Cannabis Course FAQs

Though in the US cannabis edibles are not federally regulated, many states and localities do have rules in place that manufacturers must comply with. Responsible edibles producers also want to make sure their products are high quality and safe for consumers to eat.

Employee training can improve product consistency and prevent contamination. Food safety and quality programs protect consumers, prevent product recalls, and build credibility for cannabis edibles as whole.

Eventually, the FDA will publish regulations for cannabis-infused edibles that will be based on existing food regulations. Pursuing training now puts you a step ahead of your competition.

Robust training programs ensure that employees know and will follow common production and food safety practices, which create efficiencies, prevent recalls and save your company money.
