Steep Hill Provides Cannabis Quality Assurance Amidst Pesticide Usage Concerns

Donald Land Steep Hill

Dr. Donald Land is the Chief Scientific Consultant for Steep Hill, one of the leading scientific cannabis analysis labs in the world. He is also a Professor of Chemistry at UC Davis. Dr. Land recently joined Ganjapreneur to discuss the trending topic of pesticide use in legal cannabis markets, and how Steep Hill aims to protect consumers with thorough pesticide testing.

A lawsuit in Colorado recently became the first example of the risks that come with an unregulated agricultural market. Currently, testing for pesticides is not mandated in several states with legal markets (medical and recreational), although such testing is required for many other products under the FDA and other federal institutions. In this interview, Dr. Land discusses the importance of mandated pesticide tests, as well as the methodologies that Steep Hill uses and the inherent risks to consumers in an unregulated market.

Steep Hill, with offices open or opening soon in WA, CO, NV, NM, and OR, in addition to CA and others, has invested heavily in state-of-the-art equipment capable of meeting the most stringent testing requirements.
