HACCP For Cannabis Edibles Workshop

By |

Course Description:

HACCP is a program to control food/edible safety at every steps of food/edible processing. With the expected approval of edibles in 2019, the next focus would be the development of edible and drinkable cannabis products. This is when quality control measures must be put in place. Health Canada as well as the department of public health may require edible manufacturers to have a HACCP plan. The HACCP plan is a written document identifying food/edible safety hazards and how those hazards are controlled by the manufacturer. This course introduces participants to aspects of physical, chemical and biological food/edible contamination. Topics covered include types and sources of food/edible hazards and factors affecting safety of edible products. Special emphasis will be given to the development, implementation, and maintenance of the HACCP program.

Live Webinar – Cannabis Micro Licence Application Process and Requirements

By |

Course Overview:

The Cannabis Act establishes that an application for one of the Micro Cultivation/Processing Licence must be filed with Health Canada in the form and manner specified by the Minister and must include the information required by the Minister.

Although security requirements are less demanding in comparison to obtaining a Standard Cultivation/Processing Licence, the application process to acquire a Micro Licence under the Cannabis Act can still be complicated and requires undergoing a strict and thorough review by Health Canada. Applicants must ensure that the information provided in the application is detailed and accurate and clearly demonstrates that they are compliant with all the requirements of the Act.

Live Webinar – GMP and GACP for Cannabis Industry

By |

Course Overview:

Currently, there are no GMP requirements for cannabis products, it’s almost certain that in the future, cannabis regulations will require GMP certification for Licensed Producers (LPs) to receive and maintain their license. Even now, sales opportunities may be lost by not maintaining GMP certification as exporting cannabis for medicinal purposes to Europe requires GMP compliance. As a result, more and more consumers will expect to see the certification on the product they buy. For business to business cannabis sales, many LPs are already requiring GMP certification from any other LPs they buy product from.

Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) is a system for ensuring that products are consistently produced and controlled according to quality standards. It is designed to minimize the risks involved in any production that cannot be eliminated through testing the final product.

GMP covers all aspects of production from the starting materials, premises and equipment to the training and personal hygiene of staff. Detailed, written procedures are essential for each process that could affect the quality of the finished product. There must be systems to provide documented proof that correct procedures are consistently followed at each step in the manufacturing process – every time a product is made.

In Europe, European Medicinal Agency (EMEA) requires adherence to Good Agricultural and collection Practices (GACP) for growing and harvesting of herbal medicine. Both GACP and GMP are designed to ensure full traceability back to the seed source for each crop. Following GACP and GMP standards ensures that only the highest quality plants are grown and harvested
