of resources associated with cannabis regulation and testing.

This third edition updates historical content and adds new historically relevant facts as they relate to regulations, standards, and more. New in this edition is the discussion of the insurance market for cannabis companies, new efforts towards laboratory testing standards and methods, cannabis laboratory accreditation, additional vendors, additional insights into the future of cannabis testing and regulation, and updated resources. (NOTE: The PDF output of this guide fails to properly list the references. To see the original document, with references, see here.) (It also moved to its new primary home at CannaQA wiki.)
