The Power List 2020 – Analytical Gurus

In addition, I expect to see an increase in research on the almost infinite number of cannabinoids and terpene combinations possible. Having been previously employed at Campbell Soup and the FDA, I’ve always been very aware of the importance of what we consume. Cannabis is no different, with the same focus on quality and safety.
