Demeter Laboratory Chosen to Provide Cannabis Oversight in Oklahoma

Demeter Laboratory Chosen to Provide Cannabis Oversight in Oklahoma

The A2LA-accredited Demeter Laboratory was recently awarded a unique contract as part of Oklahoma’s comprehensive plan to ensure uniform quality in medical cannabis products. In 2019 Demeter was the first medical cannabis laboratory in the state of Oklahoma to be accredited to ISO/IEC 17025 by A2LA, distinguishing them as an industry leader in the state and affirming the capabilities and competency of their laboratory. Now, the Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority (OMMA) has contracted Demeter Laboratory to evaluate all other cannabis labs in the state for their adherence to OMMA rules and regulations, and to conduct secondary testing on products submitted to other labs. As part of this contract, Demeter will no longer provide commercial testing of cannabis products, and will dedicate their facility and staff exclusively to OMMA’s quality assurance program.

How A2LA (and the World) is Adjusting to the Digital Conference Space

How A2LA (and the World) is Adjusting to the Digital Conference Space

In any other year, A2LA staff and assessors might have attended a dozen or more conferences, expos, and professional gatherings by now. These opportunities to network and share professional insight were a part of our industry presence that we never anticipated losing altogether, but as is the case with all aspects of modern life, COVID-19 has forced us to make some profound changes. Many of the conferences we usually attend have been cancelled altogether, but others have been re-imagined as “virtual” conferences that seek to translate some of the in-person experience to a digital format through various types of video conferencing, virtual exhibit halls, and interactive presentations.
