August 2020 Issue of The Cannabis Scientist

Our cover feature this month poses the question: what’s next for cannabis analysis? To find the answers, we sit down with four analytical experts from the USA’s most established legal cannabis markets to get their vision of cannabis analysis 2.0. Elsewhere, we continue the analytical theme, with a round up of the latest testing news and an interview with cannabis quality consultant, Savino Sguera. Plus, we have an opinion piece on using real-world data to guide cannabis research from University of Alberta’s Jason Dyck, and in this month’s editorial, our Editor asks whether occupational health has been neglected in the industry.
