1 November 2017

This white paper details the history, modern uses, and regulations of cannabis, marijuana, and general botanical production in the United States and offers methods for improved botanical product quality through specialized equipment. Product quality is directly dependent on a consistent, repeatable manufacturing process. Proper laboratory equipment is an essential component for both repeatability and safety. The ideal equipment for cannabis and botanical applications ensures plant or product isolation, contamination control, and proper air filtration. Specially designed ductless fume hoods capture harmful vapors, fumes, and particulates making them a valuable addition to production procedures.
