Rhode Island Licenses First Medical Cannabis Testing Facility

Rhode Island has licensed its first medical cannabis testing facility, according to a Providence Journal report.

Green Peaks Analytical, located in Warwick, is the first third-party business licensed to test products for pesticides, metals and solvents. The Rhode Island Department of Business Regulation will establish a timeframe over the next six weeks by which all medical cannabis products will also be tested for potency, Providence Journal reported, and at a later, to-be-determined date, products will also be tested for contaminants.

Until now, the state’s licensed cultivators and dispensaries conducted their own testing or contracted with private, unlicensed laboratories, according to the news outlet.
