The opportunities for hemp and CBD are huge, but so are the risks of not running a tight operation that meets federal and state standards that keep customers safe. We were excited to talk about the following topics and how that can ensure that your Hemp and/or CBD business is compliant, efficient and maintains a great reputation:

  • First steps to GMP's

  • Who to hire (consultant or full time)

  • What to expect in establishing GMP's

  • Why GMP's matter (and what happens if you don't)
