The article touches on why the future of cannabis production Is ‘GMP-Certified’, the financial impacts of GMP on the global cannabis market, why EU GMP standards are one of the highest recognised, as well as planning for GMP from the start of operations.

Read Andrew’s Rolling Stone: Cannabis GMP article to learn more about the challenges of manufacturing and exporting cannabis-derived products to Europe:

“With thousands of legal cannabis companies operating worldwide, business owners are looking for ways to increase revenue while standing out from the crowd. What might be hard for those business owners to hear is that the key could lie in adding more compliance responsibilities to an already heavily regulated process.”
